Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, when 'Joe' is helping himself from the well, the angle to the sun varies from the left side to almost vertically. (00:03:00)
A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: Sergio Leone
Starring: Clint Eastwood, Gian Maria Volonte, Marianne Koch, Wolfgang Lukschy
Joe escapes from San Miguel and slowly recovers from his injuries. He returns, wearing a boilerplate hidden under his poncho, and taunts Ramon, who repeatedly shoots him but can't kill him. When Joe walks close enough, he kills Ramon's bodyguards, shoots the rifle out of Ramon's hands, and then removes his armor and drops his revolver. "When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true." They pick of their weapons at the same time, but Joe loads his revolver faster, and kills Ramon.
Joe: When a man with .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.
Trivia: The boots Clint Eastwood wears in this film are the same ones he wore in "Rawhide".
