Morricone, Ennio (b. 1928)


The Big Gundown [La resa dei conti] (1966)



"The Big Gundown features another manic [Alessandro] Alessandroni take on the Duane Eddy/Dick Dale school of electric guitar and a ghostly, wordless soprano melody, a device the composer would use again to great effect on several future scores." 1
