Trivia

The title "Django" is a reference to renowned jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, who had a crippled hand. Viewers at the time would have been aware of this allusion.
The film spawned hundreds of unofficial sequels. Some incorrectly--and unauthorizedly--had "Django" in the title, so as to cash in on the original. The film was so popular in Germany that almost every Franco Nero western there bears the "Django" name.
The Major's men wear red scarves over their faces to hide the fact that because so many extras were otherwise employed on other pictures in the area at the time, they were left with only the "ugliest" ones, who were deemed not menacing enough.
The graphic violent content of the film led to its being banned in several countries, and it was rejected by the UK until 1993. It was not rated in the US.
The inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's film Django Unchained (2012), although it is not a remake of this film, despite the theme song being used in the opening credits and Franco Nero making a cameo opposite Jamie Foxx's Django.
Film debut of Luciano Rossi.
