    You might also remember the dying soldier that Clint gives the cheroot to just before the end of the movie.  I think he was also supposed to represent someone beautiful, if only because he was helplessly dying in a war he probably was innocent in.  

    It really is easy to see ugly in pretty much every significant character.

      characters.  when I rewatch it, I will watch for that theme, of ugliness, and the hidden signs of beauty somewhere.  Perhaps Leone puts a flower in the desert somewhere as well, something like that.  I now find it ironic that they use beautiful trees to hang each other from as well.

      Please know I am not rude. I cannot rec anything from this browser. When I rec or post diaries I am a guest at some exotic locale's computer. Ayn is the bane!
