Once Upon A Time In The West
Ennio Morricone

45

Up 11 places since 2013, Once Upon a Time in the West powers back into the top 50.

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.
