I read on IMDB that Eli Wallach is blind in his left eye due to a stroke, and thought it was interesting that he wore a patch on his left-eye in TGTBTU [bit of foreshadowing there]. I'm not trying to start up some serious discussion here, and am not trying to make fun of Eli Wallach's blindness, just putting a thought out there.

I noted the same coincidence on Eli's birthday thread.

This might sound a bit Freudian, but maybe it's a metaphorical eye patch for Wallach, symbolising that he will forever be the embodiment of Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez [come to think of it, this will sound pretty good in an essay].
