Quotes from

Monco: You mind telling me how you got here?
Col. Douglas Mortimer: I just reasoned it out. I figured you'd tell Indio to do just exactly the opposite of what we agreed, and he's suspicious enough to figure out something else. Since El Paso was out of the question, well, here I am!


Fernando: [Points] That's the bank! As soon as I get some money, I'll put it in.
Monco: But you're gonna have to earn it first.


Old Prophet: I don't know him, I don't know him, I don't know him!
Monco: Come on now, you know everybody.
Old Prophet: Don't know anybody anymore! I'm dead! Understand?
[Lifts his head from under the covers]
Old Prophet: Well, there was a time when I knew everybody. That was a long time ago, when all this was prairie. But lately everybody's in a hurry, with your damned good-for-nothing trains!
[Mocks a train's wheels moving]
Old Prophet: Two two two *three*!
[Spits]
Old Prophet: Disgusting!
[Looks back at Monco]
Old Prophet: One day someone from the railroad comes here to see me and he says, 'Prophet, the railway's gonna go right past your house.' 'Ah, is that so?' I said. 'Mm-hm, yup that's right he says, 'All those trains gonna go right past here, and the best thing for you, Prophet, is to sell your land to the company or else we'll buy Baker's. He lives next to your place, and I'll put the tracks there, and that'll make you go crazy. What do you say, will you sell out to our company, Prophet?' "Oh, is that so?' says I.
[Grins and chuckles]
Old Prophet: He was *very* anxious for me to sell out. You know what I told him about the railroad? You know what I told him he could do with his railroad?
[laughs crazily as a train shoots by]
Old Prophet: [after the train passes] You know what my decision about selling was?
Monco: Well, you said no.
Old Prophet: You're right about that! No to him and his damn trains! I wouldn't, no!
Monco: [Finally has had enough] Look, listen to me, you old man! You're supposed to be a prophet, and I didn't come here to listen to you rattle on about trains! I want to find out about this man, it's obvious you don't know anything.
Old Prophet: [Angry] No need to be insulting! If that's all you came here to do, you can clear out of my house fast, before I lose my temper, understand?
[Monco shrugs and gets up to the door]
Old Prophet: *Hey*! Where you going, hm?
Monco: [Turns around and smirks] I guess I better leave before you go and lose your temper!

Facts about

Total kill count: 30. (Two of the kills were heard, but not shown.)
Sergio Leone broke many 1960s Hollywood rules with this film, although he did not know any of them at the time. Among them: showing the shooter and the victim in the same shot, a horse being gunned down, marijuana use, and a rape scene.
The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) calls himself Manco in this film. "Manco" is Spanish for "lame of one hand", "one handed" or "one armed", which is pretty appropriate considering his habit of fighting, drinking, etc with his left hand only. His right hand always remains on his gun underneath his trademark poncho. (The assertion that his name is Monco is baseless, as that Italian word has nothing to do in Spanish-speaking towns of the South West of America.)
