Horribly underrated film with another great combo of Morricone’s music with Edda Dell’Orso’s majestic voice! Yet another great drive-in memory seeing Duck You Sucker at the drive-in 40 years ago. The co-features starred James Coburn as well,but the title escapes me at the moment. I REALLY miss going to the drive-in. Anyway,cool beans post as always, Goregirl!
Apart from the obvious plotholes and unlikely events in this film – and the use of a MG42, 30 years before its existence – the main failing of this film is the truly awful music! Ennio Morricone did some excellent scores, but this one was dreadful! His style was always a bit too experimental and eclectic to be classed amongst the greatest composers, but he did some great stuff. Although, John Williams has done far better scores and John Barry did some of the best pieces ever on Dances With Wolves and Out of Africa. Actually, John Williams is the greatest composer of all time, so he has few equals. Elgar and Rachmaninov were the best classical composers, but Williams’ body of work is massive compared to theirs, and he’s done many lovely themes, compared to just 3 or 4 symphonies and concertos.
