Default The good, the bad and the ugly

In the classic western 'The Good, the bad and the ugly,' is the Eli Wallach character wearing a brown scapular? It's most visible in the monastery scenes while he is wearing the civil war uniform, I think.

In this scene he performs the sign of the cross and grabs that brown necklace to kind of bless himself ,so seems it is something religious

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.
