‣10/02/2020 Bob Hendrikx Notes on Soundtrack: LE PILLOLE DI ERCOLE (1960)
Director: Luciano Salce (1922-1989) link
Certified in Italy on 3 September 1960. link
Premiered in Italy on 10 September 1960. link
Music: Armando Trovajoli (also written as Armando Trovaioli) (1917-2013)

Emanuele Salce (son of director Luciano Salce): "Ennio Morricone met my father on television in a program written by Salce and Scola, LE CANZONI DI TUTTI (1958), where Morricone worked as an arranger. Salce called him to the theater for two of his comedies, LA PAPPA REALE and IL LIETO FINE. He also wanted Morricone for his first Italian film LE PILLOLE DI ERCOLE, but the musician was not accepted by the producer because he didn't know him." link

Ennio Morricone: "Luciano already wanted me for his film LE PILLOLE DE ERCOLE, produced in 1960. But when the producer, Dino De Laurentiis, discovered that a certain Morricone would have to take care of the music, he said, 'Who is this guy? I don't know him.' Hence they hired Armando Trovajoli." (In His Own Words, page 20)

Morricone states how the things went from 1958 on:
"Scrissi il mio primo concerto per orchestra, fatto qui proprio alla Fenice a Venezia, nel 1958 e fu una bella esecuzione. Andai a vedere i diritti d'autore: presi in nove mesi di lavoro 60.000 lire. Ho detto: "Qua non va" perché avevo già famiglia e non potevo...
E allora già mi ero un po' inserito nel campo degli arrangiamenti: allora non c'erano musicisti veri che facevano questo lavoro e io mi distinsi subito, presso la radio e poi presso la televisione; mi chiamarono per i dischi, ho fatto tanti successi per i dischi. Questo mi ha aiutato ad avere un grande mestiere.
Luciano Salce s'è accorto di me, lavorando in televisione, per una sua trasmissione che faceva insieme a Scola, "Le canzoni di tutti", dove io facevo l'aiuto, l'arrangiatore insomma, di Franco Pisano. si accorse di me, fece la musica del "Federale", fu un grande successo non tanto la musica quanto il film e poi mi chiamò ancora dopo un anno per un altro film e a poco a poco, così..."
