Obituary: Ennio Morricone


Italian composer Ennio Morricone, whose haunting scores to spaghetti westerns like A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly helped define a cinematic era, has died at the age of 91.

Born in Rome in 1928, Morricone wrote scores for some 400 films, but his name was most closely linked with the director Sergio Leone, who he worked with on classic spaghetti westerns as well as Once Upon a Time in America.

Morricone worked in almost all film genres, from horror to comedy, and some of his melodies are perhaps more famous than the films he wrote them for — via ABC News
