* VindicatedByHistory: The film is much more recognized now than at the time of its debut.debut: in 1970s it was panned as the weakest Leone (especially in US), nowadays it is generally considered to be at least on par with the others (and some even think it's Leone's best film). The fact that the film was severely cut for US screenings certainly didn't help.

* GeniusBonus: John Mallory's obsession with dynamite becomes much more understandable once you learn of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenian_dynamite_campaign the tactics of radical Irish republicans in 1880s]] (which might have been precisely the years when John was active in Irish underground).

* WhatCouldhaveBeen: Eli Wallach was originally meant to play Juan, but United Artists wanted a bigger name, so they got Rod Steiger. Some foreign dubbing companies caught wind of this during the release of 'Don't Turn the Other Cheek' and had the same foreign actors voice both Steiger's Juan and Wallach's Max.
