50th Anniversary of “Django’s Cut Rate Corpses”


Today marks the 50th anniversary of the premier of “Anche per Django le carogne hanno un Prezzo” (Django’s Cut Rate Corpses) directed by Paolo Solvay and starring Jeff Cameron. The film tells the story of the Cortez brothers and their gang who rob the bank of Silver City and kidnap Susan Crane in order to obtain information about a gold mine. The bandits take refuge in Mexico where a number of people pursue them; Sheriff Fulton follows the robbers in pursuit of the stolen gold. Django is in pursuit in order to rescue Susan, who is his fiancée and to collect the bounty on the Cortez brothers’ heads. Pickwick is in pursuit because his stolen saddle holds the will of his grandfather leaving him a large ranch. Saloon owner Pedro and his wife Dolores also pursue the bandits. This group of people both help and hinder each other and the capture of the gang. Pedro is killed for his greed while the bandits release Susan hoping this will appease Django. Fulton, Pickwick and Django join forces to meet the Cortez brothers in a final duel to the death.
