Trivia

The wood bed-like rack that Trinity (Terence Hill) lazily lies on and is dragged around on by his horse is known as a "travois". Wikipedia define it as "a frame for restraining horses...a historical frame structure that was used by indigenous peoples, notably the Plains Indians of North America, to drag loads over land". Photos of Hill lying on the travois were one of the significant images associated with the picture and were seen in production stills and many movie posters for the film. See more »

Goofs

In a scene with the settlers, they hang a large, clear water jug on a rope and is seen swinging next to Trinity, the scene cuts and is seen hanging almost perfectly still. See more »

the greatest comedy/western ever made!
5 April 2003 | by (granada hills, california) – See all my reviews

Action! Laughs! Beans! Filth! Flies! Sweat! B.O.!...It's all here in this terrific film about two half brothers (Hill and Spencer) who team up to save a helpless group of mormon farmers from marauding mexican banditos and a ruthless gang of ranchers. the entire cast is outstanding and never disappoints in keeping the viewers interested and entertained. the sound effects crew deserved an academy award, as one can practically feel the pain with every punch and slap! The climactic fight scene is the one which all fight scenes should be measured by (poor Mezcal!). It is absolutely hilarious! Tobias would be honored if you'd share their meager meal with them. Buy this title, "Trinity is still my name" and "My name is Nobody." All are classics for the archives.
