I agree with aussiedave. When Tucco is looking for the right grave - it's the most impressive scene ever. At least for me. The final shooting scene is great as well.

Another great scene, that you cand find in the OUTA movie poster, with the Brooklin bridge on the background.

Noticed that every great Leone scene is ALWAYS followed by a magnificent Morricone score?

My two absolute favourite scenes are in OUTIW.
The first one is the bar scene, where Jill, Cheyenne and Harmonica meet.  The atmosphere, camerawork and music is just perfect.  Not to mention the chemistry between Bronson and Robards...  Pure poetry.

The second one is the duel at the end.  The acting, the look in Fonda's eyes, he knows he's gonna die.  And Harmonica knows he's going to face his trauma again.  Than the circling, the flashback, damn great cameramove matches perfectly with the score, goosebumps all over the place, the shot, Cheyenne cutting himself with the razorblade...
Damn this is good stuff.

Sorry, lost control somewhere along... Grin

I just watched GBU the other night and another great sequence is at the end of the Tuco and Blondie in the desert sequence where they meet Jackson (aka  Bill Carson). Its just hilarious when Tuco realizes that Blondie knows the name on the grave and he must keep him alive, another picaresque comic moment. In a film filled with them.

Just before the words 'The Bad' appears on screen.

When Lee Van Cleef laughs after shooting Baker in the head several times through the pillow. Lee Van Cleef oozes evil.  Amazing contrast with his portrayal of Douglas Mortimer the year before.

Another one, the same scene described by Cigar Joe, but a few minutes before.

Blondie is "tortured" by Tuco in the desert. Tuco takes his gun and is ready to "finish" Blondie, and suddenly, the flashing, beautiful and surprising appearance of that carriage with Carson and the others, with the magnificent music of Morricone (track 5 on the cd, for those who have it, "The Carriage of the spirits").

Enjoy.

in the monastery where Tuco tries to convince Blondie that he (Blondie) is dying and if he were in the same position he would tell Blondie the name on the grave.
Blondie slowly draws Tuco in with his finger. The anticipation of the gold in Tucos' eyes as he bends his head towards Blondies lips, only to have a hot cup of coffee thrown in his face.

That's the title of "Duck you Sucker" in Latin America. It means... Duck you Sucker!!!!

I saw the movie for the first time when I was a kid. Sometimes the movie is also called "Los heroes de Mesa Verde" (The heroes of Mesa Verde)

favorite scene ? the whole movie.  everything flatens me. fineto.   ennio,  clint, eli ,lee, and sergio..... everyone involved.  cinematography responsible for creating that spinning effect  w/ so many graves show how ideas are born & and expounded upon.

I'm inclined to agree with AussieDave that there are alot of very poignant moments in Leone's films and, in particular, TGTBATU.

I agree with every other poster about the scenes they mentioned ie. the Ecstacy of Gold scene with Tuco running through the cemetary, the dying soldier being offered a cigar, Blondie offering a cigar to Tuco, etc..

But for some reason the one that realy gets to me is at the beginning of the Trio scene where Clint has just written the "name" of the person of the grave and he's moved to his place.

Very cautiously Angel Eyes slowly moves by Tuco, the man he had the crap beaten out of earlier and the eye contact between them..it's a very subtle thing, but I like it.

Of course the music starts and one of the great scenes in western history unfolds.

I was very glad that Leone  used the musical watch again as he had in the gunfight scene in FAFDM...great touch..!!

Nuff said. Close topic, we have a winner. Truly one of the greatest scenes ever captured on film, not just western. I have never seen a moment like that in any film, which brought so much to the table. I have watched that scene easily 20 some odd times, and it still has the same magic as when I first saw it. Truly an amazing scene.

The final shootout, so intense.

I also like when Tuco is running through the graveyard. Mainly because Ecstasy of Gold is playing, my favorite song in any film, ever.
