I agree with your "cool" observation Afro

Sorry, I thought there was irony in it. That's because I think that, in a forum like this, mine is a truism, not particularly "cool".

I think Indio and Nino are kin, maybe brothers or cousins. Nino is the only one in the movie Indio won't betray, so a family tie seems likely.

That's right, that's the most possible explanation.

I don't think anyone knew who he was in 1965. Who would remember the second baddie to the left who never spoke in High Noon?

It's funny, I was thinking this while I was watching How The West Was Won... Jimmy Stewart comes up to the cave with the pirate people, and Lee Van Cleef pops off the screen, says something to him, and walks off.  It was cool thinkin' how someone i consider an icon was in this movie in a bit part that no-one would notice.  Everybody starts somewhere.

Van Cleef and Stewart were in Liberty Valance together with another Spaghetti player Woody Strode.  Interstingly, in High Noon (1952) later Spaghetti players Van Cleef and Jack Elam (the drunk let out of jail near the end) made early appearances (Van Cleef plays the harmonica but never speaks).  And Eli was Charlie Gant in HTWWW, interesting, because I think up until then his only western role was in Magnificent Seven.  So Clint got shut out of HTWWW as a beginning TV actor...

You can see how Leone was inspired to cast Eli as Tuco after you see Wallach in HTWWW.

Liberty Valance and High Noon have to be two of the best AW's ever made.

Yup along with The Wild Bunch The Searchers, Red River, Rio Bravo, The Sons of Katie Elder, The Cowboys, The Professionals, Ride The High Country, Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid, Lonesome Dove, and Unforgiven to name a bunch.
