Eggers' Character Unnamed?[edit]

Actually, in For A Fistful of Dollars, Eggers' character was named "Piripero". ---Posted by JS on 19 March 2007 at 2:36 PM

Mario Brega wasn't the only actor to appear in all three movies. Aldo Sambrell, Benito Stefanelli and Lorenzo Robledo were also in all three films.

Actress Marianne Koch, is also in all three films, with a major role in the first, however generally she has few actual lines across the trilogy and appears only incidentally. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.112.70.152 (talk) 13:09, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

SPOILER WARNING NEEDED This page needs a spoiler warning at the very top. The fact that the movies have been around since the 60's doesn't affect the truth that a lot of people haven't seen them. Schwin47 07:38, 28 August 2007 (UTC)Schwin47

In For a Few Dollars More Egger is "The Prophet." 24.60.239.47 (talk) 03:23, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

This article should be renamed to Dollars (film series) to bring it inline with the naming convention pertaining to film series. Let's discuss. - LA @ 10:45, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Please state whether or not you support the renaming of this article.

  • Oppose - Dollars trilogy does not appear to be an official name for this trilogy of films, and it is admittedly ambiguous when viewed out of context. That said, the proposed name change is even less clear. I suggest a move to Dollars (Sergio Leone film trilogy), to be most precise, or for the sake of the convention, Dollars (Sergio Leone film series)WiseKwai 12:56, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose I'd stick with Dollars Trilogy.[1] Doctor Sunshine talk 08:54, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I've never heard it referred to as "Dollars", or even "Dollars film series". It's always been called the Dollars Trilogy. Also, the another reason its simply the Dollars Trilogy title, is that the third film doesn't even have "Dollars" in its name. You couldn't say "Dollars (film series)" unless they all shared the name "Dollars" (i.e. Dollars, Dollars 2, Dollars 3).  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 13:49, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Chronology - Dollars[edit]

Just a minor note, which might not mean anything, but the dollars in the safe in a For a Few Dollars More are Confederate dollars, which I'm imagining would be worthless after the Civil War - if that is the chronology of the films. Probably a mistake in the consistency of the parallel universe of the films, unless the films are in reverse order, with Fistful after 1873 per the gravestone, More at the end of the Civil War, and The Good during the Civil War. Just a thought. Stevebritgimp (talk) 01:46, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm confused as to why people think "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" is possibly a prequel, or that they are in reverse order - The Man in Black dies in the film, while he is obviously very much alive in For a "Few Dollars More." I simply tend to think that the gravestone date inconsistencies in "Fistful of Dollars" is because Sergio Leone, being Italian and making a low-budget spaghetti western, made an honest mistake in regards to United States history. Deciding that "The Good" is a prequel or that the films were intentionally out of order is, I'm sorry, overthinking it just a tad. 68.200.180.97 (talk) 06:40, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
"The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" is absolutely a prequel to the other movies in the trilogy. Angel Eyes is played by Lee Van Cleef, who played Colonel Douglas Mortimer in For A Few Dollars More. That is not, even remotely, the same character. If you were going to make that kind of claim (that a starring character cannot be portrayed by the same actor in more than one movie of a franchise), then Ramón Rojo is apparently incapable of being killed, as Gian Maria Volonté (also credited as Johnny Wels) portrayed that character in Fistful Of Dollars and El Indio in For A Few Dollars More. More importantly, regarding evidence that this is a prequel instead of merely a sequel, you see Clint begin wearing his trademark poncho at the end of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. A poncho he consistently wears throughout the other 2 movies. No way was that a coincidence.§ — Preceding unsigned comment added by DreadPirateSynch (talkcontribs) 00:58, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

trilogy?[edit]

How can this be a trilogy if it's not the directors idea to make it a a trilogy? The audience can't choose what movies are related to each other. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.94.251.19 (talk) 08:05, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
