When the bridge is blown up, and Tuco and Blondie are hunkered down behind sandbags waiting for the explosion, Clint Eastwood's career came within 2 feet of ending prematurely. A fist-sized piece of rock shrapnel from the explosion slams into the sandbag right next to Eastwood's head (watch it in slow motion to see the rock flying in).

Here's a special thanks to Intrepid for sending me a clip of this movie and reminding me of it. Along with horror movies, I can't get enough of westerns. This is one of my all time favorites. Clint Eastwood is just amazing in this movie.
Released in 1964, this movie features Clint Eastwood (who plays the man with no name); a wandering gunfighter. He comes to a town that's being torn apart by a war between two families. He decides to play the two against each other and maybe make some cash in the bargain. Life and death hang in the balance for a Fistful of Dollars.
