- The final duel between Frank and Harmonica was shot almost exactly like the one in The Last Sunset (1961) between Rock Hudson and Kirk Douglas, a film of which Bernardo Bertolucci was a huge fan.
- As Frank and his gang ride away from the train, tire tracks are visible in the dirt.
- Harmonica: Your friends have a high mortality rate, Frank. First three, then two.
- Frank: So, YOU'RE the one who makes appointments.
- Harmonica: And you're the one who doesn't keep 'em.

It’s probably unwise to come to Leone looking for too much in the way of feminism. Instead, Once Upon a Time in the West offers quintessential examples of the things he was better known for, including another blustery Ennio Morricone score. Visually, he mostly vacillates between extreme close-ups of intense faces and vast widescreen compositions, a technique that is lurching but also luridly beautiful.
Good fun, especially if you like Leone's way of savoring the last morsel of every scene. (Review of Original Release)
