The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Easter egg: On the special edition DVD there are 3 easter eggs. Both are on the extras disk (as opposed to the film disk). (1)On the first page of extras, highlight the first (top) extra. Press left and a noose will appear, press enter on it. (2) Again highlight the first extra but this time press right and another noose will appear. Press enter to access another secret. (3) On the second page of extras highlight the top extra and press left OR right. Both will lead you to a noose (same secret on both sides). Press enter to access.

Other mistake: When Blondie and Tuco are talking about telling each other the location of the money, a car drives by in the background. In the shot where both Blondie and Tuco are visible, watch the top right in the trees in between the pillars supporting the bridge.

Tuco: Hurrah! Hurrah for the Confederacy! HURRAH! Down with General Grant! Hurrah for General... What's his name? Lee! LEE! Ha ha. God is with us because he hates the Yanks too. HURRAH!
Man With No Name: God is not on our side because he hates idiots also.

Question: If Tuco seriously thought that The Man with No Name would shoot him, why did Tuco voluntarily stick his head in the noose? Death is death. Why choose hanging over gunshot?

Charles Austin Miller

Chosen answer: Tuco knew he had a better chance at survival (and the gold) by playing along with Blondie and keeping his balance on the cross, hoping Blondie does not miss the rope when he shoots. This final, deadly game was preferable to being shot outright by Blondie and dying a poor man.

Answer: Blondie wasn't trying to kill Tuco. The journey to find the gold was complete, and Blondie did not trust Tuco, so he just hung him, and left his half of the money, and shot the rope, not to kill him, but to leave him there.
