Title: Franco Nero movies re-released as Django movies?
Post by: MarcMorris on 02 May 2013 - 11:35
I know in Germany a lot of Nero's non Western movies were re-released and re-titled to cash in on the Django craze. Can anyone think of any titles?

I'm aware of  the Enzo Castellari Jaws knock-off The Shark Hunter (1979), which was resold in Germany as Dschungel - Django [Jungle Django].

Over the years I have heard this -- well, shall we call it rumour? -- several times but I cannot think of one single film apart from the above-mentioned DSCHUNGEL DJANGO. So, yes, there were many Django retitlings in the western genre but I have serious doubts about Nero's non-western movies. Then again I have not seen as many of Nero's lesser known films as I'd like to (at least not with the German dub). If someone knows better I'd be happy to be corrected.

As far as retitled western films are concerned I added a link in the other thread, Marc.
