However, Angel Eyes finds out while looking for the man and tells the man who hired him what he found out. But he kills him so he can get the gold himself. The other two men are Tuco and a guy he calls Blondie. Tuco is a bandit. Blondie captures him and turns him in for the reward. But when Tuco is about to be hung, Blondie saves him and they go off and do it somewhere else. After their latest attempt, Bloncie tells Tuco they've taken it as far as they can. He leaves Tuco and doesn't give him his share. Tuco tracks him down and makes walk across the desert. Later they come across a stagecoach filled with men who are dead wearing Confederate uniforms, Tuco finds a man dying who just happens to be the man Angel Eyes is looking for.

Revealing Mistakes
The dummy used for Corporal Wallace scene as he is dragged under the train, doesn't match his size in width and height.

Revealing Mistakes
In the scene where Tuco (Ugly) runs up to the carriage filled with dead bodies, he opens the gate to the carriage and looks in. It can clearly be seen that the guy lying to the left is clearly blinking, even though everybody in the carriage except Bill Carson is supposed to be dead.

In the scene where Tuco and Blondie are carrying the crate with the explosives on the stretcher, it has turned about 90 degrees between the two shots when the music starts playing.

One of the three bounty hunters that shoots Tuco's horse has a piece of grass in his mouth in that scene just prior to been shot by Blondie, that was not there in the previous frames when he tells Tuco he has a face worth 2000 dollars.
Ennio Morricone's theme music was originally designed in places to mimic the sound of a howling coyote.

Earlier Sergio Leone had Gian Maria Volonte in mind as "The Ugly".

Jack Elam turned down the role of Elam.

The skeleton found by Tuco inside the wrong coffin at Sad Hill cemetery, was actually a real human skeleton. A deceased Spanish actress wrote in her will she wanted to act even after her death.

There is no dialog for the first 10-1/2 minutes of this film.

The actual location of the Sad Hill Cemetery is Carazo near Salas de los Infantes, province of Burgos, Spain. The coordinates are 41.990517, -3.408511.

Although Clint Eastwood is usually top-billed in this film's credits, Eli Wallach occupies most screen-time.

The film was budgeted at an expensive of $1.6 million.
