I've posted this elsewhere, but now it's got a proper home. I think the combination of the music and the scenes may work just as well if you haven't seen the movie. Anyway, it was the perfect music for that movie.

Absolutely ... the "Once Upon a Time in America" score is one of my all time favorites. I also rate these two highly:



Morricone is great, but I think Barry was totally underrated (and he had great taste in women---at one time married to Jane Birkin).

Who can forget these scores?
