Western Movies With Thai Locations


DC1066

Recommended Posts

I'm sure its been done before, but following on from the thread on Bangkok Dangerous, and with the film awards season in full swing, can we see who comes up with nominations for the best western movie with a Thai setting?

I'm not one for rules, so we'll see where it goes, but I was thinking about any Hollywood movie that uses Thai locations (whether stated as Thailand or not).

There are some obvious examples such as:

Bangkok Dangerous

The Beach

The Man with the Golden Gun

all of which we have seen in the last few weeks.

Less obvious - to me anyway - I was watching a typical Sunday afternoon lazing around film a while back, watching Frank Sinatra in Never so Few (1959).

The closing scene was at Wat Arun - interesting to see what it looked like 50 years ago.

Does anyone have any other nominees for the TV Best Film award?

City Of Ghosts an excellent film directed and starring Matt Dillon had scenes from Bangkok though much of the film was shot in Cambodia.

On the Western front the famous Clint Eastwood spaghetti western trilogy where he starred as the Man With No Name was shot entirely on location on Koh Samet, why it was called a spaghetti western is still to this day a mystery as no spaghetti is eaten during the films and is very difficult to source on the island itself.

Lee Van Kleef is buried on Koh Samet he loved it so much there.

Wrong.

He was buried at Forest Lawn in the Hollywood Hills, USA.

A "spaghetti western" is an Italian-made western.
