Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo - Part 3

Eli Wallach has appeared in over 160 movies and TV shows over a career that has spanned more than 55 years, playing a whole host of character parts and with a style that means his presence on screen is always remembered.

For most people though, he will be most remembered for his performances in 2 films, his portrayal of Calvera in "The Magnificent Seven" and the role of Tuco in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly".

The Artizan Designs model of "Il Brutto" again, has too large a moustache for Tuco but overall I was pretty happy with figure, definitely my favourite of the 3. One of the distinguishing features of Tuco's costume in the film was the lanyard that he used to hang one of his Colt Revolvers round his neck. This required a quick visit to Mrs Kingsleypark's sewing box for a bit of suitably coloured thread.

"Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo"


  1. "Blondie!!!! You son of a B...........!!!!"
    He´s, not good as in, well you know what I mean. I´ve got the gold edition (extended with tons of missing scenes!!) of The Good, bad etc, and in the extras bit, it tell how he nearly got his head cut off with the footplate of the passing train (after he kills the one eyed sergeant)
    You need a graveyard now. "two can dig faster than one!"

  2. Great job!! Love the film I've seen it soooo many times and still enjoy it everytime. Tuco's my man of the film, a great character, just like the figure!

  3. "One bastard goes in, another one comes out. " Favorite character of one of my all time favorite movies. Nice detail with the lanyard, great job.
