Synopsis / Plot
First we are introduced to the Ugly, Tuco (Eli Wallach), who leaps through a window after killing the men who were out to get him. Then there is the Bad, Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef), a mercenary who kills a man to find out the whereabouts of a large sum of gold; he then kills the man who employed him. Finally we see the Good (Clint Eastwood), referred to as 'Blondie'. He captures Tuco and turns him into the authorities for the reward, but then shoots the rope from around Tuco's neck and splits the money with him. They continue this business relationship, until Blondie decides there is no future in it and so sets Tuco down in the middle of the desert, 70 miles from the nearest town.
