** His hands were bound with thin twine which he could easily get out of in time, and Angel Eye's gun, and provisions were nearby. Tuco would have no trouble getting out with the gold after Blondie has made good his escape... on Angel Eyes' Arabian horse.

** In case you're worried about him, there's a solid chance he'll be fine. His hands were bound with thin twine which he could easily get out of in time, and Angel Eye's gun, and provisions were nearby. Tuco would have no trouble getting out with the gold after Blondie has made good his escape... on Angel Eyes' Arabian horse.

* FacialDialogue: Used to beautiful effect throughout the film. Particularly in the final shootout, where the audience reads the characters' thought processes while the characters are giving away nothing.



* TheStarscream: One of the first things Angel Eyes does is murder the man who hired him to kill Stevens.

* BMovie: Arguably this in terms of plot, and a beautifully crafted one at that.

Added DiffLines:

* CountryMatters: Intensity-wise, the English equivalent of Tuco's curse towards Blondie as he leaves him in the desert ("¡HIJO DE UNA GRAN PUTA!", mentioned elsewhere on this site to be the single strongest profanity in the Spanish language) would be, roughly speaking, "You son of a cunt!" It's probably for the best that ForeignCussWord came into play here (to put it in perspective, the only other time Tuco deployed it, earlier in the film, was a case of DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment which literally translates to "son of the whore that gave birth to you").


Added DiffLines:

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "¡Hijo de la puta que te parió!", screamed by Tuco when Blondie turns him in for the first time, literally translates to "Son of the whore that gave birth to you!"

''The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'' (Italian: ''Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo'', literally "The Good One, the Ugly One, the Bad One"), released in 1966, is one of the Film/DollarsTrilogy of {{Spaghetti Western}}s that served as a DeconstructorFleet to the entire [[TheWestern Western genre]]. It is the last, and probably the most famous of the trilogy, and is credited with helping to kill the Western genre and inventing a bevy of new tropes (even popularizing the MexicanStandoff). It's had an incredible impact on nearly all films since then, and is generally regarded as one of the greatest films ever created.

* BMovie: Astoundingly, perhaps, the film strictly speaking a B-feature by the 1960s definition of the term. It was made on a fairly thin budget and shot rather hastily, luminaries of the caliber of Creator/OrsonWelles said it would be box office poison due to dealing with the Civil War, and it wasn't terribly widely distributed at first. It went on to become one of the most important films of ''all time''.
