Born in Rome in 1928, a lifelong Rome resident and classically trained musician, Morricone began studying at the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia at age 12. Advised to study composition, Morricone also specialized in playing trumpet and supported himself by playing in a jazz band and working as an arranger for Italian radio and TV after he graduated. Morricone subsequently became a top studio arranger at RCA, working with such stars as Mario Lanza, Chet Baker, and the Beatles. Well-versed in a variety of musical idioms from his RCA experience, Morricone began composing film scores in the early '60s. Though his first films were undistinguished, Morricone's arrangement of an American folk song intrigued director (and former schoolmate) Creator/SergioLeone. Leone hired Morricone and together they created a distinctive score to accompany Leone's different version of the Western, ''A Fistful of Dollars'' (1964). Rather than orchestral arrangements of Western standards à la John Ford -- budget strictures limited Morricone's access to a full orchestra regardless -- Morricone used gunshots, cracking whips, voices, Sicilian folk instruments, trumpets, and the new Fender electric guitar to punctuate and comically tweak the action, cluing in the audience to the taciturn man's ironic stance. Though sonically bizarre for a movie score, Morricone's music was viscerally true to Leone's vision. As memorable as Leone's close-ups, harsh violence, and black comedy, Morricone's work helped to expand the musical possibilities of film scoring.

* ''Film/AFistfulOfDynamite'' (1971). This is Ennio Morricone at his most "trippy"--complete with an EarWorm about "Sean" which may or may not cause you to try and tear your hair out....
* ''Film/TheThing1982'', where he imitates John Carpenter's composing style so well that many mistakenly think Carpenter did the score.
* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInAmerica'' (1984), which Creator/SergioLeone himself considered the finest work Morricone had ever done for him. Unfortunately, it was the victim of a particularly aggravating AwardSnub when the paperwork to submit it for an Oscar nomination wasn't filled out properly.
