Sergio Leone's landmark epic about well-deserved revenge. It was the inspiration for ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, and KILL BILL (which is dedicated to the memory of Charles Bronson). Starring Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, and Claudia Cardinale.
Ennio had so much clout at this point that he conceived the music first and Leone had to arrange his edits around the embarassment of riches. The most haunting and diseased harmonica in history duels in tense space with a barbed guitar; the Cantori Moderni bears witness with an elegaic and then operatic chorus; then finally the harmonica staggers through its last corroded wheeze. Franco De Gemini was Ennio's brilliant harpist, adding ranges of texture to many great scores. Reportedly, Ennio got the proper sound and labored rhythm he wanted on "Death Rattle" by holding the neck of De Gemini and carefully squeezing it for the cues!
