‣01/03/2014 RGHunt57 any information?
Does anyone know anything about this film? It's not listed in IMDB, and Morricone's official filmography claims that it dates from 1961.

‣03/03/2014 WebMaster Re: any information?
Very little is known about this film. It is a documentary dating from 1977. Indeed many filmographies date it from 1961, but the style of the music shows clearly that it cannot be an early score by the Maestro.

‣04/07/2017 Bob Hendrikx The film is from 1971
This is a TV movie, not a documentary.
The title is LA SCOPERTA DELL'AMERICA, not ALLA SCOPERTA DELL'AMERICA.
The telefilm is from 1971, not 1961 or 1977.
