its not a matter of these movies being made bad .......or given a small budget. their was just NO budget!
we are talking about turky in the 1960, 1970 ........ in this time a huge part of the turkies population left the country because their was no work ...... turky was a very poor country than.

they didnt have any money so they had to use what they had ...... as we say in holland "row with the paddels that you have" (roeien met de riemen die je hebt!).

scores were taken from known movies ...... but that also happend in italian/spanish productions.....even scene's were taken from other movies ..... doesnt make the movies less interesting for me ..... just have to be aware of the contect that they were made in.

probably the biggets part of the budget if their was any was spended on the clothes.......
a good thing is, turks make very good mexicans!

the film that they had to use was often damages.....so often the master film was allready damaged.

what i find most interesting about the turkish westerns is that they go a step further with the violence as the italian onces ...... children and woman get shot in the face ...... very brute mutalation, for example in the movie "Krallarin Öfkesi" a bandit is hanged up-site down above a fire ...... the other person looks how he burns to death!
the movies have a diferent moral and the machoism is taken to a whole new level :-) ..... what can be quiet enoying every now and than ;-)

I started to review the movies, so I can post the reviews here (you have to take my broken english as an exra! )

    Cenk Kiral told me that the movies were generally so bad that they were made, shown in Turkey and then relegated to storage. They were made with minuscule budgets that did not allow for decent props, ... more
