Life, liberty and the pursuit of vengeance.
The title and setting of the film was inspired by the 1960s spaghetti western
Django, with the original Django actor Franco Nero having a small role in the film.
In Calvin Candie's villa, a decorative copy of the Nefertiti Bust can be clearly seen. However, the movie is set in the year 1858, while the Nefertiti Bust wasn't discovered before 1912.
