  1. Read Lee and Gina were difficult at times with the director and James Mason didnt enjoy making the film at all.

    Scotia International produced a half dozen films in short order in early 70's in Spain with noted actors such as Carol Baker, Sturart Whitman, Robert Shaw, Chuck Conners, Telly Savalas, Clint Walker etc but all of them seemed rushed and were considered below par films by critics.

    Also read Yul Brenner was initially offered the lead in Captain Apache and turned it down. Albert Grimaldi offered a PEA film, Indio Black, to Lee and he turned it down and Yul Brenner took it.

    Lee enjoyed recording the songs over the credits for Captain Apache and several sides for his fan club at a recording studio in Madrid. Lee said in an interview he was inspired to do it because his friends Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin sang in Paint Your Wagon.
