Trivia
In 1960's Hollywood was still following the The Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 (a.k.a. The Hays Moral Code), especially when it came to Westerns. After the Good, the Bad and the Ugly was released Hollywood had to change its moral standards in order to stay competitive with such foreign made films. This particular film broke many if not most of those standards.

After the scene where Blondie splashes water in Tuco's face in the infirmary, there is a fade-out to the next scene. This was where the intermission was located, but this fade-out was excised in the 179-minute extended version.

Goofs
When the two armies battle at the bridge, the Confederates are using the flag with the blue criss-cross on the red field. This is not the Confederate national flag, rather it is the banner of Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. It would have been in battles in the east, not in the west.

A majority of the characters load metal cartridges into converted Civil War model revolvers. While this conversion did become commonplace in the late 1860's, back in 1862 metal cartridges hadn't been fully developed for those kinds of revolvers yet and paper cartridges were still the norm.

You can see a car passing by in the background when Tuco is balancing on the cross on the graveyard in the end of the movie.

Q
What are the lyrics to "Story of a Soldier"?
A
Bugles are calling from prairie to shore, Sign up and fall in and march off to war; Drums beating loudly, hearts beating proudly March blue and gray and smile as you go. Smoke hides the valleys and fire paints the plains, Loud roar the cannons till ruin remains; Blue grass and cotton burnt and forgotten All hope seems gone so, soldier, march on to die. Count all the crosses and count all the tears, These are the losses and sad souvenirs; This devastation once was a nation So fall the dice, how high is the price. There in the distance a flag I can see, Scorched and in ribbons but whose can it be; How ends the story, whose is the glory, Ask if we dare our comrades out there who sleep. Count all the crosses and count all the tears, These are the losses and sad souvenirs; This devastation once was a nation So fall the dice, how high is the price we pay.
Q
Would Angel Eyes have killed Baker if he coughed up more cash for the additional information?
A
Angel Eyes gave Baker more information than what Baker paid for ($500 for Jackson's new name). Angel Eyes is the "Bad" in GBU. It was never directly stated that the $1000 was to kill Baker. In fact, the victim was probably offering it as a bribe for himself not to get killed. Angel Eyes uses the $1000 as an excuse to kill Baker and seek the $200,000 on his own. Had Baker been more fair and given Angel Eyes what he deserved for the information, he still would have died.
