I originally saw it on TV .I'm not quite 100% certain about the 1980's and it could've been Alex Cox who introduced it(i do remember however Cox's intro did for GREAT SILENCE as part of his BBC Moviedrome series).
I wasn't aware of the pre-cert vhs and i didn't manage to catch DJANGO again until the AKTIV Spaghetti Western series of videos came out in the late 1990's.

I'm pretty sure Alex Cox showed DJANGO as part of his Moviedrome series...

Defo released on UK Pre-cert, but like Isaid many of the fly-by-night pre-cert labels didn't care if films were banned or cut, they just put them out to make a fast buck.

Well arguably its better than A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS.


There's n doubt in my mind that DJANGO is better than A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS. I also prefer GREAT SILENCE and COMPANEROS to FISTFUL.


I prefer a lot more than what you mentioned to FISTFUL.

But try telling the "Leone only" people. :-[

It's ridiculous, isn't it? Leone was the first, therefore is the best. Granted, I prefer THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST to any other spaghetti, but that's my opinion and I would criticise anyone else for thinking otherwise. That said, there are a few Corbucci westerns that I enjoy more than the first two DOLLARS films.

Yes - that would've been about 1993 or 1994, after it got its official cert - I vividly remember staying up to watch it and being blown away (excuse the pun...) - it was so unlike any of the westerns I'd seen at home before then (my dad is a westerns/Eastwood fan). Cox does quite an interesting chat to camera about the film on the Argent DVD release from 3 years ago, and the interview with Franco Nero is fun.

Have to agree with the comment about the English dub for Nero - it's a disappointment when the rest of the actors seem to have ended up with at least (IMO) half decent dubs. Trying to lay my hands on a copy of the Blue Underground disc with the original Italian track at the moment...

I'm there with you on this one as I like Leone's movies, but I think he's overrated.

I love DJANGO and I love most of the Corbucci spaghettis COMPANEROS being my favourite), but I don't think there's any SW better than THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST - I know that they're the two mostly widely-known films with in the genre and are popular among non-fans but they're well known for a reason. Just my opinion, of course...

After watching the dollars trilogy and Django. Id say I have to alter what i said before and say that Django is a tie with The Good,The Bad, And The Ugly. As for Once upon a time in the west. I think Django is far better. Also I dont think Id consider Leone over rated. Definatly the best spaghetti western director in my opinion. Corbucci would be a close second.

I think he's overrated in that the man was uncomfortable handling action scenes and had to leave these to other directors like Margheriti, Giancarlo Santi and de Martino. The scenes with his protagonists and antagonists standing about for what seems like an eternity before a duel would be nothing without Morricone's music accompanying them. Don't misunderstand, I like his movies and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST is one of my favorite films of all time, but SSOOOOO much praise and near Godhood is heaped on the man as if he was the be all and end all of SWs. He was a great director but he wasn't the ONLY great director of SWs and he certainly was not without faults as none of the others were either.

Even though he directed only 7 movies, none of them were really different from the others. He never showed versatility as Corbucci did but then, he took so long to do one film, and maybe he never cared to stray from his "formula". Plus his attitude concerning MY NAME IS NOBODY put me off to him a bit as well.

The one thing I will say about his films that I can't really say for the others, is that you wouldn't necessarily have to know what the characters were saying in his movies. They're like pictures that tell the story without words. Even though the duel scenes would have little to no impact without Morricone's superb music, the scenes tell you all you need to know.

Hey zombiefan3999, how many of Corbucci's movies have you seen? I have some more of his spaghetti westerns lying around that I haven't seen yet like SONNY & JED and WHAT AM I DOING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE REVOLUTION and THE SPECIALIST. Can't wait for his fusto film GOLIATH AGAINST THE VAMPIRES to come out! Wild East is supposed to be putting this out soon.

That's definitely three good ones. You should check out THE GREAT SILENCE if you wanna see another great movie that give Leone a run for his money, IMO. Words cannot describe the bleak atmosphere of GREAT SILENCE, and another hauntingly superb score from Morricone.
