The Man with No Name—"Monco"/"Manco"— and Colonel Douglas Mortimer—the "Man in Black"—are two bounty hunters in pursuit of "El Indio," one of the most wanted fugitives in the Wild West, and his gang. El Indio is ruthless, clever, and brutal. He has a musical pocketwatch that he plays before engaging in gun duels: "When the chimes finish, begin," he says. Flashbacks reveal that El Indio took the watch from a young woman whom El Indio found with her lover (in Joe Millard's novelization of the film, her newly wed husband), killed him, and raped her; she killed herself while being raped. There is a photograph of the woman inside the cover of the watch; it was a gift from her lover (in the novelization, it was a wedding gift from her brother).

Le conducteur de tramway Cesare Mancini, Romain transféré à Bologne depuis vingt ans, est un très bon homme avec un vilain défaut: il ne sait pas toujours rentrer sa colère. Au travail, il doit subir sans cesse les reproches de son contrôleur Rossi ; dans ses moments de loisir, il aime jouer à la pétanque avec ses collègues (lui et son ami Bernasconi, le receveur, sont imbattables, avec le résultat d’énerver encore plus Rossi qui est beaucoup moins doué); en famille, il doit faire face à une épouse affectueuse mais mauvaise cuisinière, à une fille impatiente de se marier, à un fils espiègle et à une belle-mère acariâtre qui ne perd pas l’occasion de souligner ses erreurs. Les membres de la famille de Cesare ont même l’habitude de s’exprimer en patois bolonais, sans qu’il arrive à comprendre un mot malgré les vingt ans passés dans la ville émilienne.
