24 September 1969: The Last Valley - filming

Released in January 1971, filming of “The Last Valley”, at Halliford Studios, Shepperton, England, and in Trins, Tirol, Austria, seems to have taken place during 1969, because there were 40th Anniversary showings on 24 and 27 September 2009.

Michael's role as Hansen may have come as a result of his performance in “Michael Kohlhaas.”

Review from a press book for The Valley (Obscured by Clouds):

In this intense chronicle of a peasant revolt, Michael Gothard played the part of a young soldier who joined Kohlhaas’ band, but who, refusing to obey, looted for his own gain, and finally died by hanging. His truculent performance, especially in the last scenes with Anita Pallenberg, earned him a very similar role in THE LAST VALLEY, James Clavell’s ponderous allegory.
