There are subtle clues inside the films to establish their individual timeframes, but no concrete evidence that they are connected in any way beyond the actor Clint Eastwood, and any connecting mannerisms he places in the character. Sergio Leone himself said that it was merely a packaging ploy by the American distribution company to link the films. The best ...
Each of the films works as a stand-alone movie, so there's no real reason to view them in any particular order. I watched them all separately when I was growing up, and it wasn't until years later that I even found out that The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly was connected to the other two movies by more than having the same actor/director pair. From the ...
Ooops! - I found the answer myself! It's Bite the Bullet (1975), starring Gene Hackman, Candice Bergen and James Coburn. Not as good a movie as I'd have hoped from that line-up, in all honesty. The movie centres on a 700-mile "endurance horse race". I think one of the central themes is basically that it's "the American way" to win at all costs. Per the ...
Could be Blind Justice (1994): Source ... a western about a blind gunfighter roaming the range with a baby in tow. The enigmatic Canaan (Armand Assante) is a serape-clad vision in black, first glimpsed carrying a swaddled infant through Monument Valley [...] He gets sidetracked in a one-horse town, where a small band of federal ...

For some reason I keep being drawn to The Magnificent Seven - but I have a feeling it's a John Ford film as mentioned elsewhere. Here's a couple of '7' shots anyway.
As I've written before, I don't watch westerns, but I just found a clip of Rango that shows the few minutes up to the above screencap. The surrounding area looks like Monument Valley, which is where John Ford is known to make his westerns. Feeling that Rango was looking to employ the well-known, I was concentrating on the John Ford/Monument Valley ...
Hmmm... Seem like you will have to be cautious as this reminds me of Mos Eisley Spaceport where you won't find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy: In case you don't know, this is from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Well, wbogacz already gave a very good affirming answer to the actual question. But as to if it was intended or how far it is consistent with the overall story: I think it is rather us audience who just want to draw a connection between different characters where there is none. This motivation lead at least to the coining of the term "Man With no ...
