The man with no name is back.
At the end of the film, the position of the arms & legs of the corpses in the back of the wagon changes between shots.

When Monco shoots Groggy in the head, the exit wound is in the center of his skull in the crown area. However when he flips Groggy's dead body over, the bullet hole on his forehead is off center.

When Indio is lying on the ground after being shot dead by Col. Mortimer, Indio's left hand (still holding the gold watch and chain) is turned palm down, with his left thumb pointing towards his body. In the next shot where Col. Mortimer retrieves the watch from Indio, Indio's left hand is now turned with his palm up and his left thumb is pointed away from his body.

Revealing Mistakes
When Cavanaugh is shot by Monco when trying to get his gun, Monco's gun is very clearly pointed at the floor in front of Cavanaugh, and not at him.

Revealing Mistakes
When Mortimer's sister shoots herself in bed, the bullet hole is clearly one that had dried out and not a fresh one as blood would be spilling out the hole.

Revealing Mistakes
When Col. Mortimer pours the acid into the drilled holes in the safe, he tilts the dropper more than 90 degrees each time. If it were real acid this would've caused the rubber bulb at the end to be quickly eaten away, giving him chemical burns in the process.

Revealing Mistakes
While breaking Indio out of jail, one of the bandits shoots a prison guard, who clearly reacts to the bullet before he is shot.

Revealing Mistakes
During the opening credits, the smoke from the rifle comes well before the shot.

At the end when Monco is loading bodies into the wagon and drives away, a tailgate is clearly visible hanging down on the back of the wagon. A minute later after he gets the saddlebags of cash, as he pulls away the tailgate is gone.

Near the film's conclusion as the two main characters exchange farewells in separate frames, Mortimer's close-ups and long shots show him against a setting sun. However, Monco's scenes, as the short shadows around him demonstrate, is in light that is much closer to noon.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Monco confronts Red Cavanaugh, he shoots the three men who try to save Cavanaugh. After Monco shoots them, one of Cavanaugh's henchmen fires his pistol, but no sound can be heard.

When Monco shoots three of Indio's men outside of Santa Cruz, he takes his dark brown horse. However, in all his scenes in Santa Cruz, he is seen with a completely different horse. After he leaves Santa Cruz, his horse is dark brown again.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Indio is being busted out of prison and waits outside the black door, we hear "Rodriguez, senior." However, his mouth was not moving at all during that line.

When Mortimer unrolls the wanted poster before sliding under the door, it is obvious that the poster has a curled-up appearance. Once it's under the door inside the wanted man's room it is suddenly completely flat.

After Colonel Mortimer pulls the emergency cord aboard the train, the locomotive crew is seen applying the brakes. There's a shot from inside the locomotive cab backwards across the tender, and there are no cars connected to the engine.

When Mortimer slides the wanted poster under the door and knocks, the bad guy fires four times through the door. When the chase continues into the street, the bad guy fires six more times. However, he is carrying only one gun, which he did not have time to reload.

When Mortimer is trying to kill the man at the beginning of the film, he should be tracking his gun from right to left, not the other way around.

When Colonel Mortimer first exits the train and speaks to the officer, alternate shots show his hand either on his hip or grasping his lapel.

The orientation of the match that Mortimer lights on Wild's hump.

In the end of the movie, just before the duel, we see El Indio reloading his gun. He uses all the cartridges in the lower left side of this ammo belt. However, when he goes out to the street, 4 cartridges appear again.

Crew/Equipment Visible
During Monco's and the Colonel's final conversation, a crew member can be seen over Monco's right shoulder in two shots.

Errors in Geography
There are no cacti visible. Cacti are found only in North and South America, making it obvious that this was filmed in the Old World; in this case, Spain.

Factual Mistake
In both dream scenes, Mortimer's brother-in-law was shot three times at close range. There are no bullet holes front and back or in the wall behind him.

Manco uses karate chops in his fight against Red Cavanaugh. A form of fighting a cowboy in the 1800s would not have known anything about.

Revealing Mistakes
During the opening credits, the rider goes down just as the rifle is fired.

Revealing Mistakes
After Monco rides into Agua Caliente, he shoots some apples off a tree for a little boy. Obvious film splices between shots.

Revealing Mistakes
When Mortimer is browsing in the local newspaper all pages are identical.

Revealing Mistakes
When Manco rides into Agua Caliente, several women run down the street into their houses. They are followed shortly by another woman, but the door to her "house" doesn't open. She simply tries to hide from the camera behind a short wall.

Revealing Mistakes
Although much care was taken to disguise the locomotive as an "American" type, the European buffers are still visible on the front pilot.
Final film of Joseph Egger.

The title of the film reportedly originated out of spite towards Jolly Films, the producers of A Fistful of Dollars (1964), with whom Sergio Leone had a bitter falling out.

Gian Maria Volonté played two different roles in this movie and its sequel A Fistful of Dollars (1964) (A Fistful of Dollars). In the original, he played Ramon Rojo and in this movie he played El Indio.

Sergio Leone also considered Robert Ryan for the role of Col. Mortimer, being a fan of his performance in The Naked Spur (1953).

Mario Brega appears in all 3 of the Dollars Trilogy movies, and in all 3 movies, his character meets an unfortunate demise. In this movie, his character of Nino is stabbed in the back by a fellow member of Indio's gang.

Total kill count: 30. (Two of the kills were heard, but not shown.)

Lee Van Cleef claimed to be faster on the draw than Clint Eastwood. He took three frames of film (one eighth of a second) to draw, cock and fire.

"Monco" is officially not the same character as "Joe" in A Fistful of Dollars (1964). This was the finding of an Italian court that adjudicated the lawsuit brought by Jolly Films, producer of "A Fistful of Dollars". After the release of the first film, director Sergio Leone had a falling out with the producers and made this sequel with a different producer, Alberto Grimaldi. Jolly Films sued, claiming ownership of the "Joe" character, but lost when the court decided that the western gunfighter's persona, characterized by the costume and mannerisms, belonged to the public domain's folklore.

Sergio Leone broke many 1960s Hollywood rules with this film, although he did not know any of them at the time. Among them: showing the shooter and the victim in the same shot, a horse being gunned down, marijuana use, and a rape scene.

The town of El Paso, designed by Carlo Simi in Almeria, was the biggest set that Sergio Leone was responsible for at the time. It would be re-used the following year for several scenes in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) in which it stood in as several different towns. It's still standing to this day and is called Mini Hollywood.

Although Clint Eastwood's poncho was never washed during the production of the "Dollar" trilogy, it was mended. In the final scene of A Fistful of Dollars (1964), the poncho is pierced by seven bullets from Ramon's Winchester. In the sequel, Eastwood wears the same poncho back-to-front and the mending of the bullet holes is clearly visible in several scenes. The mended area, originally on the left breast, is now worn over the right shoulder blade.

Clint Eastwood's character calls Lee Van Cleef's character "old man", while Van Cleef's character calls Eastwood "boy". In reality there is only a 5 year age difference between the two actors.

The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) calls himself Monco in this film. "Manco" is Spanish for "lame of one hand", "one handed" or "one armed", which is pretty appropriate considering his habit of fighting, drinking, etc with his left hand only. His right hand always remains on his gun underneath his trademark poncho.

Although he did not know any English, Gian Maria Volonté did perform his own voice for the English language version. However, he did need a translator to tell him everything word-for-word.

Sergio Leone wanted Henry Fonda for the role of Col. Mortimer, but Fonda turned it down. Leone next approached Charles Bronson, who wasn't interested, and Lee Marvin, who refused it because he had just signed to make Cat Ballou (1965). It was then that Leone offered the role to Lee Van Cleef, who hadn't worked in films since How the West Was Won (1962), although he had worked fairly steadily in television. Van Cleef thought that Leone only wanted him for a few scenes, and was astounded when he discovered that he was actually to be the co-star.

Director Sergio Leone did not want to make a sequel to A Fistful of Dollars (1964), but it was such a huge hit that Jolly Film--the production company--refused to pay Leone what it owed him from that film unless he made a sequel to it.

Sergio Leone originally wanted Lee Marvin for the role of Douglas Mortimer, but when the actor asked for more money, Leone replaced him with Lee Van Cleef.

During filming, Sergio Leone felt that Gian Maria Volonté was sometimes too theatrical as Indio and would often use many takes as a way of trying to tire the actor out. Volonte became so angry with Leone's methods that he eventually stormed off the set. Unable to get a ride across the desert he returned to resume filming but swore he would never make another western again, which he felt was a tired genre.

Aldo Sambrell's character name "Cochelio" is the English spelling of the Spanish word "cuchillo", which means knife.

The safe that Indio robs with his gang in El Paso contains Confederate dollar notes.

Some of the outside shots of the steps in the prison at the beginning of the film were shot at a bull ring in Madrid.

Besides Clint Eastwood of course, actors Mario Brega, Benito Stefanelli, Aldo Sambrell, and Antonio Molino Rojo are the only actors to appear in all 3 of the "Dollars Trilogy" movies.

Despite having a successful acting career for many years, this was Lee Van Cleef's first major role in a movie. He'd starred in a few famous Hollywood westerns prior to this but always played small roles.

Filmed in 1965, but not released in the U.S. until 1967.

When Mortimer disembarks from the train, the La Calahorra castle can be seen in the distance. It is visible just to the left of the locomotive.

On its 1969 re-release it was double-billed with A Fistful of Dollars (1964) (A Fistful of Dollars).
