Trivia
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.

Goofs
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.

After Monco's cigar is shot to a very short length by one of Indio's gang, subsequent shots have it both longer and then shorter again.

Q
What are the differences between the MGM versions and the German DVD?
A
All MGM widescreen releases are slightly censored. They're missing the scene in which Indio stops the beating of Monco and Mortimer. This scene can be found on the German DVD by Paramount. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
Q
Do I need to watch these films in order?
A
Those who have seen all three movies say that it's not important to watch them in order, considering that none of them follow the same story or include the same characters, other than Clint Eastwood. The only other similiarities would include the direction and the music. However, others recommend that they be watched in order to see the progression of Leone's works as the production values got better and better. In historical chronology (based on the weapons used) the film order is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (1862 American Civil War and Colt Navy revolvers), For A Few Dollars More (Colt SAA Peacemakers post 1873 but more likely 1885; Indio's Colt SAA has gutta percha grips, which were in the 1884 Colt catalog), and A Fistful of Dollars (fully automatic machine guns issue from late 1890s and khaki Mexican uniforms from the turn of the century).
Q
Does the Man With No Name actually have a name?
A
In every film he has a different name: in A Fistful of Dollars he is called Joe, in For A Few Dollars More, he is called Monco, and in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly he is named Blondie. Of the three names, Monco is likely his real name, because in Fistful he never says his name; the undertaker just starts calling him Joe, as it's a common name. Blondie is just the nickname Tuco gives him because, once again, he didn't reveal his name. However, in For A Few Dollars More, the sheriff is talking about the bounty hunter named Monco, which is the name he signed in the ledger, so it is likely his true name or at least the name he goes by. On the other hand, 'Monco' actually means 'one-armed', and as The Man With No Name does everything left-handed, this could be either a joke or a pseudonym and not his real name at all.
