Trivia

According to the actors and director, the producers decided to release the movie in countries outside Italy as "Django, Kill!" as a way to take advantage of the success of a prior release, Django (1966) starring Franco Nero. In reality, "Django" had nothing to do with "Se sei Vivo Spara." See more »

Goofs

One of the hanged men is plainly breathing (albeit shallowly) in the foreground, to the viewer's right, as the Stranger is washing-up (after shooting Oaks) in the background. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Zorro: Pancho, you idiot, you didn't have to kill him, did ya?!
Pancho: I'm sorry sir. But all my life, I've searched for gold. And this man is full of it.

Atypical spaghetti western
18 November 2001 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

It first seems it's going to be a standard "hunt-down-for-revenge" western, but then half an hour in it takes a surprising turn. In fact, at first you don't know where it's going, and it's a lot of fun trying to figure it out. There's certainly a lot going on (various subplots), and it's directed in a slightly surreal style that keeps you interested. In the end, the movie bites off more than it chews - some things seem unresolved at the end (where did Django's Indian friends go, for example?), though since I saw the 110 minute version instead of the 117 minute version, maybe some things got lost in the cut. Though it's not perfect, spaghetti western fans will find enough to make it worth their while.
