Ennio Morricone (1928 – 2020)

Whistling + solo trumpet + guitar + snare drums + chorus + dialogue from pulp heaven = wowza!

The great arena scene from Sergio Corbucci’s THE MERCENARY (score by #EnnioMoricone and Bruno Nicolai).

From when movies were not apologetic about swagger.

Watching the opening scene of Roland Joffe’s THE MISSION on Devi theatre’s 70mm screen — with the dead priest being sent over the waterfalls — was eye-popping, to say the least. #EnnioMoricone‘s magnificent score.

The beyond-gorgeous melancholic theme #EnnioMoricone wrote for Deborah in ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA.

Legend has it that the piece was written for another film, but who cares now? It’s Deborah’s theme, and that’s that.
