What about Faccia a Faccia? Surely deserves a mention.

yet 2 see any sollima but i cant imagine theyre much better than Great Silence and much worse than Django.

Sorry Django fans but i really dont see the fascination with this film. Great Silence is far better.

I totally agree.  Django is way overated and not even n the same class as The Great Silence.  I have yet to see the Big Gundown but after the Leone westerns The Great Silence is the best of the rest.  Django's opening draging the coffin is cool but the movie quickly goes down hill from there.

I think some of the critical confusion results from who the films were made for. Django resonated more with its Italian audiences and European audiences, a film made for their consumption, Leone's films broke out internationally and more importantly eclisped the genre here in the home of the western in North America.

I believe I've read that Django made more dinero in Italy than any of Leone's films.

I had this great idea for a theory on SW's. That the ones that we Norte Americanos liked were the ones that had at least all or some of their main characters speaking english and the rest even though dubbed wouldn't really be that noticeable and accepted. The other major criteria would be a good story, Morricone score, and good production values.

Those that were entierly dubbed would be less accepted.

This would be true for all Leone westerns, Great Silence had Frank Wolf, Big Gundown & Death Rides a Horse Sabatta - Van Cleef, Keoma - Woody Strode.

What do you guys think? And see if this theory holds true for the Spaghetti's that star your native actors.

... and what about Scandinavians? Since we are used to subtitles instead of dubbing of foreign films (that's what they do in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland, etc.) it's very hard for us to watch anything that's not "original" versions of films (soundwise). It has to be done very well, and to this day, it is still the thing that bothers me the most about Leones films. And many other Italian films, by the way.

Thanks to Blue Underground, we can all watch Django with its original italian audio. Franco Neros voice has always annoyed me in the dubbed version. It doesn't sound like him at all. Since there aren't any english speaking actors, there is no need to see this film dubbed. I really like the film though. The town is so filthy and dirty, quite unlike any other western town. In fact, everything about the film is filthy and dirty...and hilarious.

I checked out Django on Amazon UK...it says it is unrated and region 0 what does this mean...will it work on my region 2 DVD player. I saw both Django and Django Kill if you live shoot on filmfour and thought they were great.
