Anyone else feel that Tuco went a bit too far to seek revenge against Blondie? I mean, Blondie split the reward money with him and only left him 70 miles in the desert and left it at that. Tuco returns and attempts to kill Blondie several times. What's that all about. Blondie never truely tried to kill Tuco. Had he tried, Tuco would be six feet under and that's no joke. Just things to ponder...hmmmmm  Roll Eyes

Well, Blondie didn't split the cash that one time. He told Tuco, "I'll keep the money...and you can have the rope." Not necessarily an even trade, if you ask me. Wink

But he who double-crosses Tuco and leaves him alive - he knows nothing about Tuco, nothing !!!

I don't think Blondie would have left Tuco 6 feet under, I mean buzzards gotta eat same as worms. Assuming Blondie changes name to Josey Wales 10 years later!

What did he do with all that gold anyway?

70 miles of desert with no water is brutal, Tuco was lucky.

Blondie seemed more annoyed with Tuco than wanting him dead. More than anything, I think Blondie realized Tuco couldn't be trusted...
On the other hand I think Tuco just was pissed at the world. He resented the fact that Blondie was American, Tall, somewhat Handsome, Smarter and Faster than him. Tuco seemed to have the whole world on his shoulders and that's what we love about Tuco...he's a real human being able to play a most dangerous game with demigods (The Good and the Bad).

he bought himself that little place that he talked about in For a few more dollars.

I know many people feel that the movie's have no character continuity but i feel they must do.  After earning all that money in for a few dollars more, he buys himself some decent clothes, that he wears in GBU.  Now he is going to use the $100 000 to buy himself the place he talks about in the previous movie.  Thatís why there wasnít a fourth movie, how boring could you get, Clint farming pigs.  Wait a second, maybe Unforgiven is the fourth one, then again lets hope not.

100,000 would have bought a lot more than a pig farm, lol.

How much exactly was $100 000 worth.  In terms today it was millions wasn't it.

No wonder he gave up his day job of being a bounty hunter.  A fiver for who can guess what he did next with the money.  Would make an intresting movie.  An orphanage in Bulgaria?  A strip joint in Miami, A fish and chip shop in Bournemouth.  NO ... my guess is that he definettly bought the pig farm.  much classier lol

Isn't the internet a wonderful source of information. Maybe Blondie became a victim of hog cholera.

Rather than take up a career in cosmetics, he went back to what he did best, i.e. shooting people.  Wink

http://www.usaha.org/history/chapter5.html

By 1895, hog cholera had spread throughout most of the country where hogs were raised; an Indiana distillery lost 11,000 hogs in the fall of 1896. Disposal of dead hogs had become a problem and they were being smuggled to rendering plants where the lard was used to make soap and axle grease. A brisk trade in hog carcasses had developed.

that will put an end to my soap using days then. Rather be smelly than wash myself with pig lard, especially diseased pig lard

thanx for sticking up for tuco cusser. you're just repeated what tuco  said. but he gave blondie fair warning.  we love tuco but the man is a bandit and thats the bandits code.
still.  it's tuco w/ that parasol. when you want revenge for being left cold 70 miles out  your not going to forget who left you ther during the 70 mile walk back in. the first thing tuco does upon reaching town is douse his face in water. get some whiskey in him and proceed to assemble that bad-ass gun.
he's fixin' to hunt down blondie and ......it's goodby blondie.
desart scens are leone shot were interresting. i couldn't tell the first time when blondie , at this point completely dehydrated and burnt rolls down a dune.  from the camer's view it looks like blondie 's rolling on a flat surface when he's actualy rolling down a hill. this is when tuco knowing blondie isn't long for this world throws a bottle down this hill and hits blondie square in the head w/ a thud. Tongue ouch!
