Honestly, who wins out in your opinion as the better Anti-hero/MWNN? My vote is for Harmonica.

Perhaps this is due mostly to Leone's close-ups on Bronson when compared to Eastwood. Bronson just came off as so much more intense in my mind when first watching OUATITW, when compared to first seeing A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few More Dollars, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

What do you think?

Bronson's eyes are so talking. You can see his whole backstory in his eyes... and emotions only here. His face in like a rock but his eyes betray him...  Wink

In Eastwood's eyes I can see only "what do you want, you bad guy, don't you know you are a dead man?" Just compare his eyes with Lee's (like a fox), with Eli's or with GMV's...

The two characters are played out very differently. There's a bit of comedy in regards to the characters of Joe/Monco/and Blondie. Harmonica on the other hand is the more serious character who rarely makes jokes as we see Blondie doing in TGTBATU.

I can't choose between the two. I love both characters. Both have great skills with the gun, hard to pick.

Don`t forget Frank. In his "primetime" he must have been equal to them both.

I had always assumed that Frank in his prime was even faster than the two of them.

Of all of Man of No Name aliases, I like Blondie the best. Nearly every line he says is memerable.

"God is not on our side, he hates idiots also"

"Yeah"

"mhm"

"uhh"

"Never seen so many men wasted"

I can see Blondie and Harmonica having some respect for each other.

Those are my favorites.   Grin

I use those quotes a lot in real life, especially the last one.

Only classic because Eastwood delivered them well.
