* MeanCharacterNiceActor: All three of the stars. On camera, Blondie is cold, distant, intimidating and trusts no one; Angel Eyes is just a complete remorseless psycho; and Tuco is a scheming rascal who would [[FauxAffablyEvil only sweet-talk anyone if it serves his benefit]]. Off camera, Clint is a generous person who helped Eli to survive the perils of a Spaghetti Western, Lee was an utter gentleman who refused to hit Rada Rassimov properly when she asked for it, and Eli was a genuinely warm, personable and friendly man who hated guns and had no use for them.

* RecycledSet: The mud-strewn town where Blondie brings Tuco for his first hanging is the same town from ''Film/{{Django}}'', filming for which had taken place earlier that year. The set, built at the Elios Film Studios in Rome, had not been cleaned between its use in the two films.

* BillingDisplacement: Although Creator/ClintEastwood has top billing, Eli Wallach has the most screen-time.
* CreatorBacklash: Creator/ClintEastwood wasn't happy with the finished movie. He later said it was bloated rather than expansive, and the only fleshed-out character was Tuco.



* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Creator/OrsonWelles warned Creator/SergioLeone not to make this movie on the grounds that Civil War pictures were box-office poison.



* 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.

* 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.
* ThrowItIn:



** 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

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Entire sequences were cut from the film for time. For example, when Tuco would have been blown off his horse by cannonfire, he'd have tried to fire back at Blondie with a nearby cannon, but of course the clumsy bandit keeps misfiring and the cannon starts falling apart.
