Title: Morricone spaghetti reference
Post by: Cusser on March 05, 2004, 07:54:15 AM
From Albany (N.Y.) Times Union, Greg Haynes, in a story about film scores that appeared today in my local paper:
"Ennio Morricone's ominous whistling theme for Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" said everything that Clint Eastwood's "Man with No Name" didn't.  It also mentioned Clint for doing music for several of his own pictures, including Mystic River.

Yes, and the music of Mystic River is not bad at all.

Of course, our friends of the Academedy would prefer "Lord of the Rings" or anothe movie of the same kind.
