Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is a lengthy, violent Western, considered adult material when first released because of the mass-killing, swearing, and the frank acknowledgement of prostitution, death, and greed. There's a strong futility-of-war theme in the bloody Civil War carnage. A character who became a clergyman rather than an outlaw is scolded for cowardice, and the film seems to support that judgment. There are repeated stunts involving characters who nearly get hung, only to escape at the last second when bullets cut the rope, as well as some cavalier playing with dynamite.

Sexual Content

A female supporting character is stated to be a prostitute. A brief rear-view nude shot of Eli Wallach in the bath.


Numerous men shot to death, some in one-on-one gun duels, others by military skirmishes and firing squads. Much cannon fire. A brutal beating and gruesome near-death from dehydration. One character bashed in the skull and run over by a locomotive.


"Bastard," "SOB," and some swearing in Spanish from Tuco.

Social Behavior

The Man With No Name is the "good" guy, and actually shows moments of compassion despite the character's ruthless attitude and quick gun violence. Killer Tuco is made sympathetic compared to scoundrels who surround him; he claims he had no choice but to become a desperado. A character who became a clergyman rather than an outlaw is scolded for cowardice, and the film seems to support that judgment. Female characters are either whores or inconsequential.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Much drinking in and out of saloons, and Eastwood and others have cigarettes clenched in their teeth a lot of the time, which becomes a symbol of manliness and comfort. Ditto for drinking heavily.
