Once Upon A Time In The West
Ennio Morricone

56

Beautiful and violent, Sergio Leone's epic marked his first collaboration with an American studio.

Constant collaborator Ennio Morricone joined him — complete with harmonica. Morricone wrote the score before filming had even begun. As with The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Morricone's score plays an integral part to Leone's film, with various leitmotifs relating to each of the main characters. Love stories, dramas, Westerns — Morricone proves he can take on any film genre with this atmospheric soundtrack.
