Django - Luciano Rossi's role


(captainquirk) #1

Who does this actor play in Sergio Corbucci’s classic? I’m inclined to think that he’s the ugly Klan member of Jackson’s gang who says ‘come upstairs with me’ to Silvana Bacci and then gets shot along with Ringo. However, the Italian Wikipedia article (and one or two written sources) says that he and Simon Arriaga played Miguel (Hugo’s right-hand man) in different scenes.

As you rightly said, Rossi plays the Klan member of Jackson’s gang.

Yes, he’s the one who slaps a whore after she refused to go upstairs with him. But not to be confused with the scarfaced “Ringo” who was played by Jose Terron.

Here’s the aforementioned part of the Italian Wikipedia article (translated by Google):
Simón Arriaga and Luciano Rossi interpret the same character in different scenes, but in the opening credits was only accredited Arriaga.

Don’t think this is correct.

He one of the guy who Nero shoots during the bar scene if I recall.

Bill knows his facts :slight_smile:

The very same thing with picture proof is written in the book every Luciano Rossi fan must own, “A Violent Professional: The Films of Luciano Rossi”

I hadn’t really ‘clocked’ this fellah - although of course I’ve seen Django many times, and plenty of other films he’s been in. Weird really - so I was thinking - well, he can’t have that sort of distinctive ‘look’ that many other supporty-spag folk have… I was thinking of those particularly spag-ugly phizogs of Jose Manuel Martin, Lorenzo Robledo, and of course my fave - Sir Ricky Boido. 8)
So I goggled the book on amazon and saw that Sir Federico himself has written the foreword to this book.
And it starts "Two actors who look so much alike…"
So that told me!

Anyway, thanks BsA/Soren, and to make amends I’ve ordered the book (only 3 and a half quid including postage from ebay) :slight_smile:

OOOooh! Them mean n’ scary Fossit Brothers. 8) 8)
Great pic - Sir Federico looks as deranged as ever, and Luciano is on my radar now. I should be seeing these two bad boys soonish as I’m working my way through the Sartanas at the mo.

Luciano dropped through my letter box this morning. Nice l’il book!
Of course I recognise him now - from Django - but particularly with the knife sticking out of his throat in Run Man Run and from Django the Bastard. He makes a great fop! 8)
