The way he pops up after shot at the Cattle Corner Station is supernatural.

"Pops up"?  He staggers to his feet and has to put his arm in a sling.  It's not like he gets shot and then just springs to his feet.

  Ok, wrong choice of words.  But the way the scene develops with the camera focusing on his eyes and the way Harmonica looks around.  Granted, he'd probably be somewhat confused after being shot and knocked out, but for me there's always been a very surreal feel to that scene.

Plus, the way Harmonica just slides into every scene ( almost out of thin air ) is very supernatural. He has a very unearthly presence in the film, almost as if he had control over his surrounding environment and the outcome of events.

kurugan, good point. maybe he held the match at arms length.
or  he could have lit it and stuck on a tree branch and the buckshot made it fall.

Well theres 3 things that i have to disagree on.

1.its KurugEn no a   ;D

2.There is no way that he held it arms legth because she would have probably shot his hands off

3.There is no tree in the middle of the little area that he was standing

Regarding the match, it's very simple.

Jill was a bad shot.  Harmonica dropped the lit match after she shot and walked away.  No harm done.  No one hit.  No mystery.  No ghost.

I like the idea advanced that it was one of Frank's men, and Harmonica warned her before anything could happen.

You dont really have to be a great shot when it comes to a shotgun.If you watch the scene it really looks like she hit where the match was lit.Also who said he was a ghost?  ???

It depends on the shotgun bullet. Some are buckshot ( small bullets that spread out when fired ), some are just a very large caliber bullet.

Shot, can run from very small bird shot (about the size of sesame seeds), to 00 buckshot, the large caliber bullet that Peacmaker mentioned is called a slug.

McBain was hunting turkeys with the shotgun earlier in the film.  Draw your own conclusions from that. . .  ::)

Are you likely to kill a man with that, CJ, if you were of a mind to?
