And Alessandro Alessandroni (on one of the Leone 2-set DVD extra features) said that he did them all, and demonstrated, said he could always produce more whistle and less air than most whistlers.

I figure: he could physically/technically do it, he said he did it, and he was there.  So I'd bet on Alessandro Alessandroni.

I would like to be as sure as you are, Cusser. However, I have not found any conclusive proof indicating that Alessandroni was the whistler in GBU, even if it would make total sense that he was.

In any case, I am 100% convinced that (contrary to his claims) Curro (Kurt) Savoy did never whistle in any of the Leone SWs sondtracks. That leaves only two suspects for GBU.  Cheesy

Have you vieewed that DVD extra feature?  Also, saw a clip somewhere at the Leone festival in Los Angles/Western Museum, Alessandroni was there for the opening festivities.


See http://www.cinema-suicide.com/2008/08/22/an-interview-with-alessandro-alessandroni/
"In 1966, Morricone scored possibly his most popular and influential score, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. For the score Morricone used Alessandro’s clanging guitar sound, his choir, and his trademark whistle. He also had Alessandro use his voice in several unique ways, and his voice is the one you hear when the movie’s theme starts. "

I have seen the extra features DVDs in all 5 Leone's SWs and I cannot find the part where Alessandroni claims having done the whistling in all of them. Mind you, I may have missed it.  Embarrassed
