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?

It wasn't "movie magic."  Van Cleef was really missing the tip of his finger.  Check out the last three posts in THIS  thread for more details.
