The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
Italy, Spain | 1966 | Sergio Corbucci
Here’s the classic spaghetti Western that spawned one official sequel and over 30 unofficial ones (including Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained). Franco Nero plays a mysterious drifter who drags a coffin around with him as he deals with bandidos and other sleazy outlaws on the U.S.-Mexico border. Originally banned in Britain, this movie from the director of The Great Silence and The Mercenary (see 2/7 & 8)“rates alongside Leone's Dollars trilogy as one of the daddies of the spaghetti/paella Western…There are enough mud-wrestling prostitutes, whippings, ear-loppings, explosions and scenes of wholesale slaughter to keep any muchacho happy” (Time Out Film Guide).
