He decided that the character should have a [[GoldTooth silver tooth]], and wear a belt and suspenders, inspired by Leone wearing the same thing. He also improvised most of the scene in the gun shop, and it was his idea for Tuco to growl at a little old lady as he was being hanged.



* MissingEpisode: Lost scenes include Tuco continuing his search for Blondie in a Texican pueblo while Blondie is in a hotel room with a Mexican woman (Silvana Bacci) and Tuco lighting cannons before the Ecstasy of Gold sequence.

** When Tuco is being hanged as a scam, he growls at a little old lady. This was Eli's idea. Leone liked it and told him to do it again so he could be filmed properly.



** Also, Tuco shoving the "Open/Closed" sign in the gun shop owner's mouth was Eli's idea.

* BillingDisplacement: Although Creator/ClintEastwood has top billing, Eli Wallach has the most screen-time.

* StillbornFranchise: Although Creator/SergioLeone never made an official sequel to this film, screenwriter Luciano Vincenzoni wrote a treatment for a sequel, tentatively titled "Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo n. 2". According to Eli Wallach, the film would have followed Tuco pursuing Blondie's grandson for the gold. Creator/ClintEastwood expressed an interest in acting as a narrator for the film; Creator/Joe Dante and Leone were approached to direct and produce the film, respectively. The project was eventually vetoed by Leone, as he did not want the film's title, nor its characters, to be reused.

** Tuco playing with the guns in the gun shop was improvised with permission from Sergio Leone, as Creator/EliWallach had no idea how guns really worked. The exasperated look in the seemingly feeble shop owner's face is real. Couples with HarpoDoesSomethingFunny
