He was typically good in the often gruff roles he played, of which "...Dynamite" is one of my favorites.

One of my favorite memorable lines from him came in Maverick: "I have two-pair: eights...and eights." Smiley

He'll be missed...

Agreed.  I always felt that Duck You Sucker ( I saw it in the theater) and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid were Coburn's best.  For laughs, I enjoy Waterhole #3.

When someone sees Coburn face just after he takes off the helmet at the beginning of Gił la testa (a.k.a. Duck you sucker - and another 3 or 4 titols...), with Morricone's "qua qua music" - as I call it - well, he never forgets it for the rest of his life. This is my opinion.

I agree.The introduction of Sean is ,I think,Leone,s 2nd best introduction of a character,just behind the first shot of Henry Fonda from the point-of-view of the little boy in Once Upon a Time in the West.

I thought he was strangley(for once!) uncharasmatic in the much too downbeat Pat Garret!
