Ok, I'd like to finally get this strait. Blondie is not that Blonde. Tuco even describes him as "tall, blonde and smokes a cigar" so it can't be a nickname. I guess he could be dark dark blonde or light brown but who knows?
really who knows? I need a good explaination if there is one.

A Mexican would definitely consider him blond. Mexicans commonly have black hair, so Blondie’s hair is bright as far as Tuco is concerned.

Ohhhhh. I can understand now why Tuco calls him Blonde but he still describes him Blonde to the hotel owner who would call him brown haired. Not that big a question now though, Thanks!! ;D

I think "biondo" in Italian is means both light or blond, so it may be a translation from the Italian script.

as referred to hair colour in italian it means "blonde". I agree with the observation that a mexican would use the word to stress (playfully)  the racial differences.

Perhaps it's his hair bleached by the sun? A Mexian would definately consider him blonde. Regardless, that part of the movie is one of the best. heck, the WHOLE movie kicks butt!
