I was literally discussing The Good the Bad & the Ugly with someone yesterday, talking about how Eli Wallach was still alive.

This is so weird.

He had a very cool cameo in Mystic River.

...wanted in fifteen counties of this state, the condemned standing before us... sitting before us... Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez has been found guilty by the third district circuit court of the following crimes: Murder, assaulting a justice of the peace, raping a virgin of the white race, statuatory rape of a minor of the black race... derailing a train in order to rob the passengers, bank robbery, highway robbery, robbing an unknown number of Post  Offices, breaking out of the state prison, using marked cards and loaded dice, promoting prostitution, blackmail, intention of selling fugitive slaves, and counterfeiting. Crimes against  places of high authority include burning down the courthouse and sheriff's office in Sonora. The accused is also guilty of cattle rustling, horse thievery, supplying Indians with firearms... misrepresenting himself as a Mexican General, unlawfully drawing salarly and living allowances from the Union Army. For all these crimes the accused has made a full and spontaneous confession. Therefore we condemn him to be hung by the neck until dead... may the lord have mercy on his soul... proceed."

Gave iconic performances in some of the most iconic movies ever made.

He was great in "The Misfits" too. A film best known for being Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe's last, but a great film in its own right.

aa-AA-aa-AA-aaaaaaaaaaah!

And just like in "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" Clint Eastwood is the last man standing.


Technically, Tuco was the last man standing.  Blondie was sitting on a horse. Angel eyes was lying dead in a grave.

Always liked this scene...I'm sure it inspired the equivalent scene in The Terminator (although the idea of assembling a working revolver from the pieces/parts of different makes and manufacturers is completely bogus).

I always loved that exchange in GBU. it brought humanity to Tuco.

Yup.  Wallach's character was human, unlike Eastwood and Van Cleef's characters which were robotic killing machines.  Years ago a reviewer said of Wallach's character in GBU, "The Ugly is ugly because he's the most human."


Van cleef is cold blooded for sure. Eastwood on the other hand...other than self defense when does he actually kill anyone for spite or profit on screen? He even gives Tuco his half of the gold in the end even if he farks with him first.

Unforgiven on the other hand...

The bridge scene has one of the few explosions (also see Tremors 2) where the bridge/building/etc. was actually blown up, not just a billowing gas fire effect or CGI.  At about 0:27 a rock almost kills Clint Eastwood:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q951qv7EbKs

Most of the gun stuff you see in Westerns is bogus.  Check this scene from the GBU.  Lee Van Cleef has a belt full of center fire pistol cartridges, but the Remington he's got in the holster has percussion cylinder.....you can clearly see the capped nipples.   Oh, Van Cleef really was missing part of his middle finger.

"You want to know who you are? Huh? You want to know who's son you are? You don't, I do, everybody does... you're the son of a thousand fathers, all bastards like you. "

"You never had a rope around your neck. Well, I'm going to tell you something. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your ass."

 "You became a priest because you were too much of a coward to do what I do."

"I get dressed, I kill him and be right back."

I always like this line:

Tuco: [tied up and laying on the porch of the sheriff's office, after being dumped there by Blondie as he walks in to collect his bounty money... then, the sheriff walk out] Who the hell is that? One bastard goes in, another comes out!

I love those movies. The first time I saw them were first runs in a drive-in.

You have to include the first part:

Van Cleef's missing fingertip is also noticable in For A Few Dollars More when he grabbed for his pocketwatch during the final duel.

According to interviews, he accidentally sawed it off while making a dollhouse for one of his kids.
