Once upon a time (of creative genius) in the West

April 27, 2019

Ennio Morricone's most beautiful theme for Jill McBain's train arrival to news of her husband's death. Edda Dell’Orso’s heart-touching soprano orchestra beating operatic vocals, combining sadness, soul-searching, and yet so bitter sweet uplifting.


The captivating close-up faces particularly of Claudia Cardinale, Henry Fonda, Jason Robards, Charles Bronson, Jack Elam and Woody Strode. Who needs words?


Sergio Leone's most dramatic sweeping cinematography; crane turn, window shot and lift over roof for soaring town reveal crescendo. A frontier town in the developing old American West  brought completely back to life.


A tale of railroad corruption and a vengeful loner catching-up with a murderous henchman.


Film making masterpiece.  By all reckoning. Another celebration at 50.
