This man was incredible.
That final scene from once upon a time in the west with the harmonica, his music the tells the ebntire story with no words neccessary.
It tears me up, fills me with sadness, rage and satisfaction all at the same time.
I dont know if this is true, but i read somewhere once that sergio leone actually showed ennio the script to once upon a time in the west before any
filming took place
Then he had ennio write a theme for all the 4 main charcters.
This was then the first movie in history that I am aware that the sound track was recorded before the movie, and then played on set of the movie
during each scene, so the actors could walk in step with the music and feel what their characters truly were.
ALso, the ecstasy of gold may be the greatest song of all time.
If ever i am called upon to make a final stand, that is the song id want playing.
