Monco is a bounty killer chasing El Indio and his gang. During his hunting, he meets Col. Douglas Mortimer, another bounty killer, and they decide to make a partnership, chase the bad guys together and split the reward. During their enterprise, there will be lots of bullets and funny situations. In the end, one of the bounty hunters shows the real intention of his hunting. Written by

Although it is explicitly stated in the movie that Colonel Mortimer is originally from the Carolinas, Lee Van Cleef opted to perform his dialogue using his native New Jersey accent rather than a Southern accent. See more »
The Tucumcari bank manager says that the El Paso bank is the most secure in the state, but Tucumcari is in New Mexico Territory (not even a state when the story takes place) and El Paso is in Texas. See more »

Col. Douglas Mortimer:
Is this part of Tucumcari?
We should pass there in about 3 to 4 minutes.
Col. Douglas Mortimer:
Carpetbagger on Train:
Well, eh, excuse me, but you made a mistake, Reverend. I couldn't help hearing you're going to Tucumcari. I sell goods around here, and I gotta tell you, you're on the wrong train. I think the nearest stop to Tucumcari is Amarillo. By getting off at Santa Fe and returning by way of Amarillo, you should be able to get right where... you're....

This movie is the second best western i have ever seen with The Good,
The Bad, The Ugly being first. I disagree with someone who wrote that
this movie is not as good as A Fistful of Dollars. This movie is way
better than a fistful of dollars. The reason is (as i pointed out in my
other post) is that Clint's role or character is better when he has a
good supporting member because it gives Clint's character more depth as
well as throw a wild card into the mix. Lee van clef is excellent in
his role, i still have him labeled as the bad but it was surprising to
see him play a good guy in this one. Both bounty hunters have their own
styles which meshes really good on the screen. Gian had more depth to
this one which played perfectly into Lee Van Clefs character. In a
fistful of dollars Gian didn't have much depth at all and some of the
characters were annoying. I like how leone tied all of the characters
into each other in this one, having all of their stories somehow play a
role in the other ones. If you haven't seen this movie i suggest you
watch Leone's films in chronological order with A fistful of dollars
first, this one second, and finish it off with the good the bad the
ugly. You'll be glad you did.
