Django Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P85883~Sergio Corbucci~sergiocorbucci]] crafted one of the most popular and widely imitated of the Italian "spaghetti westerns" of the 1960s with this violent but stylish action saga. A mysterious man named Django ([[Performer~P52262~Franco Nero~franconero]]) arrives in a Mexican border town dragging a small coffin behind him. When he attempts to save a woman who is being attacked by a group of bandits, he finds himself in the middle of a conflict between Mexican gangsters and racist Yankee thugs, with the innocent townspeople and a fortune in Mexican gold stuck somewhere in between. Django becomes a force to be reckoned with when it's discovered his coffin actually contains a Gatling gun. Django proved so popular in Europe that over 30 sequels and follow-ups were produced, though [[Performer~P52262~Franco Nero~franconero]] would not return to the role until 1987's [[Feature~V119505~Django 2: Il Grande Ritorno~djangostrikesagain]] (the only sequel endorsed by Corbucci), which proved to be the last film in the series. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
