[quote=“Col. Douglas Mortimer, post:1, topic:706”]I just finished watching the R1 MGM DVD, its a great film and the sound synch problem was hardly noticeable.
I have a few questions regarding the plot of the film. When Sabata and Banjo agree to do the duel, they say your 60000 against my 20000. Where did the 20000 come from?
Than they duel and obviously shoot blanks at each other and Sabata fakes death. How much money does Banjo recieve in the suit case?
SO they obviously planned this ahead of time but than Banjo attempts a double cross and releases the wagon that Sabata is lying in. Sabata knew this might happened and takes a rifle he hid underneath.
He than says that they agreed to 50/50, and than he says that Banjo is now entitled to the army reward and that he has to split it with Carrincha. But the army reward is only 5000. How is 5000 equal to 50-50?
Also, why did they offer Banjo 100000 to kill Sabata when all they had to do was pay Sabata 60000 to leave them alone?[/quote]
This is exactly what Alex Cox says in his Spaghetti Western book.
