Looks like John Ford's back filming "The Fugitive" with Henry Fonda

I see serapes and bandidos. Crew clothes are sixties or seventies. Wild guess: The Wild Bunch?

Viva Zapata!

The Three Amigos?

Observations: This is from the modern era. Evidenced by what the crew members are wearing, the presence of at least one African-American crew member, and the construction of the crane itself.

Don't yet recognize the film.

Monogram's big production for 1947, "The Train that Brought the Horses to El Paso". Aaaand ACTION!

The 1973 PANCHO VILLA with Telly Savalas.


Three Amigos is my guess too, and John Landis is the guy in the plaid shirt.

What about OLD GRINGO?
