Totally agree...especially when it is played when she arrives at McBain's ranch...very moving.

Or at the end. THAT was moving. And during the Monument Valley sequence...that was awe inspiring.

The Harmonica/Frank theme. Gives me chills.

The Harmonica/Frank theme. Gives me chills.

thats always gotten me a bit confused. Do Harmonica and Frank share a theme? But then what about that theme that kicks in when Frank rides into sweet water for the last time? or when Frank rides to go see Morton's train ambushed?
That theme is Frank's...isnt it?

but then why the Harmonica theme when Frank is killing Mcbain's family?

I'm a little confussed sometimes as to whats the Harmonica theme and whats the Frank theme. Someone in this thread I think suggested that they were the same theme.

I dont think so...

Frank certainly has a theme of his own. I mentioned it plays when he rides into Sweet Water to face Harmonica in the showdown and when he finds Morton's train in ruins.

cant recall another time Frank's funeral durge plays.

But what I'm asking is...is the "man with the Harmonica" theme shared by both Frank and Harmonica?
it seems that way.

I think its the one where he rides to Sweetwater (i'm sure its just a toned down version of the electric guitar one that he shares the other with H.

When Frank rides in to meet Harmonica the music sounds like a funeral march. We all know it is Frank's funeral, but someone who sees the movie for the first time might think Frank is bringing death for Harmonica.

Interestingly, the music used leading up to/during  the duel is "Come Una Sentenza" - the same bit used in the wake of the killing of the McBain family. A definite statement, I'd say.
