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.
Of the four main cast members, Henry Fonda and Jason Robards are the only ones who don't share a scene or screen time together.
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.
Lionel Stander receives on screen credit in the original U.S. theatre release prints even though his part was completely cut out of this shortened version.
The opening scene is several minutes shorter in the current American print, as, according to Christopher Frayling's biography of Leone, Leone's daughters Rafaella and Francesca appear as girls playing near the station - but in my copy of the VHS, no such girls appear.
