Sergio on trial for COMPANEROS
Sergio Corbucci: I had to go through an obscenity trial because of the film VAMOS A MATAR COMPANEROS. For the first time, I had the protagonist - played by Tomas Milian, who did his own dubbing - speak the vulgar vernacular, with a few coarse picturesque phrases like "up your ass"; "shithead"; "I've gotta piss". It seemed only proper to be so improper, because the character was vulgar, and it would have seemed ridiculous to have him say "I have to tinkle" or "go to blazes". And so I got busted for obscenity, and the film was held up for a spell.
