Hack Patooey: When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.


One of the buds texted me this morning about his passing, and I replied with this very line of dialogue.

/someone recorded the audio from the film on a cassette player when I was in the 6th grade
//listened to that clip with Tuco in the the bathtub taking out the gunman endlessly

It's not a paywall, you can register for free.

Whatever,  you can still get around it by clearing your cookies out,  fark signing up.

Or maybe subby should have submitted a link from a non-paywall site, avoiding the issue altogether. The guy was a well known actor, I'm sure there are other sources out there.


With this I agree,  but maybe subby has never hit the "sign up" wall so he/she didn't know.

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).

lenfromak: Thanks, subby, for pointing me to a paywall. Idiot.

The New York Times is notorious for this.  And, it seems like it's completely random.

:/  Can't really blame subby for being one of the lucky ones not hit with the paywall.

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...

Will have to watch that movie again


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

A method actor and founding member of the Actor's Studio. Damn. I first saw him in GBU, like most people, but I always thought he was talented.

Okay, completely unrelated: best non-Mexican Mexican in a Leone movie? Wallach in GBU? Rod Steiger in Duck, You Sucker? Charlie Bronson in Once Upon a Time in the West? Oh, and not a Leone movie, but honorable mention for John Saxon in Sturges' Joe Kidd.

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.

"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!"

"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!

Mose: jaybeezey: As someone who grew up on GB&U, it saddens my heart.

Funny, it was my first spaghetti western.  And I fell asleep the first time I watched it.  I don't know why, but the second time I watched it, something clicked on in my brain and I was hooked.  I've seen the no name trilogy now probably 30 times since.


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

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.
