Joe rescues the condemned Tuco from the hangman's noose.
The culmination of Leone's renowned "Dollars" Western series that includes A FISTFULL OF DOLLARS (1964) and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (1965). Set during the Civil War, this wagon load of grit carries three desperadoes whose squinting eyes are fixed on a Confederate treasure. While dodging authorities, they keep busy stabbing each other firmly in the back. A typical Leone picture with brooding vistas, leisurely pacing, operatic violence and a haunting score from Morricone.
