I’m sorry tsar i’m not understanding

Isn’t the score for the movie the music?

That video doesn’t present any of that.
Can you provide some of his scores to vote on?

@chai2,
I guess if you not a cinephile.... He's a film composer who's work is as iconic as John Williams.

Arguably, his most famous score is for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.



If you ever watched a single Tarantino film, you'd very likely hear snippets or homages to Morricone's work.

Anything with Clint Eastwood... Spaghetified.

Was always ego-based orchestration - To drive the male testosteronics into 'Magnumhood'..

Thus.... Nvm.

@tsarstepan,
To be fair, I knew that theme from the GB&U was by him, but that’s the only one.

If you really wanted to know what score by him people liked best, you really should supply a list or examples.

I really don’t think you’re going to find many people, here at least who could think of much more than the GB&U.

Plus in your first video they were all some really obscure ones that you really can’t blame people for not knowing what the music to it sounds like, since the video didn’t supply any for us to work with.

So all due respect, don get all snobby with “you’re obviously not a cinephile “ when no one else has contributed to the thread either.

That said, I like the theme from the GB&U. My late husband had it as his ringtone for a long time, and it makes me think of him.

@mark noble,
That’s not the case here.

I think this in a great topic.

A bit more contest in the form of info would be appreciated, that’s all.

@tsarstepan,
Would you class 'Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid', 'Gone With The Wind' and 'Shane' as westerns?

Cheers.

@mark noble,
Butch Cassidy and Shane are.

Not Gone with the Wind.
That movie takes place in Georgia, which is a state that is right up against the Atlantic Ocean, and South. It's a romance/war movie.

Westerns are generally set in locations West of the Mississippi River, which generally divides the US into 2 halves geographically.

Also, a Western is more about rugged individualism, not concerning itself about politics, wars except in how they are impinging on the ever shrinking landscape where people can live by their own rules, as long as they don't harm their neighbor. Hence the common theme of good vs bad, white hat vs black hate.

GWTW was all about politics, society. I'd equate it more to a movie about life at the Palace of Versaille and the poor starving in the streets of Paris, leading to the French Revolution.
They were both about civil wars.

@mark noble,
Well, the change must be with you, because I'm not being any different from who I always am.

I can't tell you what a burden it is off of me to know that you currently have me off ignore.

Funny, like you think you're doing something for me by telling me that.

Maybe if you weren't so quick to say negative things about others, you wouldn't have to put anyone on ignore.

In other words, I don't give a **** either way.

You asked a question I was able to provide info on, so I did.

Also, take all you "have a lovely days" and cram them up your ass.
What a condescending asshole thing to say with your every post, particularly after insulting someone.

But, you knew that.

Yes - I knew that. I asked Tsar, Not you.
And that's why I'm placing you back on ignore.

Nope. Elmer Bernstein (as per its IMDb page).

@tsarstepan,
I do not have the ability to view 'stuff in blue' (IMDb-ETC). I use an outdated ps3 engine - 'Page cannot be displayed' appears on ALL links.

Did he Score 'Bonanza', please?

You can find these answers on Wikipedia. The Bonanza theme was written by Jay Livingston and Raymond Evans.
