I voted for Cheyenne; by the way, I never realized that he was supposed to be Hispanic until I read it in one of the books (can't remember first name, last name Gutierrez or similar).  When I last looked, though, he used a Mexican saddle on his horse.  Lionel Stander did a good job in his bit part.

I never realized he was Hispanic,either.It is said in Porfessor Frayling's book that his whole name is Manuel 'Cheyenne' Gutierrez.

Of course, I also never realized (when I was younger) that the "kid" in the Magnificent Seven (maybe because he was played by Horst Bucholz) was supposed to be Hispanic, from his looks, but Chris does make references to it.  I guess at that age I naively expected all Hispanics to look like Tuco....I guess we all learn.

Much like Tuco, Cheyenne definitely offers the film’s needed comic relief, making for several great moments. Not to mention, he’s one bad-muther, as is Tuco.

Nevertheless, I would have to say Harmonica is my favorite. I favor him due to his incorruptible self. Money, status, land, a woman cannot buy his soul. That isn’t to say he would like those things…but Harmonica is driven by revenge (to rid the world of Frank). There is also an intensity to Harmonica that none of the other characters have. Think about it, the only name (Harmonica) by which he is identified is intimately linked to his brother’s killer. Talk about a torturous life but I think the Harmonica is what continually kept him focused on his mission-avenge his brother’s death and in someway deal with the guilt of not being strong enough to hold his brother up...

Harmonica is pretty cool!

Yeah, the "kid" has hispanic origins, whithout any doubt, and also indian origins.

It must be someone from the old Texas or California.

Cheyenne gets my vote. He's one of my favourite charachters in Leone's films. I don't think he's a picaresque one like, for example, Tuco and Miranda although he's a tough outlaw... he's very keen, also clever and... in love with Jill (I can understand him! Wink)

So this is my childish comment: if I were an outlaw in the wild west, I would have been just like Cheyenne  Lips Sealed

Bye and bye

Of the minor characters I kind of liked the very uncouth Lionel Stander, He really "appreciated" his first view of beautiful Jill. If you let your libido run wild you'd see where he was comming from.  Grin

well, "the kid" was a farmer - so i was thinking he was supposed to be a hispanic farmer. i didn't see any reason for a foreign farmer to come to poor Mexico showed in the movie.

The interesting thing is that Eli Wallach, without being hispanic, looks perfectly like one.

  I'm kinda surprised that I'm only one who voted for Jill . . . I love all the male characters, don't get me wrong, but I have no favorite.  If I HAD to pick of them, it would be Frank, but I like Jill for obvious reasons, considering I'm a male.  Kiss  I do admire her character (and Cardinale's a great actress, something confirmed after my viewing of "The Leopard"), but . . . oh, I've put myself in an uncomfortable position.  I'll shut up.  Embarrassed
