For a few Dollars more

This is the second film of the “Dollar Trilogy”, together with For a Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

After leaving Jolly Film, the American United Artists, which will distribute the film worldwide, will enter the production; the budget is $ 600,000 against the $ 100,000 (perhaps) of the previous film.

For the role of Colonel Mortimer Leone tried to get Henry Fonda, Charles Brosnson or Lee Marvin; in the end Leone found Lee Van Cleef in Los Angeles, who had retired from the scene and at that moment was mainly a painter, suffering serious economic problems.

The film was released in Italian cinemas on December 18, 1965; in the USA on May 10, 1967.

The poncho worn by Clint Eastwood is the same used in the previous film; it is said to have never been washed.

In one of the initial scenes, looking from the train outside the window, you can see in the distance a tractor plowing the fields and another vehicle passing quickly on the road. In the frames below it is not very visible as at normal speed. However, you may notice a black dot that moves quickly from right to left following the delimitation line of the fields in the background.

Finally a beautiful image of the castle of La Calahorra, a Renaissance-style castle-fortress, built at the beginning of the 16th century, right in the middle of the West. It can be clearly seen at the top of the hill in the background.
