The strange scene for me came immediately following the blowing up of the bridge.  Remember how Tuco lands in the bunker with his "tail in the air?"  Well, his tail is still up there the following day!  What's more, is that the entire armies, both Union and Southern, move out sometime during the night and all that racket caused by the mobility of two great forces does not wake either Tuco nor Blondie.  Moreover, none of the Union soldiers woke up their new fellow compatriots to let them know it was time to move on!  Very strange to me, how they were left behind and unnoticed, being new recruits and all.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Father Ramirez

I just saw the GBU again last night on the Tunrner Classic Movie Channel.  It was in the wide screen format, which was nice.  Anyways, I always find myself a bit touched when Tuco and his brother have their little "fight" in the mission.  I kind of feel sorry for Father Ramirez and have always wondered what he was attempting to do as he called out to Tuco just as Tuco was leaving after their fight.  What do you suppose Father Ramirez would have done if Tuco had acknowledged his voice and turned around?  I always thought that perhaps Father Ramirez would have embraced his brother and asked to come along with him to learn the trade of a bandito.  I can't be sure, but the father's emotions were high and the look in his eyes seemed to be desparate to reconnect with his brother.  Any alternative suggestions to this prediction?



Clint Eastwood Westerns / Angel Eyes handicap?

I was just watching the GBU, when I noticed a small detail I previously missed.  In the final showdown, the close-ups on Angel Eyes' trigger hand reveals that the tip of his middle finger is missing.  Does anyone know if that is truly the case for Lee Van Cleef, or was it simply "movie magic" manufactured to give Angel Eyes less of a shooting edge when going up against Blondie or the bulletless Tuco?  Any comments?
