From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although it was not Leone’s intention, the three movies came to be considered as a trilogy following the exploits of the same “Man With No Name” (Eastwood, wearing the same clothes and acting with the same mannerisms). The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is usually considered a prequel, since Eastwood’s character gradually acquires the clothing he wears in the other two films.
Actors who have appeared twice in the trilogy (all of them playing different characters):
The only actor to appear in all three movies besides Eastwood is Mario Brega, who plays a different character in each movie, all of them ill-fated.
It is debatable whether Egger plays the same character or not, since he is unnamed in both Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More, and Eastwood’s character seems to recognize him in the latter film from their previous acquaintance.
