The woman who kills herself is Col. Mortimer's sister. That is the family resemblance that Manco mentions (although I see no similarity).

The only problem is, that girl looks too young to be his sister. The only explanation is that it's set way in the past, in which case El Indio looks too old (same age as in the rest of the movie).

It may have been cooler if it was his daughter or something, but it certainly is supposed to be his sister.

Clever that the whole plot is summed up in two lines. ("famiy resemblane", and "brother and sister".).

Well done, Leone!

I think Manco's saying: "Hey old dude -- gimme my gun back! Showoff..."

They are either generic bearded people, or ... ZZ Top!


Long live the Internet!  :)

A shootout between Mortimer and Sentenza would have required some fancy camera effects, stand-ins and editing tricks!

Still, at least I'm not crazy.

It's just I hate in in films where the characters know everything.

Geeky example: In Star Wars, Luke does not introduce himself by name, but Han still calls him Luke...

It makes more sense to ignore the "five-to-one" line.

As for recognising the sound of someone's gun, I'd say that would be very difficult, seeing as so many people could use the same make.

In this instance, I think it's a case of dramatic necessity over logic.

The audience just needs to know that Blondie has been alerted to Tuco's presence. Knowing the tune of his gun is just another one of Blondies near supernatural abilities (perfect shot, cat-like reflexes, etc.), and is the easiest way to have him leave the bombed-out building.

It's probably a device to get Blondie to team up with Tuco again, and not necessarily something that could happen in real life. Alittle bit of movie coincidence, that's all.

Just wondering. In Betterville, Tuco remarks:

"Hey, Blondie. Isn't that Angel Eyes?"
How does he know him? In the cabin, they act as if they were almost old friends?

Is this a piece of back-story, or am I just stupid?


I thought I saw everything in these movies.

I can't believe I've never noticed any holes until now.

Well done!

I think he's called Blondie not because he's actually blonde, but because he has lighter hair and skin that many of the other characters he comes across.

It could be just some sort of a joke, or another name for a white person, or just a silly nickname.

Maybe Leone thought that Eastwood was blonde?

Who knows?
