ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST is a Western drama in which a gunslinger joins forces with a widow to stop a business tycoon from forcing her from her homestead in order to make way for the railroad.

Sex

A scene of moderate sex occurs in which a woman appears to submit to a man, possibly out of fear that he will become violent if provoked. She undresses, revealing partial breast nudity, and is seen kissing the man on a bed.

Threat

In another scene, a man rips part of a woman's dress in a briefly threatening manner, although it is soon revealed to be part of a ploy and he does not actually intend any harm to her.

There are occasional scenes of mild violence, in which characters are shot.

In one scene, a hanging is implied after a boy - who was supporting the victim on his shoulders to prevent the rope tightening - has collapsed. The death was part of an elaborate murder and not an instance of suicide.
