It's also mainly ironic. They write "The Good" just after he double crosses Tuco.

You never knew that the all-American blond boy is always going to be better than the Mexican? Just ask Donald Trump.

It was originally going to be called "Two Magnificent Rogues" in reference to Blondie and Tuco. The final name came much later on with all the ironic / relative connotations.

And FOD was originally called The Magnificent Stranger  Grin
Leone's movies indeed were magnificent, without needing to piggyback on the success of The Magnificent Seven   Wink

Yeah, but the dumb title remains for the German release.

Sergio Donati personally replied to me in an E-mail that they chose the final title in Italian (Il Buono.....), that it flowed much better that way, and it became GBU for the English version.  And that it better translates better as the Good, the Brutal, the Bad.

How do you say "ugly" in Italian? Like, " Silvana Mangano  looks so ugly with armpit hair"?

Is that due to alliteration in Italian - i.e. buono, brutto rather than buono, cattivo?

Like Frayling quoted someone: In the American Western, the hero has the fastest gun; in the Leone Western, the one with the fastest gun is the hero  Wink
