    Okay, i just watched the man with no name trilogy yesterday, exept with the new AWSOME collecters edition TGTBTU, and i realized that in TGTBTU tuco seems to have more screen time than Blondie. I was just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

I get the wrong idea only when it suits me.

He might, but Eli Wallach is a pretty good actor, so I don't mind.  :)

He wouldn't be listed as the headliner but he was IMHO.

Eli Wallach's agent was able to negotiate a special distinction for him in the credits of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. In publicity materials for the film, his name appears at the end of the list of starring actors, but in a box with the words "in the role of Tuco" (following the words "also starring" just before the box). In the onscreen credits, his name comes at the very end of the credited cast members ... "and with Mario Brega ...  and Elia Wallach in the role of Tuco."

I have to agree with Tempest; He really was the grey between the Black and white; which made him a more dimensional character. You could really connect with the Tuco in the film, becuase he did have a range of complexity that Lee Van Cleef or Clint didn't have due to their stiff black and white, bad and good roles. Not to mention Eli had so much energy, he lit up the screen ^_^

Hi Guys:
                 Lets face it, Eli Wallach basically steals the movie and i think Clint would agree. The expressions, the humor and name me anyone else in the history of cinema who would get a laugh when he does the sign of the cross????....haaa...Thats  great acting baby....!!

In my opinion, Tuco did steal the show.  Sure he was suppose to be the Ugly but you actually felt sorry for him and started to like him.  I am always happy at the end that he didn't die.  He turned out to be a very likeable character, a little sweaty looking but likeable.

I agree tuco did steal the show and he did turn out to be a likeable character. But to me Clint still seemed like the main character, but mabey thats just because I'm an Eastwood fan :)

At first I didn't think Tuco was the main character ,but after seeing the movie several times it seems that way to me.
