The watch is magical  Grin and he/she wants revenge, too...  Evil perhaps the ghost of the girl is in?
Poor Indio...

I always thought the same thing while watching this. Wouldn't the chimes stop at the same time everytime? Wouldn't Indio know exactly when they stopped? I mean he played that thing over and over again, not that it mattered as we see in the result.


No it depends on how much you wind the chime spring, are you gnno wind it exactly the same every time, no. Usually there are seperate springs for chime & clock.

Oooh...creepy!  Canadian singer Loreena McKennitt sings a Scottish ballad called "The Bonny Swans" where the ghost of a murdered girl haunts a harp.

"They brought it to her father's hall
and there were the guests assembled all
they laid the harp upon a stone
and straight it began to play alone..."

What a marvellous idea.  The ghost of the girl in this film certainly does seem to haunt Indio and Mortimer and even Manco, by the end.

Indio kills the man; rapes (and kills?
I can't remember; it's been a long time) the
girl, and gets one of the watches. Angel
Eyes already has the other one. Is this
correct?

Was this girl Angel Eyes' sister?
Girlfriend? Wife? Daughter? I can't remember
it ever being established what his relation was
to her, but it had to be deep or else he wouldn't
have spent the entire movie trying to avenger
her death.

Why does Indio get sentimental
every time he hears the watch?
He wished he hadn't killed her?
Seems unlikely given his miscreant
character. This was of course his Achilles' Heel -- his
one shred of humanity,
which, I suppose, had to exist in order for
his weakness to get him killed. But it's hard
to accept that a killer would get so teary
eyed; he had probably killed hundreds of
people. Why was this one so special?

That's a good question. Smiley

Angel Eyes? You meant Mortimer, didn't you? It's true, Angel Eyes has a pocket watch too... (just see The Triello scene), but our theory is that AE and Mortimer were twins.  Evil So AE is the girl's brother, too.

We didn't even know if Indio knew the girl before...

The girl, Mortimers sister kills herself while Indio is raping her. (there is no Angel Eyes in this film)

No, Angel Eyes is in GBU not FAFOD.

No again see above...... the girl is Mortimers sister

Between brother & sister yes.

 Indio is an f-ing nut case, who's had a tremendously traumatic experience that obviously haunts him.

He didn't kill her, see above.
