After the big success of GBU here in the US the publicity wizards decided wrongly of course to promote Lee van Cleef as "Mr. Ugly"

there was a big build up in the Newspapers and even painted with stencils on the street pavement that "Mr. Ugly was comming to town".

here is the newspaper copy from August 20th 1968 New York Daily News:

They also played this up for other films not connected with GBU in any way "The Bounty Killers" starring Tomas Milian was released here as "The Ugly Ones" 

another NY Daily News clip:

"When you feel that rope tighten on your neck you can feel the devil bite your ass"!
