The ending of FAFDM always brings a tear to my eye when Mortimer  says "I think it's all for you, you deserve it" then "Maybe next time".


yeah,sad lines

Yeah, those lines along with the music are very touching. This ending is classic, but I like TGTBATU just a bit more. They are both perfect though.

Great hommage to a Western genre. I mean, that moment when col. Mortimer rides of at the sunset.... Classic.

I think its a sunrise and he's heading east, I don't think the gunbattle with Indio's Gang took a whole 12 hr day

Until relatively recently i always considered FAFDM to be the best in the trilogy.The movie seemed to be better paced than GBU,i prefered LVC as Mortimer and Indio was a better villain than Angel Eyes.Also the final duel is more moving than the GBU finale.
   But as with OUATITW i grew to appreciate the pure epicness of GBU and Tuco just grew and grew on me so now maybe i'd put them about level.
   Interestingly(and i'd like to hear Titoli's take on this) i read that in Italy FAFDM was by far the more popular of the two and that GBU was seen as some sort of watered down cop out by Leone Shocked

I am almost positive that FAFDM was more popular at the box office, I don't know about the whole watered down comment.

In Hughes sw book- " the more sentimental moments in the film(Tuco praying to a painting of Christ,Blondy ministering to dying soldiers,Angel Eyes giving a starving Confederate soldier a bottle of whiskey) were a dilution of Leones style and a sell out to the United Artists money men"

  Sell out or not, I like all the scenes you mentioned, banjo.   Grin  Tuco praying to the Christ painting I always interpreted as just another peel off the onion of Tuco.  Angel Eyes giving the soldier the whiskey made him somewhat human and part of the best added scene IMO.  And as for Blondie with ministering for soldiers, his moments with the Union captain and the mortally wounded Confederate soldier are very moving.  Just my thoughts on the subject though.

I agree with Banjo's earlier comment on how El Indio is a far better villain than Angel Eyes.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly a sellout?!?! I DO NOT THINK SO. I would never believe that for a second. It's arguably the greatest movie ever made.

Of the three, I would tie this one with GBU. Just rewatched this one again last night(haven't seen it in years) and Volonte's over the top psycho bandit is right up there with Hannibal Lector. Very close call. But Fistful shouldn't be slighted either. Think it has the best Morricone tracks of the 3.
