Personal Quote:

I saw that in Spain there were these magnificent horses, these extraordinary canyons, this desert landscape which looked a lot like Mexico, or Texas, or rather like we imagined them to be. So when [Sergio Leone] and I were shooting [The Last Days of Pompeii (1959)], we often said to each other, "Hang on a minute, we could make an amazing Western here, couldn't we?" 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 »
