As appreciation for being cast, James Remar gave Quentin Tarantino a 35mm IB Technicolor print of Mandingo (1975). Quentin occasionally screens the print at his repertory theater in Los Angeles, The New Beverly Cinema.

During the filming of one of the dinner scenes, Leonardo DiCaprio had to stop the scene because he was having "a difficult time" using so many racial slurs. Samuel L. Jackson then pulled him aside telling him, "Motherfucker, this is just another Tuesday for us."

Dr. Schultz says the word "Malarkey" in casual conversation in 1858, the word didn't come into use until 1929.

The cotton field where Ellis Brittle falls from his horse after being shot does not contain cotton plants. It is some other plant with lint glued to it.

During an auction, Dr. Schultz calls out, "Sold, American!" But this line wasn't made famous until the 1920s when fast-talking auctioneer 'Speed' Riggs said it at the conclusion of Lucky Strike radio commercials. Also, "American" is in reference to the American Tobacco Company, which wasn't in existence until at least 20 years after the time the film is set in.

Dr. King Schultz: Mister Candie, normally I would say "Auf wiedersehen," but since what "auf wiedersehen" actually means is "'till I see you again", and since I never wish to see you again, to you, sir, I say goodbye!

Stephen: [after Django is recaptured, stripped naked, taken to a barn and chained upside down from the ceiling; Stephen walks in and throws a bag of filthy clothes on the barn floor] You leaving. This here is what you take with you.

A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
What is "phrenology" (the term Candie uses during his monologue about Ben and his skull)?
Phrenology is a pseudoscience that was popular in the 1800s. Its core belief was that an individual's nature could be determined by studying the size, shape and bumps present in his or her skull. Phrenology has long since been dismissed as invalid by the medical community. More info on it can be read here. By the time this story begins, the late 1850s, phrenology had already been dismissed as quackery and had declined considerably in popularity, however Calvin obviously believes it's still legitimate -- it's a good way to show how ignorant and racist the character is.
Who is the villain?
The primary antagonist is plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Candie's servants and family members also act as antagonists and enemies to Django such as Candie's trusted but duplicitous house slave Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson), Mandingo trainer Billy Crash (Walton Goggins), Calvin's Bodyguard; Butch Pooch (James Remar) and Calvin's sister, Lara Lee Candie-Fitzwilly (Laura Cayouette). Other villains include Spencer 'Big Daddy' Bennett (Don Johnson), the Brittle brothers -- Big John (M.C. Gainey), Lil Raj (Cooper Huckabee), and Ellis (Doc Duhame) Brittle, and the Speck Brothers -- Ace (James Remar) and Dicky (James Russo)
