The people have spoken. On our last two polls, that is.
First, they voted for Robert J. Randisi (aka J.R. Roberts)’s The Gunsmith series as their favorite adult Western. More recently, they chose Quigley Down Under as their preferred Tom Selleck Western film.
Now it’s time to split hairs on which is the best Western movie score. We are proposing four entries Per un Pugno di Dollari (A Fistfull of Dollars) by Ennio Morricone; The Magnificent Seven by Elmer Bernstein; Lonesome Dove by Basil Poledouris; and Per qualche dollaro in più (For a Few Dollars More) by Ennio Morricone) plus the highly imaginative category of “other” since it’s very likely that many of you will have their own picks and some others might even wonder what were we thinking of when we omitted your personal favorite.
If you think we have ignored other worthy Western soundtracks (How The West Was Won by Alfred Newman, The Big Country by Jerome Moross, The Alamo by Dmitri Tiomkin or Silverado by Bruce Broughton come to mind) you can vote for “other” and then list the name of the film score on the comments section of this post. We will catch up at the end of the month.
Let the voting begin.
