The quirky story borders
on unexpected bursts of sexual violence plus rather substantial helpings
of sleaze. Django (played by Jeff Cameron, pseudonym for Geoffredo Scarciofolo)
is after the notorious bank-robbing Cortez brothers, led by the sexually
violent Ramon. However, a Well Fargo detective named Fulton convinces
Django to "hold off on a showdown" until they can discover the
location of the Cortex gold stash.
Westerns did not contain nude scenes [notable exceptions are STRANGER
AND THE GUNFIGHTER, SCALPS,
WOMAN and EL
CISCO], but Batzella stuck a few in this one (see below pic, left)
despite his producer's complaints. The movie was released uncut for European
audiences, but edited for the wide marketplace including the USA
(this print, however, is the uncut Euro version).
started his career as a character actor. He has appeared in 30+ films,
performing under his Paolo Solvay alias (i.e., playing a police investigator
in both NIGHTS
OF VIOLENCE and BLOODSUCKER
LEADS THE DANCE). As a filmmaker, Luigi Batzella directed a dozen
movies. He often used the Solvay pseudonym but sometimes he signed the
features as Paul Hamus, Dean Jones or Ivan Kathansky [for his controversial
IN HEAT]. He is probably best known for SLAUGHTER
OF THE VAMPIRES and NUDE
FOR SATAN. Mr Batzella died from Parkinson's Disease in November
2008 at age 84.
