Blondie, Tuco and Angel Eyes have a standoff in the cemetary. Blondie kills Angel Eyes and, with the help of Tuco, finds the gold in an unmarked grave next to the grave of Arch Stanton. Blondie loads half the gold on his horse and leaves the other half for Tuco. He also leaves a noose. Tuco stands on a grave marker while his head hangs in the noose as Blondie and his horse gallop away. Just as it seems Tuco will fall and hang himself, Blondie turns around and shoots the noose, causing Tuco to fall to the ground. Blondie heads off into the sunset, leaving Tuco with half of the gold and his hands tied behind his back, in the middle of nowhere.
