Fistful of Dynamite / Ennio Morricone
Fistful of Dynamite, or ”Duck, You Sucker” features one of the most glorious and unforgettable scores by Leone’s composer, Ennio Morricone. And the power of ”Invention for John,” which plays over the opening credits and is essentially the film’s theme, is as epic and truly wondrous as anything Morricone ever did. Alone, the soundtrack will bring tears to your eyes, and it adds a great deal to Coburn’s calculated silences.
