Title: A few discrepancies in the movie
Post by: caius on January 03, 2003, 11:28:06 AM
Just watching the movie tonight with a friend.  A few problems i have found in the movie which bug me.  Firstly where do the three guards go who are walking round the building.  Secondly How does the wall blow up?  They ride to it after it blows up.  And thirdly what do you think Manco does with the bank money?

Yeah, the bank robbery scene was a bit confusing; I'll need to watch it again to follow it.  With regard to the bank money, I like to think that Manco takes it back, but being realistic I can't be so sure.  Mind you, he's already got $27000 bounty, and it might be more in his interest to turn in the money to keep the law off his back, plus he might even have got a reward for his honesty.  I like this about Leone; his deliberate ambiguity allows the viewer to reason things out for himself.

For fairytale's sake i will stick with the idea that he keeps it and buys himself a pig farm.

Didn't the bank offer $10000 to get the money back?

The guards where killed but it was not shown. You can see them laying dead when Manco and Mortimer comes too look at the hole in the bank wall.

When the gang enters El Paso Indio says "The other side" some of the men takes another path, maybe they go and blow up the wall.

Sorry guys but even if we hate to admit it Unforgiven is not the unofficial fourth installment.

i'm assuming the gang blew it up with dynamite. however you do see the bank guard[Dante Maggio] being killed.
