And Now For Something Completely Different

This is cool. A concert performance of "The Ecstasy of Gold" from the soundtrack to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Just listening to the music I get dizzy thinking of Tuco running around in the cemetary.

I always thought Leone took a helluva long time with his exposition, but the last twenty or thirty minutes of this film, when everything locks into place, are among my very favorite in all of film.

UPDATE: I know what's missing - where are the chimes? There've got to be chimes at the end!

I also know I'm going to have to watch this movie again this weekend......

I had found a cassette of the entire soundtrack (when soundtracks actually played the music from the movie) but either wore it out or misplaced it. I wonder if one could still find one or one on CD.

"...if one could find one.."


BTW, I'm listening to it as I am commenting and find that it sounds good, but not as good as the original.
