Watch: Sergio Corbucci's 'Navajo Joe' In Full, Which Quentin Tarantino Says You Should See Before 'Django Unchained'

"Django Unchained" is coming, and part of the excitement of a new Quentin Tarantino film is digging up and discovering the many movies that have influenced his work. In some ways, his films can be seen as cinephile guides, providing more than ample winks and nods to send fans scurrying to track down the movies that the director himself fell in love with as a budding filmmaker. And certainly, 'Django' won't be lacking in that department, and Tarantino himself will gladly suggest titles for you to find.

"Django Unchained" is coming, and part of the excitement of a new Quentin Tarantino film is digging up and discovering the many movies that have influenced his work. In some ways, his films can be seen as cinephile guides, providing more than ample winks and nods to send fans scurrying to track down the movies that the director himself fell in love with as a budding filmmaker. And certainly, 'Django' won't be lacking in that department, and Tarantino himself will gladly suggest titles for you to find.

Indeed, when a Reddit user ran into the director and asked him to name the one western he should watch before "Django Unchained," Tarantino paused for just a moment before saying, "Najavo Joe." The film is one of four pictures director Sergio Corbucci cranked out in 1966 (including the now legendary "Django") and stars Burt Reynolds as the titular American Indian who seeks vengeance on the men who killed his tribe. Diehard Tarantino heads will know the director lifted some of Ennio Morricone's score for "Kill Bill Vol. 2" (for The Bride's opening speech and duel with Elle Driver, and for Bill's death).

So sit back, relax and watch the whole thing below thanks to the magic of the interwebs. And before that is the video of Tarantino suggesting the film (starts around the 40 second mark).
