The first film which tries to cash in on the success of Corbucci's classic by using the name in the title, while it's hero is actually named Glen Garvin and only frequently also called Django. The story is not too original, but it's here better developed than in most of the similar constructed SWs. Saxon is charismatic in the lead, but is topped by Ida Galli and Fernando Sancho, who gives us a wonderful sidekick in one of his few roles as a good guy. De Martino's enthusiastic directing with his delicious framing and staging of the scenes makes Django Shoots First probably the best directed SW of 66 behind GBU and Django.

Synopsis

Django (Saxson) recovers his father's dead body from a bounty hunter, whom he has dispatched, and instead of burying him, decides to collect the reward himself. On his arrival in town, however, he learns that his father wasn't a criminal, but a businessman, framed by his former partner, compelling him to stay and avenge his father and try to claim his rightful inheritance.

Comment

The first film which tries to cash in on the success of Corbucci's classic by using the name in the title, while it's hero is actually named Glen Garvin and only frequently also called Django. The story is not too original, but it's here better developed than in most of the similar constructed SWs. Saxon is charismatic in the lead, but is topped by Ida Galli and Fernando Sancho, who gives us a wonderful sidekick in one of his few roles as a good guy. De Martino's enthusiastic directing with his delicious framing and staging of the scenes makes Django Shoots First probably the best directed SW of 66 behind GBU and Django.
