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 story was concocted between Sergio Leone, Dario Argento, and Bernardo Bertolucci over sessions at Leone's house where they would screen Western classics like The Searchers (1956), The Iron Horse (1924), The Comancheros (1961), and High Noon (1952).
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 Harmonica's confrontation with Frank towards the end of the movie, his hair appears to have grown significantly from earlier in the film; however, when he enters the house to talk to Jill, his hair is short again.
The film's title does not appear until the end of the final scene.
