Texas Adios (1966)

Franco Nero may play Texas sheriff Burt Sullivan in this movie, but that didn’t stop it from being called Django 2 in some countries. Then again, there are so many Django movies that don’t have Nero in them and have absolutely nothing to do with that movie.

Shot in the Spanish province of Almería at exactly the same time Sergio Leone was making The Good, The Bad and The UglyTexas Adios finds Nero’s sheriff heading across the border with his younger brother Jim (Alberto Dell’Acqua) to get revenge against the man who killed their father, Cisco (José Suárez). The twist is that Cisco ends up being Jim’s real father.

Directed by Ferdinando Baldi, who would go on to make much better movies like Comin’ at Ya!Treasure of the Four CrownsGet Mean and two Mark Gregory movies, Just a Damn Solder and Tan Zan Ultimate Mission. In fact, he also made a Django movie, Django, Prepare a Coffin, which originally was going to star Nero and ended up having Terence Hill play the lead.

Baldi wrote the story for this with the script written by Django writer Franco Rossetti.

It’s not the best western. It’s not even the best Franco Nero western. But at least there’s a great bar room brawl.
