    ^What?

    Actually, I think it's supposed to be a prequel to A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More, but you can only really tell because Clint Eastwood gradually picks up his clothes from the other two movies over the course of GBU.

    I looked at IMDB, it doesn't look like its a sequel, but I'm probably wrong.

    It's not a sequel. It's considered part of Sergio Leone's so called "Dollars Trilogy" which includes this and "A Fist Full of Dollars" and "A Few Dollars More". Its not a trilogy in the "Star Wars" or LOTR sense as each movie has nothing to do with the other, there just lumped together because Clint played a nameless gunfighter with no name.

    So, what you're saying is the character had no name?

    His name was Blondie. In Fistful, I'm pretty sure his name was Manco. The whole 'man with no name thing' was a marketing ploy developed by MGM when they brought the flicks over here.

    And, yes, it is one of the greatest movies evair.

    As acclaimed as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is, I watched about an hour of it the other day on HDNet. I thought it was awful, even by "old movie" standards.

    ^^^????

    I first saw it last year. No nostalgia to get in the way, I wasn't even born when the movie was released (I'm 21 years old), and I thought it was a great movie, even with today's standards.

    There's endless debate as to whether all 3 movies are in continuity, which movie is a sequel/prequel, etc, but I choose to look at it this way:

    They're as "related" as the 007 movies, or as "related" as Adam West's Batman is to Christian Bale's Batman. You're just giving yourself a headache trying to consolidate continuity into this, so just look at them as 3 Clint Eastwood westerns where he plays a guy who dresses, acts, and looks the same in all 3 movies.

    I truly think that Clint and Sergio Leone just tried to make 3 damned exciting movies with self-contained storylines. We might be putting more thought into "continuity" than Clint and Leone did, so just sit back and enjoy the ride.

    I'm still amazed that the combined awesomeness of Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef didn't make the universe collapse.

    But it did make the universe collapse. How else could we have got to the moon using 1960's technology?

    And if anyone here hasn't gotten the new 2 DVD boxed set, its *totally* worth the price.
    I have loved this movie ever since I was a kid, and watching this new cut, and the multitude of documentaries was like watching it all over for the first time.
    Normally I shun 'extras' but I made an exception this time, and am glad I did.

    Once Upon a Time in the West is considered by many to be the unofficial fourth movie in the series, even though it doesn't have Eastwood. Charles Bronson replaces him as the Man w/ No Name, apparently. OUATIW is also a great Sergio Leone Western.

    There's also A Fistful of Dynamite aka Duck! You Sucker, but I haven't seen that one yet.

    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is probably my favorite movie ever, at least in the top five anyway. It's well written, has good action, and great characters (Tuco especially). Plus it has great lines like "There are two kinds of people in this world...those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig". As has been stated before it is not a sequel or prequel to anything really, just lumped together with Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars more as three westerns with many of the same actors and the same director.
