Duck, You Sucker (1971)
This film's entire theatrical trailer is edited into this compilation.
Leone films the stagecoach scene with a number of extreme close-ups of eyes, mouths, faces, etc. that strongly recalls the Eisenstein film.
The joke Juan makes about Villa having balls like the bull is appropriated from a running gag from this movie
The Ireland flashbacks with John being betrayed by his friend are based on this John Ford film.
Ireland scenes are inspired by this film.
The 'love triangle' between John, Nolan and their mutual girlfriend is inspired by this film.
John and Juan's conversation about revolutions around the campfire is similar to a conversation between Ali and Bentley in this movie, both discussions involving the meaning of revolution and its results.
Juan and his family's ill-fated robbery of the Mesa Verde Bank is based on El Indio and his gang's robbing of the Bank of El Paso.
The scene where John blows up a bridge is taken from the scene where Blondie and Tuco do the same.
In one scene, Vittorio can be heard singing the main theme from this other 'Sergio Leone' western. Later, Sauro suggests they attend a screening of it.
The Mayor of Stromboli wants to have a music for his island like Ennio Morricone made for Giù la testa. He sings "Sean, Sean" and whistle the song.
The boss Pig Josh has TNT strapped to him the same way as Sean in the film 'Duck You Sucker!'.

Sargent Hollister attaches dynamite to himself (in a last-ditch attempt to kill Colton) similar to James Coburn's character (in Giù la testa (1971))
Protagonist driving a motorcycle in the middle of a desert has front wheel shot from afar, causing him to halt his journey, much to his dismay
The character Machete standing with his hands on his lapels holding his coat open is a direct copy James Coburn in Giù la testa.
Many similarities Leone's epic film, both make frequent use of sticks of dynamite in western settings, as well as the protagonist finding himself caught in the middle of a revolution , many characters appear to look just like John H. Mallory from the film, even so far as to appear to have the same pistol.
