Just number your top favorite characters of the film, 1 being the highest of course. : )

1. Indio
2. Mortimer (very close between he and Indio)
3. Wild
4. Hughie
5. Nino

Groggy and Cuchillo could have just as easily been number 5 for me as well.

1) Indio; the ambitious and adventurous, yet slightly troubled gang leader, also moderately crazed by too much locoweed - played by Gian Maria Volonté

2) Col. Douglas Mortimer; the best shooter of both Carolinas, smokes only after he eats - played by Lee Van Cleef

3) Old Prophet; the old prophet who lives near the railroad tracks - played by Joseph Eggert (had to look on IMDb for the name of the character)

4) Wild; Quasimodo of the Old West - played by Klaus Kinski

5) Nino; Indio's right hand and platonic lover, half-Guinean, half, something else - played by Mario Braga

Ahh yes, the Old Prophet was pretty awesome too, especially the trick he does with his chin!

I can only second this list, although Manco is pretty awesome too. But who isn't?  Afro


Platonic lover...  Grin Mario Brega is so good in these bearlike henchman characters. Did he ever play anything else?

1. El Indio
An obvious choice but for my few dollars the best bad guy in ANY film: a deeply complicated character, the watch, the glazed eyes and the deathwish. I still remember seeing this film for the first time 20+ years ago and wondering if i was wrong in the head to feel sorry for a psychotic killer...that's the strength of Volonte's acting
2. Always liked Groggi because he turns up with his own crew, Indio needs more muscle so he looks for a subcontractor.
Like his flash dressing, and the way he gives Indio a bit of stick now and again with his trick shooting and references to jailtime. An obvious second in command who is eyeing the top spot.
3. Colonel Mortimer
for delivering the line "No, the question isn't indiscreet...but the answer could be."
4. Wild
great Kinski performance, hardly any lines but gives it his usual sneering, face twitching performance...always liked the way he counts: "ONE...TWO...THREE...NOW FOUR...AND A FIVE...." Where did they pick him up from??!
5. hmmm, I'll stick Sancho Perez at number 5 just because he gets his bounty up to $5000 on the sly through no work of his own. 

my first post hombres, thought I'd make it a good un!

He was one of the gangsters in Once upon a time in America, although its easy not to recognise him unless you know he's in it.

I think that might have been a rhetoric question.

One of the hitmen sent after Noodles, I believe.

I remember all my life raining down as cold as ice, shadows of a man, a face through a window
Cryin' in the night, the night goes into morning just another day happy people pass my way.
Looking in their eyes, I see a memory, I never realized how happy you made me.
Oh, Mandy, well, you came and you gave without taking, but I sent you away.
Oh, Mandy, will you kiss me and stop me from shaking, and I need you today. Oh, Mandy.
I'm standing on the edge of time, I've walked away when love was mine.
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing, the tears are in my mind and nothin' in rhyming.
Oh, Mandy, well, you came and you gave without taking, but I sent you away.
Oh, Mandy, will you kiss me and stop me from shaking, and I need you today. Oh, Mandy.
Yesterday's a dream, I face the mornin', cryin' on a breeze, the pain is calling.
Oh, Mandy, well, you came and you gave without taking, but I sent you away.
Oh, Mandy, will you kiss me and stop me from shaking, and I need you today.
Oh, Mandy, you came and you gave without taking, but I sent you away.
Oh, Mandy, will you kiss me and stop me from shaking, and I need you...

Well, I'm pleased to see Huey got one vote but my list would be:

  • Indio
  • Mortimer
  • Wild
  • Old Prophet
  • Groggy

Memorable characters, all.
