Sergio Leone's westerns were very popular in the Soviet Union, where they inspired a series of "Red Westerns" (aka "Eastern Westerns" and "Sov-Easterns") often set during the Basmachi Revolt of the 1920s, which pitted Islamic traditionalists against Communist reformers in Central Asia. Co-scripted by Andrei Konchalovsky, The Seventh Bullet centers on Maxumov, a Red Army officer whose men are persuaded to switch sides by the charismatic Basmachi leader Khairulla. In a daring move, Maxumov allows himself to be captured and brought to Khairulla's stronghold, where he struggles to regain the hearts and minds of his apostate soldiers. The ideological battles (presented with remarkable ambiguity) are matched by slam-bang shootouts and chases.
Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
