I have only seen this one of the entire Dollars Trilogy, and I must say it's the best western I have ever seen! The music alone is worth watching the movie for, let alone Clint Eastwood in-IMO-his ...

While Eastwood and Van Cleef play some rather flat characters (albeit with their own little moments that hint at greater depths, such as Eastwood idly playing with a kitten at one point), Wallach is the grimy, rat-faced heart of the film; without him, things just don't work.
On a related note I think some small editing would have benefited the film (by cutting little from Tuco and Blondie messing with each other would have made the film more compact and increased van Cleef's screen time in proportion to others).
Overall, this is a fantastic film, one of the best ever, almost certainly the best western ever, and a film that covers the gamut of emotion and feeling, from sadness and pain to wit, and from that to violence and evil.
