Once Upon a Time in America
Once Upon a Time in America was so long in development that Morricone had finished the score before filming began.
But this meant that, as with the first in the trilogy, Once Upon a Time in the West, the various themes could be played on set during filming. Among other things the soundtrack is memorable for two pieces, 'Childhood Memories' and 'Cockeye's Song', which were played by Gheorghe Zamfir on a pan flute. Zamfir's work can also be heard in the unusual Australian film Picnic at Hanging Rock.
