Morricone knew he had made it when a half naked woman was used on the generic cover for this compilation of his music.
Born November 10, 1928, Ennio Morricone is an Italian composer. He has composed and arranged scores for almost all the continental European films made in the later half of the 20th century, and his compositions have kept many easy listening orchestras in gainful employment with interpretations of A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), and Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)
His later compositions have has less success in this market as very few folk can chill out to the like of The Thing (1982), Lolita (1997), or Mission to Mars (2000).
He has never been seen in the same room as Jerry Goldsmith, leading Daza to suspect that they may in fact be one-in-the-same person.
