You can usually distinguish a SW by the soundtrack during the movie. They nearly all had the whistling or high pitch squeals all through the movie. Most were made in Spain and were directed by a lot of Italian and other European men.
Like Featherfeet mentioned, they were called Spaghetti Westerns because of the Italian Directors and we all know that Italians are famous for Spaghetti.
Hope that helps explain where the term came from.
Waresbear, Lonesome Dove is not a SW, albeit a truly great show to watch. I have it on the shelf and will still watch it every time it comes on the tele and I have the time to sit through it.
smrobs, I agree those always were fun to watch.
Joe, actually there are only the 2 , My Name is Trinity and They Still Call me Trinity. The others that came before these weren't true to canon. They had the same people( Spencer and Hill), but in different roles.
