1  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: Tuco's Gun on: November 05, 2005, 10:59:27 AM
Tuco in the last gun fight The Contest had only one bullet, he probably wouldn''t have felt it.  In the scene after him and blondie shoot those five guys in the street.  Tuco reloads and he has only one bullet and never do we see him reload again.  He reloads right before he is going to kill Angel Eyes.  That''s why he is freaking out so bad during The Contest at the end, he knows he only has one bullet.  He knows he can shoot Angel Eyes, but he doesn''t know if Blondie is going to shoot him.  And I think that is why he keeps firing at Angel Eyes and not at Blondie, because if he knew he one more bullet he might have turned the gun on Angel Eyes, because why would he keep firing at a man that had already been killed. He doesn''t point the gun at Blondie because he knows Blondie would have killed him then.   He then checks the chamber.  He thought that one bullet was in a different chamber. 
  I might be crazy here, I think this was Leone''s intention but he didnt make that part of Tuco loading his gun accentuated enough for the audience to see it unless they just caught it by acccident.
  If anybody has any thoughts on this write back. 

Tuco is clearly seen reloading his gun during the battle at the bridge, in the same scene where clint says "never have I seen..."etc.
This concludes that tuco thought his gun was loaded the next day, and that clint has unloaded it while he was asleep in the sandbags.

have any of u also noticed that when harmonica plays his harmonica the three gunmen turn around as if they can hear the tune through the intense nose of the train?

or the fact that they can hear what harmonica says from over a 40 feet distance, even though he talks really low? Cool

sometimes you just have to accept these things in movies. Smiley

I've always wondered why the three men are waiting for harmonica arriving at the train station. If Frank doesnt know who Harmonica is until the end, why would he send three men out to kill him?

help me out here people Undecided

great posts Harmonica. but still, its not that likely that such conversions were widely available as they seem to be in the film (everyone in the movie wears gun belts with cartridge holsters, which did not exist in the early 1860's, if you want to go even more into detail. Cool)

the movie's conversion guns are still cool as hell though, so why bother discussing Wink
