Alongside Sergio Leone's Man With No Name trilogy, Sergio Corbucci's Django was a major hit that established the Spaghetti Western as an internationally popular genre. It made a star of Franco Nero, who as Django trudges into town dragging a mud-stained coffin behind him. After he saves Loredana Nusciak from being whipped to death by a group of Mexican bandits, he finds himself in the middle of a war between Mexican revolutionaries and a band of sadistic Ku Klux Klan racists who wear red hoods, led by the fanatical Major Jackson (Eduardo Fajardo). The film earned a reputation as one of the most violent films ever made at the time, and was subsequently refused a certificate in the United Kingdom until 1993. Over thirty unofficial sequels followed, until Nero reprised his role in 1987's Django Strikes Again, (produced with Corbucci's involvement), Nero also made a cameo appearance in Quentin Tarantino's 2012 film Django Unchained, a homage to Corbucci's original. Featuring an addictively catchy title song performed by Rocky Roberts, and Grand Guignol set pieces that make it a borderline horror movie at times, Django is a name you're not likely to forget in a hurry.
