Re: The good, the bad and the ugly
Once heard a reviewer commenting on how most American westerns had a Protestant background -- it's always a preacher in the town, and the church is rather non-denominational, while in the Spaghetti Westerns from Europe, the church is usually specifically Catholic, and (in this movie) there's a monastery and priests.
Since, for the most part, these are just background, it usually doesn't mean anything, but I thought it was interesting.
