Musically, Morricone's showdown themes were like the centrepiece of Leone's westerns. They all followed a similar pattern - slow, a build-up to a climax, soft strings coupled with noisy brass - but which was the best? My personal favourite is the one in For a Few Dollars More - the haunting pocket watch theme, and when the organ comes crashing in it's amazing. What does everyone else think?


It's class.

I have the same opinion.

For me its definitely Harmonica's Theme, it's just so dramatic and adds a great deal to the scene.

its gotta be harmonica because the music is just absoultely perfect and in complete pace with leone's direction - it is IMO Morricone's greatest piece with possible exception of mission soundtrack 8)


Dave Jenkins, Calder Benson, Jim Cooper, Chuck Youngblood. They were all alive until they met you, Frank.
