Here is a cut and edited out scene I reconstructed.

 In the movie as shown, after Tuco tries to get away from Blondie on horseback, we see Blondie touch off a cannon with his cigar (note: no ram rod in this first shot), after the blast lands, Tuco falls off his horse, gets up looks around and runs away. Next we see Blondie with his head/hat bowed with ram rod in hand and off goes another cannon blast. Tuco now running away (towards camera) dives and rolls as blast hits the ground and end up next to the grave stone.

 In the special edition DVD there is a cut scene of Tuco and a cannon which misfires and falls apart and a black and white still shot showing this. This montage is cut and spiced together as I believe the action happened.

The scene should have been seen like this... after Blondie gets off his first shot, Tuco land on the ground near an intact cannon, he gets up and fires the cannon back at Blondie, however the cannon misfires and falls apart. Blondie seeing this has his head bowed as a reaction to Tuco's cannon blast.  Blondie having already reloaded his cannon, evidenced by the fact that he now has the ram rod in hand, gets off his 2nd shot after his reload, Tuco now turns to get away (also note the smoke around after Tuco's misfire), ends up running towards camera diving and rolling as the blast hits the ground and ends up on the grave stone.  You will note the destroyed cannon as evidenced by the cannon's wheel seen between the trees and also note Blondies cannon firing in the background.  

So in the movie as released in whatever format we never get to see Tuco's cannon retaliation shot in sequence....until now!

That would make a very interesting delima. Further showing Tuco's clumsiness.

Well put together! Note in the last two frames that you can see the small mound on the left where Eros Bacciucchi's special effects team placed a charge/explosives.

Excellent work Sadhill. I wasn't sure until your reconstruction if Tuco fired the Cannon after Blondie's first or second shot. Have you seen the B/W still of Tuco with the ramrod in the Cannon. I had these two stills for many years and it wasn't till the GBU SE came out last year that it all became clear.

No I have not seen that still shot of Tuco w/ ram rod in cannon. If so maybe the scene went like this.. Blondie shoots off his first shot (cannon was found loaded and ready to fire), he misses, Tuco gets up and sees the cannon near him. There is then a race to see who can reload his cannon first to get off the next shot, Tuco with his clumsy and frantic effort attempts to load and fire his cannon first but it misfires, Blondie just takes his time as usual, no panic,  does it right to get off his 2nd shot. This makes more sense as to why Tuco's cannon misfires.

If anyone has that shot please post it!

The Italian poster kinda looks funny. Funny expression on Tuco's part

Is the Tuco in the two frames you mentioned a "stunt man tuco"? It has never looked like Eli wallach to me.

I think the guy who's falling off  the horse is a stunt man tuco.

Maybe the scene was intended to be similar to the "You said when a man with a rifle meets a man with a 45 the...Blah Blah,,,Lets see if its true" scene from FOD.

Perhaps like.."when a man who knows how to load a cannon properly meets a man who doesn't...the man who doesn't is a dead man" ha! ha!
