Outlaw of Red River / El proscrito del río Colorado / Django, killer per onore (Maury Dexter, 1965)

I heard of this film in a spaghetti wetsern book. The reviewer said it had overtones of a spanish soap opera. Sounds kinda like forgotten pistolero. In just about every spagheti western, the henchmen is just a guy who gets killed quickly by the anti hero. However, in this one, the story is told through the eyes of the henchman. Cirected by Maury Dexter. Starring George Montgomery.

Sounds pretty interesting. I see there are a couple of familiar faces in it! So have you seen it?


(korano) #3

Nope. Haven’t seen it but I created a post of it as info collecting.

I’ll probably keep an eye out for it on my searches. Quite often the villains are the best thing in some SW’s.

BTW…off topic but geez you racked up the posts quick! Django already! Congrats :wink:

I have seen this only in french language but wouldn’t waste one silver dollar getting english dubbed version. Boring, talky, overtly melodramatic (oh god I’m talking like LAW & ORDER here…!) B-western with lousy orchestrated score and clumsy editing that destroys action scenes that are few & far between to begin with. I don’t have anything against pre-Leone SWs but this really sucks.

“Famously” retitled as Django the Condemned/Django the Honourable Killer and re-released to cash in on Corbucci’s classic.

Very boring film, 1/5 stars.

Melodrama western with characters as interesting as people in one of your worst nightmares. Cannot see many people getting any enjoyment from this one, and agree with previous posters an extremely boring film.

This Spanish only production, as far as it seems dated 1965, was released in Italy in early June 1967 disguised as a SW. Interestingly, the suggestive posters below refer unequivocally to the Django variation played by Garko in 10.000 Dollars for a Massacre, released in March of the same year.
