After the robbery the gang rides to the town of "Agua Caliente". This literally means "hot water" and it is there that the gang finds itself figuratively in hot water. See more »
Throughout the final duel between Mortimer and Indio, the length of their shadows change. Indio appears to be facing the sun but close ups of his face reveal half his face is in shadow, implying he isn't facing the sun. See more »

Col. Douglas Mortimer:
Is this part of Tucumcari?
We should pass there in about 3 to 4 minutes.
Col. Douglas Mortimer:
Carpetbagger on Train:
Well, eh, excuse me, but you made a mistake, Reverend. I couldn't help hearing you're going to Tucumcari. I sell goods around here, and I gotta tell you, you're on the wrong train. I think the nearest stop to Tucumcari is Amarillo. By getting off at Santa Fe and returning by way of Amarillo, you should be able to get right where... you're....

All the wide-screen versions from MGM lack a scene at the end of the scene where Manco and Col. Mortimer are beaten up. There, 20 seconds are missing, where Indio jumps down the wall and orders to stop the beating. He orders to tie them up and his aide asks him, why keep them alive. This cut is contained in all the DVD releases by MGM worldwide, including the newly restored Special Edition. The British Pan&Scan VHS video is uncut, as well as the Italian DVD release (which, however, only contains Italian language audio). The only uncut DVD version with English language track is the German DVD by Paramount. See more »
Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) and Monco (Clint Eastwood) are both bounty hunters. They're both after the bank robber El Indio (Gian Maria Volonté) for his bounty. They decide to join forces to bring El Indio and his gang of robbers down.
Lee Van Cleef makes this a superior spaghetti western. He's not only as good as Clint. In many ways, he plays a superior character. His character has secrets. He has mysteries. Clint is playing a much more simpler character. For me, this is superior to 'A Fistful of Dollars' in the trilogy. The story is more iconic, cleaner. The characters have more depth.
