I just received the Giu La Testa soundtrack CD this weekend.
After listening to all the tracks several times over, I now
believe this is Morricone's finest work IMO.
Yes, OUATITW ranks high on my list, but taken as a whole
the GLT Soundtrack surpasses all. Morricone is pure genius Cool

I got the CD for Christmas and I feel it is his greatest work under OUATITW. I love the main titles when the violins come in, I think that part was played when the bridge got destroyed.

yes it is superior to OUATIW soundtrack!
West has a few masterful tracks in there but the saloon and suspense music is a bunch of filler!

Both soundtracks are great, masterpieces. I just think OUATITW is slighty superior because of...man with a harmonica!

Peacemaker,

I find it very unusual that someone as young as yourself
shows so much interest in SW's. How long have you
had this interest?  My kids (ages 13 to 19) refuse to watch
anything related to above. I must have done something
wrong during their formative years. Unless they aren't...uh, I better not go there.

Peacemaker,

I find it very unusual that someone as young as yourself
shows so much interest in SW's. How long have you
had this interest?  My kids (ages 13 to 19) refuse to watch

wrong during their formative years. Unless they aren't...uh, I better not go there.

I first got into SWs in 2002. I was flipping through the channels until I hit AMC which was showing OUATITW. It was up to the part when Cheyenne rescues Harmonica from Morton's train. I never liked movies or westerns before but something I've always loved kept me watching...trains. I've always been a rail buff so I watched it for the train.

But the movie looked good so next time it came on I taped it and asked my father about it ( he's a movie person ). He said " oh yeh! Sergio Leone's spaghetti western, great movie. " He told me about the Italian westerns so I watched it. I fell completely in love with the movie! For a 12 year old kid who never saw a western in his life I looked at the movie in awe saying to myself " I never seen anything like this! "

Many people said the movie was slow but I thought the suspense was so edge-of-your-seat that the movie felt like 1 1/2 hours. The ending almost made me cry and I said to myself " I want to make a movie like this guy did. " So that triggered my love for westerns, Sergio Leone, and my dream of being a film maker.

Geoman, I think appreciation for Leone's work only comes from a certain level of maturity. To enjoy and fully comprehend Leone's films you have to be mature. It also has to do with a toleration for something older than yourself which is something missing from my generation. Kids like Beebs, Groggy, and I have a huge toleration for films that are older than ourselves. I think that might be why your children have no interest in these movies. But I wish you luck, maybe when they grow out of this phase they'll give a leone picture a try.   Smiley

Well, I believe I'm even younger than Peacemaker! 

To explain for myself (though you didn't ask Grin), I've always been something of a monomaniac, whenever I become interested in something I become obsessed with it.  When I was a young kid it was animals and cars, more recently "The X-Files" and currently David Lean.  That would explain the degree of interest in and knowledge of Leone films from me.

But I always watched Westerns with my dad as a young kid (specifically John Wayne's, I mean he was my hero when I was eight and nine years old), so I think my interest in Leone was only a logical extension.  I first saw the last hour of GBU on TV when nothing else was on when I was eight.  In October 2000 I watched the last two hours on TNT (somehow I kept missing the desert sequence!).  And then I watched FAFDM and GBU again the day after Thanksgiving, and it just snowballed from there.

It is heartening to see that young people such as yourselves
have the wisdom to appreciate the works of men from generations before you. It is up to you and your generation
to continue to promulgate their legacy or else their works
will slowly fade into obscurity Embarrassed

My dream is to be a film maker one day. My real dream is to make a real western one day in the style of Sergio leone but add things to the myth with my own trademarks.

Believe me, that rule is number 1 in my director's rulebook.   Wink

Me too.  I think we should co-direct something.  Grin

I've got about a million ideas up in my head, as most of you well know.  Some of them are joking, others are ones I'd seriously want to pursue.  I wouldn't limit myself to just Westerns, I'd want to explore many different genres - but if I become a film maker, I'll at least make the "Seven Magnificent Professionals" one.  Grin
