For Three Men The Civil War Wasn't Hell. It Was Practice!

By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever mounted, The Good The Bad And The Ugly is an engrossing actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Clint Eastwood returns as the "Man With No Name," this time teaming with two gunslingers to pursue a cache of $20,000-and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way.

Trivia: Shot in the deserts of Spain with 1,500 Spanish Militiamen as extras. (more)

Goofs: Factual errors: When Tuco is about to be hung the second time (in the town of Valverde), the executioner reads out loud "wanted in 15 counties of this state". However, New Mexico was still a territory in 1862 and did not become a state until 50 years later in 1912. (more)

[first lines]
Stevens: You're... from Baker... Tell Baker that I told him all that I know already. Tell him I want to live in peace, understand? That it's no use to go on tormenting me! I know nothing at all about that case of coins. Now that gold has disappeared, but if he'd listened, we could have avoided this altogether. I went to the Army court; there were no witnesses. They couldn't uncover any more. I can't tell Baker what happened to the money; go back and tell him that!
