Django- questions


In some of the scathing reviews (it’s a Tarantino movie- what did you wimps expect?) different people have mentioned the “two years before the civil war” as a historical error, citing that the civil war started in 1861 and Django says 1858. Any information on this? I’m just curious and trust the people on this forum more than whiny journalists.

Another question- I read an article about DiCaprio, specifically the scene Candy is angry and starts questioning the reason Django and Schultz have come to see him, saying that the blood on his hand was a total accident, that it wasn’t written into the script but DiCaprio actually just cut himself on the glass that he smashes with his hand and kept acting. True? (I really hope so…)


The historical inaccuracies were intentionally done as a joke by Tarantino.
