There is not a doubt in my mind that "Django" was is greatest contribution to the genre. It was the most influential and probably the most memorable in his entire collection of spags. Making it his greatest achievement.

"Django" gets my vote.

If you notice I have left out Corbucci's "Johnny Oro",Minnesota Clay(good film), "Yellow the white and the black" and "What am I doing in the middle of the revoltion?".

I consider these to be "lesser" Corbucci films which tend not to be spaghetti westerns at all. So after cutting the fat away I have settled with the seven films in the poll.
If I am missing one that you think should be added please notify me.

Django is like his "Fistful of Dollars", "The Mercenary" is where all the puzzle pieces really fit together.

  For me, it's gotta be The Great Silence.  cigar joe made a good point about the process of making a couple movies.  While several of Corbucci's movies don't have the typical happy ending, TGS goes out farther than any other movie I've seen.  It took guts to make a movie like that, and to do it in such a different setting from most westerns.

  The Mercenary next, followed by Django.  Still waiting to see Hellbenders and Companeros.

Yes but  at the end of the day everybody will remember the man dragging the coffin rather than the man who has a train full of weapons.

  What do you mean "train full of weapons"?  I'm confused, Silence only used his Mauser pistol unless I'm missing some obvious joke here.  In that case, my bad.  :-[

I am sorry Tim. I used the wrong comparison. I used "The Swede"(Franco Nero) from Companeros who brings a train cart full of weapons.

I didnt realize you had not seen it until now.

Agreed you only have to look at the number of "sequels" that it inspired even if the majority of them are meant to be crap.
Hey Firecracker,shall i start a "Do you think What Am I Doing... should be in the vote" poll in revenge for CWC? ;)
Although not as good as The Mercenary and Companeros this is similar in style,and a big budget production filmed in Mexico this time.Its an enjoyable movie but i won't push the point! :)

Very well ;D It is only fair.
But CWC really kicked ass more than you thought it would in your poll.

I have only seen The Great Silence and Django... My vote goes without any doubt for Silence.... That was REALLY sthg more than an average spaghetti... Django was very desapointing for me.. The camerawork is terrible, so are the plot and the dialogues..... That's a shame because this movie had a great potential: I LOVE the idea of this guy going everywhere with a coffin...

The only problem i had with any camera was the blooper where it appeared on film with cameraman behind the saloon bar-i actually find this amusing!
No doubt about it,it takes more than a suspect camera technique to make Django anything less than one of the best!

I really cannot see much difference between how Django was shot and How "Silence" was shot. There is that rather statci camera shot in the beginning of Django when he is dragging the coffin. It would have been nice to make that scene more flashy. But the song propels you through the otherwise interesting premise.
