Morricone and Sergio Leone were classmates in elementary school [9] and in 1964 began to collaborate. In the same period Morricone began to collaborate with Bernardo Bertolucci. The first soundtrack he wrote for Leone was for the film For a Fistful of Dollars, in 1964, continuing throughout the next series of spaghetti westerns directed by Roman director: For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly , once upon a time in the West (1,260,000 copies sold in France), [10] head down. A partnership that lasted until the last of Leone film, the gangster-movie Once Upon a Time in America, fellowship that allowed him to compose some of his most popular music, greatly contributing to the success of the Leone films.

However, as they are the most famous and imitated, soundtracks written for Leo are only a part of the creativity of the composer, who has experimented with almost all film genres: from science fiction to thrillers, from erotic films to comedy costume, ending with the melodrama and historical films. In this sense, extremely varied and often curious his collaborations with many Italian and international directors such as Carlo Verdone, John Carpenter and Bernardo Bertolucci.

C'era una volta il West (Once upon a time in the west) - Ennio Morricone
C'era una volta il West - Ennio Morricone




The music was written by composer Ennio Morricone, regular contributor Leone, under the direction of the director before filming began. As in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, the haunting music contributes to the size of the film and, like that of the said film, is considered one of the greatest compositions of Morricone.

The film features leitmotiv that relate to each of the main characters (each with their own theme music), as well as the spirit of the American West.  Particularly interesting is the voice without words of Italian singer Edda Dell'Orso during the musical theme of Jill. Leone was the desire to have music available and played during the shoot. Lion made to Morricone to compose the soundtrack before shooting began, and reproduced the music in the background for the actors on the set.

Except for about a minute of the reason "As a judgment" before Harmonic kill the three bandits, no soundtrack is played until the end of the second scene, when Henry Fonda made his first entry. This may not seem particularly strange, even if the Morricone's music is usually considered to be a vital part of the westerns of Sergio Leone films. During the beginning of the film, Leone and Morricone instead make use of a number of natural sounds, for example, a wheel spinning in the wind, the sound of a train, locusts, shotguns, of pigeons wings etc., In addition to ' harmonica played by Bronson's character, since the accordion sound "inside the movie" rather than an actual soundtrack

The showdown is in fact also the title of a song written by Ennio Morricone for the score of For a Few Dollars More. Even the nickname given to the Cuchillo character played by Tomas Milian is taken from the nickname given to a minor character in the same film of Leo. There is also an obvious similarity between Cuchillo and Kikuchiyo, the character played by Toshiro Mifune in The Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa.

Per un pugno di dollari - Ennio Morricone
Per un pugno di  dollari - Ennio Morricone



For a Fistful of Dollars is a 1964 film, the first of the so-called trilogy of the dollar (with For a Few Dollars More, 1965 and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, 1966), directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood.

Cornerstone of the spaghetti western genre, is erroneously considered the first film of the genre: in Europe, before 1964, several Westerns were out, but without achieving the same success ; For a fistful of dollars, on the other hand, he reinvented the genre, now in decline, redefining the western archetypes.

The film is a remake of The Samurai Challenge (Yojimbo) by Akira Kurosawa.

Because it was the first film of its kind to be shown in the United States, many of the crew members and the cast took American names: Sergio Leone used the name Bob Robertson (in memory of his father Vincenzo, known as d ' art of Roberto Roberti), Ennio Morricone soundtrack signed with the pseudonym Dan Savio (but in some titles was renamed Leo Nichols), while Gian Maria Volonte appears as John Wells.

The soundtrack, which had a great success on the music market, is famous for the song booed, executed by the master Alessandro Alessandroni.
