Storyline

In the opening scene a lone man walks, behind him he drags a coffin. That man is Django. He rescues a woman from bandits and, later, arrives in a town ravaged by the same bandits. The scene for confrontation is set. But why does he drag that coffin everywhere and who, or what, is in it? Written by Michael Lawn <mlawn@attmail.com>

Trivia

The title Django is a reference to the renowned jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, who had a crippled hand. Viewers at the time would have been aware of this allusion. See more »

Goofs

With the exception of a sawn-off shotgun used by one of Jackson's men and Django's machine gun (which appears to be a fictional model inspired by the Montigny mitrailleuse and the Maxim gun), the firearms shown throughout the film are historically inaccurate for a film set in the years immediately following the American Civil War. These weapons are the Colt Single Action Army (first made in 1873) and Colt New Service (1898) revolvers, as well as the Winchester 1892, 1894 and 1906 lever-action rifles. See more »

Quotes

Nataniele: I sure never thought I'd end up grave-digging and not even getting paid for it, either. Anyhow, it's better to be above ground doing that than below ground doing nothing.

A man and his coffin
12 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Franco Nero is Django, a man dragging a coffin behind him, seeking vengeance for the wrongs dealt to him and his loved one in the Western staple. When we first meet him he saves a hybrid girl from being horse-whipped. But which side is he playing for, and where do his loyalties really lie? Very enjoyable and the theme song is great, but avoid the dubbed version I implore you, as it's one of the worst one I've ever heard. Perhaps not as well known or as good as "the Man with No Name" trilogy, but well worth seeing none the less.

My Grade: B

Blue Underground DVD Extras: Part of BU's Spaghetti Western Collection. "Django- The One and Only" (13 minute documentary); Poster & Stills gallery; Talent Bios for Sergio Corbucci and Franco Nero; Theatrical Trailer (I have this film released by Anchor Bay as well, and while the BU version is superior, I'm keeping that one too because it has a nifty Django shoot out game and came paired with "Django Strikes Again")

Easter Eggs: Highlight the coffin for Trailers of "Django Kill!", "Run, Man, Run", and "A Man called Blade"
