Wallach agreed, then realized after the first take that a metal step affixed to one of the cars had missed his head by inches.

As legend has it, the children were all getting along marvelously, enjoying food, entertainment and talking until the end of the dinner, when the head of a black bull was dropped on the table, symbolizing the death of the Black Douglas.

Suddenly a mysterious man known as Blondie approaches them and kills the bounty hunters.
I believe only Clint Eastwood the other lead actors are American. But if you wan to become fluent in the fictional language, this language course is one way to do it. Tuco digs up the loot from the grave only to find himself once again staring down the barrel of Blondie's gun, who now holds a noose in his hand. Blondie captures him and turns him in for the reward.
