- “I am standing during the cinema sequence, in the middle, between Brad Pitt and Eli Roth. I was soooo happy. I was like a little boy in his favorite toy store. I was dreaming a beautiful dream. Every single person was great. When Brad Pitt mentions my name. . . I could not hear anything else. I was shocked. Then when Eli Roth said, “Antonio Margheriti,” another Italian director, a wonderful friend and collegue of mine, I was very happy for him too. That evening, after the wrap, I called Margheriti’s son and told him.”
- ―Enzo G. Castellari about his cameo
Enzo G. Castellari (born Enzo Girolami, 29 July 1938) is an Italian film director. He became famous during the 1960s by directing several spaghetti westerns with such titles as Go Kill and Come Back (Vado... l'ammazzo e torno, 1967), One Dollar Too Many (1968), Seven Winchesters for a Massacre (Sette winchester per un massacro, 1967) and Go Kill Everybody and Come Back Alone (Ammazzali tutti e torna solo, 1968).
He also directed two very successful war films: Eagles Over London (La battaglia d'Inghilterra, 1969) and The Inglorious Bastards (Quel maledetto treno blindato, 1978). Quentin Tarantino payed an homage to the latter, by using the film title in his 2009 film, where Enzo himself had a cameo, as a German general, who attends the premiere of the fictional film within a film Stolz der Nation.
