Roman-born screenwriter Sergio Corbucci rose to prominence in 1966 with his cult Spaghetti Western film "Django," a release considered to have set a new standard of violence in the genre. Corbucci is remembered one of Italy's most prolific exploitation directors, creating stylish, hyper-violent films in what is today known as the Euro Western and "poliziotteschi" genres, usually following lone antiheroes seeking retribution for past wrongs, as in "Navajo Joe" (1966), "Ringo and His Golden Pistol" (1966), and "The Cruel Ones" (1967), or left-leaning, proletarian protagonists, as in "The Mercenary" (1968), "The Specialists" (1969), and "Companeros" (1970).
