* TakeThat: When Bennie is first seen playing the piano in the Mexico City bar, a fake one-dollar bill on the brick wall directly behind him has a caricature of RichardNixon. Creator/SamPeckinpah inserted it there to show his contempt for Nixon, whose presidency was falling apart.

%%* ShootTheShaggyDog* ShootTheShaggyDog: Bennie arrives with Garcia's head to El Jefe's house after dodging killers and going through some SanitySlippage from the tension [[spoiler:only for El Jefe to decide to pay him nothing -- he killed his own daughter because of the dishonor of having Garcia's child in her womb and pretty much got bored afterwards. When he tells Bennie to dump Garcia's head in the trash on the way out, Bennie totally snaps and kills him... and then gets killed on the way out.]]

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: There are many strange scenes that seemingly doesn't add anythibg to the film. Among them is a scenes where to Mexican hitmen swerve their car through a puddle of mud with trademark Peckinpah slo-mo, and Benny pouring booze on his dick after a night of making love to Elita. At the time, critics used these scenes to dismiss the film as the work of an insane drugged out idiot. Nowadays they are morw likely to be seen as self parody.
