Seytan tirnagi (1972)
Same story
Gunmen (1993)
Cole Parker is Blondie (The Good), Armor O'Malley is Angel (The Bad) and Dani Servigo is Tuco (The Ugly). In GB&U they're looking for gold in a cemetery. One knows where the cemetery is and the other knows which grave. In Gunmen it's drug money on a boat. One knows which harbor it's in, the other knows the name of the boat.

edited from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, reworked into a black and white metacinema


Greed (1924)
The movie ends with Tuco stranded with a large sum of money and no horse to get back to town, as a nod to McTeague's fate.
The General (1926)
A battle fought over a destroyed bridge is shown.
The Public Enemy (1931)
The sequence featuring Tuco assembling a revolver and subsequently robbing the shopkeeper with it are an homage to and extended riff on a scene in Wellman's early gangster film.
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
The scene with Blondie and Tuco, mistaken for prisoners of war, being marched into the Union prison camp is reminiscent of the Col. Bogey March sequence. Also, both movies have a scene with a bridge being destroyed.
La grande guerra (1959)
Influenced the Civil War backdrop for Blondie and Tuco's conflict.
The Magnificent Seven (1960)
The shot of Blondie, Angel Eyes, and Angel Eyes' men mirrors The Magnificent Seven

In terms of cinematography and pacing, the scenes of C-3P0 and R2-D2 making their separate journeys through the desert are reminiscent of Tuco's torture of Blondie.
