Notably: It is Ennio Morricone’s birthday. All Americans have heard him even if very few have heard of him. Morricone, who died in Rome in 2020, was one of the great film-music composers and the inventor of Spaghetti Western music–“A Fistful of Dollars,” “Once Upon a Time in the West,” The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “My Name Is Nobody,” and so on. He also scored “Cinema Paradiso,” because to understand Morricone, one must have that sickness for nostalgia some of us cannot be rid of, or do without. He could have scored the last election and made you think: we’ll always have yesterday.
Now this: With all that time you have on your hands, compliments of Nicole, and if for nothing else but Ennio Morricone’s music.
