almost nothing from this score is used in the film. A very mediocre bad film.

‣08/10/2014 eda-88 Re: Notes on UN FIUME DI DOLLARI [1966]
However accodring to opening credits, it was conducted by Morricone himself (see 6:47 minute)

‣13/10/2014 Bob Hendrikx Re: Re: Notes on UN FIUME DI DOLLARI [1966]
Thanks, Eldar.

Vinyl and CD releases (including the 1966 45rpm) give conductor credit to Nicolai, but the film credits Morricone.
Those Italians, huh?
I've adjusted my comment accordingly. http://bit.ly/19B365V
