I have read in an italian book that John Wayne saw Django. I'd like to know the source of this info and whether anything is known about Duke's reactions (really, I'd payed money I don't have to sit side by side with him during the projection).

In the special features of the "Texas Adios" dvd from Anchor Bay Nero says that John Wayne (in person) gave him tips on how to be a good movie cowboy.

I don't see how or when this happened exactly but why would Nero lie about it?

Yeah, Nero talks about John Wayne's comment about two faces of a cowboy, one with a hat and the other without it.

Yeah, but did he give them to him before, after or without having seen Django?

Wayne hated Leone's films so I doubt he would've bothered to see Django. And if he did, I'm sure his opinion of it wasn't that good.  Roll Eyes

Wayne might've looked down on the SWs, but I don't think he would've done that to Franco Nero.

My guess would be it was after he saw "Django" (which would be a reason as to why they met).

Remember that Nero was hanging around USA at that time, with the Camelot crap and such. Still I think there must have been a source for this and, attached to it, I presume, even Wayne's opinion. I'll try to unearth it.

Your sources, please. And which were the ones he saw? I'm sure he must have seen OUTW, as it starred Fonda. It would be interesting to know if he expressed opinions about that and if he shared them with Fonda.

Ah you hit the nail on the head (i think).

He had a screening of "Django" to the "Camelot" cast and crew here in America. Perhaps Wayne was among the lot for some reason?
