In publicity photos, Loco is shown holding a "WANTED" poster of an outlaw named Manuel Vasquez, a character who is not seen in the film. The poster is, in fact, a leftover prop from 10,000 Dollars for a Massacre
(1967), in which Vasquez is a character played by Claudio Camaso
. In The Great Silence
