The Big Country
Moross received an Oscar nomination for his score for The Big Country, a classic American Western directed by William Wyler and starring Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston and Carroll Baker.
Moross said he composed the main title after recalling a walk he took in the flat lands around Albuquerque, New Mexico, shortly before he moved to Hollywood in the late 1930s. In his handful of scores, Moross perfected an exciting rugged style inspired by his first experience of the Great Plains. An important and influential Western soundtrack.
