Did You Know?

Trivia:
Composer Ennio Morricone spoofs his own earlier Sergio Leone-helmed "Man with No Name" film scores with an over-the-top soundtrack, including shrill choral voices and a warbling whistle interwoven with a tinny recurring passage from Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries". Also the soundtrack reuses part of "Frank"'s theme from Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) for the shootout sequence.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: On some prints, usually the print shown on cable television, R.G. Armstrong is mistakenly listed in opening credits as "R.K. Armstrong."See more »

Nobody wants to be better than the best, 3 December 2004
Author: debrabander from Viane, Belgium

When you have seen the film, you should notice that the plot is not about Nobody competing with Beauregard, but about the former wanting to become the biggest and fastest gunfighter of his time. In order to achieve this, he has set up a plan to kill the biggest gunfighter that exists, Jack Beauregard, but not before beefing up the latter's 'achievements'. Jack, wanting to retire, doesn't understand Nobody's fascination for him, and really doesn't want to compete with him. In the end Jack is tricked by Nobody in fighting his ultimate fight, alone against the 150 men strong Wild Bunch, turning him into a living legend. When Nobody then agrees with him (the scene necessarily missing from the film because the 'clou' is given at the end) to act as if he is 'killing' him in a much mediatised gunfight, he will no longer be known as Nobody but as 'the man that shot the living legend'. Following this, he therefore truly is the best gunfighter of them all, and Jack can retire because he is pronounced dead.

I have now seen 'My name is nobody' some ten times and for me it's the best film I've ever seen, mostly because of the fact that there is a perfect mix between humor and western, together with a perfect soundtrack and a very good picture of the West and its landscapes.
