Two bounty hunters are in pursuit of "El Indio," one of the most wanted fugitives in the western territories, and his gang. In the early 1890s, the man many call Manco is a bounty hunter, a profession shared by a former army officer, Colonel Douglas Mortimer. Manco arrives in the town and becomes aware of Mortimer, who arrived earlier. Manco confronts Mortimer after the two have studied each other, and they decide to work together as neither intends to back down. Groggy is angry when Manco is the only one to return from Santa Cruz, but Indio accepts Manco's version of events thanks to Mortimer having given Manco a convincing wound. Wild recognises Mortimer, forcing a showdown that results in the hunchback's death before Mortimer offers his services to Indio to crack open the safe without using explosives. Mortimer has secured the strongbox lock and Indio believes that the money is still there. Once Niño has freed the prisoners, Indio reveals that he knew they are bounty hunters and executes Cuchillo to make it appear he betrayed the gang, while sending his men after Manco and Mortimer in hopes they would all kill each other so that he can split the money just between Niño and himself. Mortimer shoots Groggy as he runs for cover, but is disarmed by Indio, who plays the pocketwatch while challenging the bounty hunter to regain his weapon and kill him when the music ends. As the music ends, the same tune begins from an identical pocketwatch which Manco has pilfered from Mortimer. Mortimer takes Indio's watch and Manco remarks on Mortimer's resemblance to the woman in the photographs.

Director:  Sergio Leone
