Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Cheyenne is shaving, while Harmonica and Frank are having their shoot-out, he cuts himself at the sound of the gunshots. When Jill tells him that he is a handsome man the cut is gone. (02:22:25)
Brett McBain and his family are preparing to welcome Brett's wife Jill (Claudia Cardinale) into town when all of a sudden they are killed. A mysterious lone stranger (Charles Bronson) arrives and is looking for the man who killed Jill's family: Frank (Henry Fonda), a merciless gunfighter/assassin, who works for Mr. Morton and his railroad company. A bandit, Cheyenne (Jason Robards), joins forces with this stranger against Frank and at the same time they aid Jill. Why is the stranger after Frank?? What's the connection between them?
Trivia: While Morton's private train plays a key role in the movie, and the train moves several times, the train's engineer and fireman are never shown, nor is any reference ever made to them.
Question: In the scene where Cheyenne visits Jill at the McBain's residence for the first time, he asks her whether she knows something about a man with a harmonica, although the three of them (Cheyenne, Harmonica and Jill) met earlier in the movie when Cheyenne tells Harmonica to "watch those false notes." Why doesn't Cheyenne just ask her for the man whom she probably still remembers from this event?
