* Someone made a good if upsetting point. Why did Blondie just ditch Tuco in the desert instead of just letting him hang once he decided that their scam had run its course? Is it his moral code of being The Good, where he doesn't try to kill anyone unless they try to kill him first? Was the heat and Tuco's chatter making him impatient? Or was leaving Tuco out in the desert just a chance he was willing to take?

** Well, there's a morally ambiguous "hero", an extremely unambiguous villain and a third character who isn't much better than the villain but more likeable than either of the others (and who is arguably the main protagonist). So at least it's more complex than BlackAndWhiteMorality.

* What would the Union soldiers do when they find Corporal Wallace and his prisoner missing? Would they go after Bill Carson and not find him? If they knew they were transporting Tuco Ramirez would they acknowledge that he didn't care about the war and wouldn't be a threat to the Union? Or would they get caught up in another battle with the Confederates and forget about the whole thing?

** Well, if you consider the comics to be canon, he decided "ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules", and gave it to Tuco's brother's church because they needed it more than he did.

***He was listening to the cylinder stop, to check how well it would lock up the cylinder when firing, and not end up dropping the hammer between chambers, or slightly out of line with the barrel. Then again, these guns are sometimes anachronistic as they switch between period-correct cap and ball guns (not at all waterproof) and cartridge converted guns (about 5 years or so early), which have some chance to resist water.

** If that was the case, then why would Manco mention that he was looking to retire in ''For A Few Dollars More''?

** Or he could be one of those types of guys who can't live the quiet, easy life; tried it, got restless, ended up riding into the wild again.

** If you accept the (dreadful) prologue scene filmed for the American broadcast of ''A Fistful of Dollars'', then Blondie was arrested at some point; he must have lost his fortune in the process.
