I know his real name was Monco, but I have no idea what it means. I didnt think it meant anything. I thought it was just a name.

I read somewhere it meant the ' Monk' (nickname)

Appreciate your point ,but I thought these conversions
came after the civil war.The use of cartridges in the film
I think at this period is a bit of artistic licence.
Wild Bill Hickok was using cap and ball revolvers well
into the 1870's.

The man with no name character was not a concept in the making of the film but picked up by a film reviewer
and became part of the persona.
Also the poncho was introduced in order to make Clint appear broader.

Also if you watch the final scene where Clint comes out the cantina with his saddlebags over his shoulder he
slightly trips up and looks to the camera waiting for a 'cut'
to do it again, but the scene continues.Anybody else notice it Huh?

Firstly I hate to knock any of these films as they are great and still very watchable.
However in the sequence where Blondie re assembles his gun in his room I notice that he uses thumb pressure
to push home the barrel wedge. This wedge normally has to be tapped home with a suitable tool for a tight fit.
Also I think at this time loose powder and ball were used
and not metallic cartridges.

Just read Christopher Fraylings ' Something to do with Death' and it bears out what I have stated above (page 210). Good biography on Sergio Leone
98  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Eastwood hair on: January 06, 2003, 08:52:10 AM
As anyone noticed how well combed and groomed Clint,s hair
is after he has been set free after he has  received a severe beating from Indios
gang.Huh Its a minor point but takes the edge off of the
scene.
