The Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone never forgot his friend Sergio Leone, the father of the spaghetti western. Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone attended primary school together in 1937, in Rome.

Over the years they lost each other’s contact information until 1964 when Sergio Leone hired Ennio to write “For a fistful of dollars” soundtrack. Ennio Morricone wrote the music for all the films directed by Sergio Leone until 1984, year of “Once Upon a Time in America”.
