Happy birthday to the Italian western queen....

Happy birthday to the magnificent force that is Claudia Cardinale.

Born on this day, Italian/Tunisian film star Claudia has been the muse of iconic filmmakers such as Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti and my personal favourite, Sergio Leone.

In 2018, @Almeria Western Film Festival Oficial presented Claudia with her well deserved "Tabernas De Cine" award in 2018. ❤️

Thanks to Jose, Vera & Javier Arnal Página for allowing me in to Claudia's amazing press conference at Oasys MiniHollywood, where she stunned and wowed the room with her wit, charm and sense of humour.

Claudia was magnetic, mischievous and charming throughout her stay....

Here are some memories of a special few days, including being one of many who surrounded Claudia as she gracefully re-enacted the famous walk from McBain's ranch at Sweetwater to roughly where the well would have been in Once Upon a Time in the West

Thanks to Monika Rausch and the friend I call the Location Master & Sheriff of Tabernas, Ray Watts <
