Tombstone


The famous western town 'Mini Hollywood' near Tabernas (Almeria), location of many 
'Spaghetti Western' movies, was chosen to play 'Tombstone'.
A good choice ... for a dirty, earthy 'OK Corral' set.
'Mini Hollywood' was once designed by Carlo Simi for the Sergio Leone Western
"For a few dollars more" as 'El Paso' Town Set, 1965.
Wyatt Earp 'DOC' already saw an opportunity here to earn good money. Pretty farsighted!
Today it's an amusement park with very little left of the old atmosphere...

More than 100 'Extras' were needed for the 'Tombstone' scenes.

'Extras' were able to earn more on one day in 'Tombstone' than they usually get for a week 
on the field or in a factory. Everyone wanted to be an 'Extra' in a movie!
