> Originally the movie was meant to be another in the "Man With No Name" series, apparently, and Bronson's role was pitched to Eastwood, who turned it down.
I didn't remember that. Leone wanted the three stars of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly to play the three guys Bronson kills at the beginning. Did that idea come up only after Eastwood turned down the lead?
Fonda was offered any part he wanted. The predictable role would have been Robards' part but he decided to play the villain.
