Django Defies Sartana [Django sfida Sartana] ** (1970, Tony Kendall, George Ardisson) – Classic Movie Review 4936

Tony Kendall takes over as Django battling Sartana (George Ardisson) in writer-director Pasquale Squitieri’s gutsy but routine 1970 spaghetti Western.

Django thinks Sartana has caused the death of his brother in a bank robbery, but it turns out both the brother and Sartana were not involved, and the two men set out to find the real baddies. Cue more blood and bullets in another film in the Django series of Italian Westerns.

It is predictable fare, maybe, but it is made with just enough stylish operatic fervour to be a favourite especially with southern Italian audiences – and years later Western fans outside Italy too.

Also in the cast are Malisa Longo, José Jaspe, José Torres, Federico Boido, Bernard Farber, Fulvio Mingozzi and John Alvar.

It is shot by Eugenio Bentivoglio, produced by Roberto Bessi and scored by Piero Umiliani.

Director Pasquale Squitieri was billed as William Redford.
