Memories of Morricone: A Fistful of Dynamite (1971)

Hoezo in Kino

“Sean! Sean! Sean! Sean!” Maestro Ennio Morricone ushers Sergio Leone’s last film as a Western director to a beautifully strange conclusion with a majestic composition of whistles, yelps, the wordless vocals of Edda dell’Orso and some compelling violin parts interspersed with moody piano. While Morricone’s work on the Dollar trilogy and Once Upon a Time films might be better known, his score for Duck, You Sucker (as this film was originally titled) is right up there with his best work in the genre that he helped define. James Coburn and Rod Steiger feature as an IRA explosive expert and two-bit criminal who become heroes in the Mexican revolutionary war. A romp of an action film that was butchered in the editing room on release but is now restored to its former glory. Presented in English with no subtitles.
