What do you think of the scene in the barn where Harmonica tears the lace and sleeves from Jill's dress? What are Harmonica's intentions? What are Leone's? Why do you feel the scene was included? Sorry if this has been brought up before.

My theory is to make jill look like she's staying with (ragged) workclothes rather than leaving with her finery.  This would draw the gunmen in for the kill.

On the other hand i might be wrong and Harmonica fancied a bit of rumpy-pumpy until he spied the gunmen out of the corner of his eye.

There's a long thread on this subject - a couple of months back...

Found it.  January 5th was the last entry, but the thread does have some good thoughts, including some stuff about Mother Earth (eh?).  I'm sure if you look through the multitude of topics throughout this site, you will find more than one repeated (or very similar) time and time again.  Like the water, I like my forum fresh and repeating long forgotten topics is no bad thing.
