Personal Quote:

Violence without reason, and often just for the sake of violence. It's the same reason, I believe, the main reason for the success of the films of James Bond. See more »

Trivia:

A popular (though incorrect) urban legend in Europe is that Corbucci discovered Franco Nero for the leading role of Django (1966) while the latter was working the pumps at a gas station. Nero had, in fact, appeared in several films before he was cast. See more »
