Might have been his gun. I'll have to check.

EDIT: Yep, Angel Eyes dropped his gun upon being shot and Blondie knocked it into the grave.

See about 5:28-5:30 for the specific action, but AE's gun was definitely visible before that.

This has probably already been discussed but doesn't Angel Eyes' hat change position in the open grave between frames? Something that I have always noticed.

Anyway that whole scene is so well shot and edited. I love the way that Angel Eyes slides into the open grave after Blondie shoots him a second time, and then the way that Blondie re-positions his cigar in his mouth. Tuco also looks pretty pleased too until he realises that Blondie must have emptied his gun.

AMC had the audacity to show GBU twice that last couple of days P&S and shot through with commercials, it a love hate relationship I have for that channel, love it for some of the obscure stuff they occasionally show, it would be nice if somebody would aquire the rights back from them (and the other Leone Films) and present it on TCM exclusively.

You're right.  Seems like TCM should show the MGM films more often.....as part of the MGM catalogue they acquired.  They did show AFOD and FAFDM recently with Colossus Of Rhodes.  They don't seem to show those films as frequently as OUATITW.  I wonder what the broadcast rights are.   Maybe in the leasing arrangements, they agree to showing the films less frequently on their own station.

Would be nice if AMC would take a block of time, or certain broadcasts and show them commercial free.  Not realistic to hope for that ...

I think it was commercial free at the beginning (AMC)

AMC was commercial free until around 2000, but I recall them usually showing movies in pan-scan anyway.

 The odd thing was that AMC showed the extended version pan-n-scan.  It's just not right. Cheesy
