PG-13 | | Western
A mysterious stranger with a harmonica joins forces with a notorious desperado to protect a beautiful widow from a ruthless assassin working for the railroad.
The final duel between Frank and Harmonica is shot almost exactly like the one in Robert Aldrich's The Last Sunset (1961) between Rock Hudson and Kirk Douglas, a film, of which, Bernardo Bertolucci was a huge fan.
Cattle Corner Station Agent:
Hey. Hey-hey-hey-hey, if you want any tickets, you'll have to go around, eh, to, eh, the front of, eh, eh... oooh, well, I s'pose it'll be all right. The hell am *I* doin' around here if they walk in and can do as they damn please?
During the final flashback ("Keep your lovin' brother happy") from shot to shot the harmonica changes back and forth from clean and undamaged to dented and dirty.
The film's title does not appear until the end of the final scene.
