Django, Prepare a Coffin (Italian: Preparati la bara!, “Prepare the Coffin!”), alternatively titled Viva Django, is a 1968 Italian Spaghetti Western film directed by Ferdinando Baldi. The film stars Terence Hill in the title role, which was previously played by Franco Nero in Sergio Corbucci's original 1966 Django. Django, Prepare a Coffin is unique among the plethora of films which capitalized on Corbucci's hit in that it is not only a semi-official, legitimate follow-up, but was also originally meant to star Franco Nero. A piece from the film's score, "Last Man Standing", was sampled in the song "Crazy" by American soul duo Gnarls Barkley. The film's title song, "You'd Better Smile", is performed by Nicola Di Bari. It was shown as part of a retrospective on Spaghetti Western at the 64th Venice International Film Festival.
