EXT - COUNTRYSIDE - BROILING HOT DAY

As the film's OPENING CREDIT SEQUENCE plays, complete with its own

SPAGHETTI WESTERN THEME SONG, we see SEVEN shirtless and shoeless

BLACK MALE SLAVES connected together with LEG IRONS, being run,

by TWO:
WHITE MALE HILLBILLIES on HORSEBACK.

The location is somewhere in Texas. The Black Men (ROY, BIG SID,

BENJAMIN, DJANGO, PUDGY RALPH, FRANKLYN, and BLUEBERRY) are slaves just

recently purchased at The Greenville Slave Auction in Greenville

Mississippi. The White Hillbillies are two Slave Traders called,

The SPECK BROTHERS (ACE and DICKY).

One of the seven slaves is our hero DJANGO... . he's fourth in the leg

iron line. We may or may not notice a tiny small "r" burned into his

cheek ("r" for runaway), but we can't help but notice his back which

has been SLASHED TO RIBBONS by Bull Whip Beatings.

As the Operatic Opening Theme Song plays, we see a MONTAGE of misery

and pain, as Django and the Other Men are walked through blistering

sun, pounding rain, and moved along by the end of a whip. Bare feet

step on hard rock, and slosh through mud puddles. Leg Irons take the

skin off ankles.

AS The CREDITS play, DJANGO has a SPAGHETTI WESTERN FLASHBACK.

Now Spaghetti Western Flashbacks are never pretty, it's usually the

time in the film when the lead character thinks back to the most

painful memory inflicted on him or his loved ones from evil characters

from his past. In this instance we see Django in a SLAVE PEN at the

Greenville Auction.

DJANGO:

Amongst many other shoulders and heads, sees through the bars of the

cell door, his wife BROOMHILDA being led to the auction block.

He fights his way to the door, and far off and obscure in the distance,

he can see Broomhilda up on the auction block, and in the distance he

hears the Auctioneer yell; "Sold." Then she's taken away to whereabouts

unknown, never to be seen again.

As the sun continues to beat down on Django's head, he remembers;

DJANGO in the SLAVE PEN

with what seems like a one hundred and fifty Slaves in a cell designed

for forty.

WHITE MEN yank him out. of the cell, shirtless, shoeless, and lead him

down a hallway, into a giant round pen, an audience viewing area

circles the round pen floor on three different stories of the

structure.

The ground floor is covered by the BIG MONEY BUYERS who stand in front

of the auction block.

DJANGO:

is moved into a line of SLAVES (The Black Men), and their MASTERS

(their White Owners), and their SELLERS (the White Man actually doing

the sales pitch on the auction block), as they wait for their turn on

the block.

A SLAVE (ROBBIE), stand on the auction block in view of the room full

of Buyers, The SELLER sells, and the OWNERS stand off to the side.

DJANGO:

takes in the environment around him. Django has never cared for white

folks, but these white folks are in particularly ugly.

It's DJANGO's turn ON THE AUCTION BLOCK

as the THEME SONG wails its tragic crescendo, Django is brought up on

the auction block. He.looks down at all the WHITE PEOPLE who want to

buy Niggers, who look up to him.

His heart fills with poison.
