In the cemetery scene, when Tuco is digging up Arch Stanton's grave, Blondie walks in and throws a shovel in the pile of earth and tells Tuco to use it because it would be a lot easier. I have always wondered, why did Blondie ask Tuco to dig up Arch Stanton's grave, even though he knew that the money was buried in the grave marked "Unknown"?  I think Blondie knew that Angel Eyes was on their trail and it was only a matter of time he (Angel Eyes) would show up and thus planned out a final standoff well in advance (Unloading Tuco's gun was only part of his final standoff plan). Any other idea?

Not sure if that was the real reason, but it sounds very reasonable to me.

A lot of this movie relies on extraordinary plot convenience. It's not a bad thing but it's best not to take things too literally.

If a work of fiction outlasts its review because it  is immune against 'communicative wear' then the suspicion is aroused that it is art.

That's why we can discuss GBU without putting an end to the mystery.
