As anticipation for the December 25 release of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" builds, check out the full-length original 1966 Spaghetti Western "Django" below.

Tarantino's opening sequence is a true homage to Sergio Corbucci's original, using the same rousing Roberto Fia song and frayed red credits font. The star of "Django," Franco Nero, also makes a clever cameo in "Unchained"; Jamie Foxx tells Nero that -- you guessed it -- "the D is silent" in his name, to which Nero replies: "I know."
