50th Anniversary of the premier of “Django and Sartana are Coming”


Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the Rome premier of “Django and Sartana are Coming”

Directed by Demofilo Fidani and starring Hunt Powers and Chet Davis. Outlaw Crazy Burt Kelly decides he needs a hostage in order to make his escape to Mexico unmolested, so he orders the kidnapping of a local rancher's daughter Jessica Cobb. This raises the prices on all the heads of the gang, drawing the attention of the unscrupulous bounty hunter, Django. Crazy Burt, fearing Sartana, the local protector of the townspeople, will be after him, decides to eliminate this obstacle by bringing the bounty killer and the towns protector together with the common objective of eliminating them both.
