Known especially for his baroque, funny and violent Italian westerns, Navajo Joe, Django, El Mercenario, The Great Silence and Companeros, Sergio Corbucci is also a director whose extensive filmography includes more than sixty feature films.

From post-war neorealism to the melodramas of the fifties, from the golden age of genre cinema (western, gothic, peplum) to the heyday of comedy (his favorite genre) until the difficult years, seventies and eighties, he goes through four decades of Italian cinema, marrying all the movements, sometimes precursor, always animated by the passion for film.

Roman to the tips of his nails, endearing personality, "the other Sergio" has not attracted the interest of criticism. This book is the first to cover his entire career, a rich and exciting work to discover in all its facets.

A visceral cinephile who has been on the airwaves and various sites (Kinok, Zoom Back, the Fiches du Cinéma), Vincent Jourdan is the author of the blog Inisfree (http://inisfree.hautetfort.com/) where he shares since 2004 his taste eclectic, embracing with a broad and generous movement of John Ford and Sergio Corbucci, Africa and Asia, Cinemascope and Super 8.

President of the Association Regard Indépendant, Vincent animates since 1999 the Rencontres Cinema and Video in Nice around the cinema which takes a step aside. Traveling in Sergio Corbucci's cinema is his first work.
