A podcast episode about the western and how it sounds. Super fascinating to learn that most of the composers of early westerns weren't American at all, and of course Ennio Morricone is Italian.

Which figures in one regard- many of the early figures responsible for the emergence of modern movie music (Erno Rapee, Max Steiner, Erich Wolfgang Korngold) came from outside the United States, so it figures that it would apply for movie music in specific genres as well.

There were not that many American-born composers of any sort around 1920.

Gary Farmer is a name I haven't heard in a long time.

He was supposed to be a part of the Scalped show if memory serves me correctly

It's always great to see him in something.

He's a great magician

He shows up for a small role in First Cow which you should definitely check out

Totally! Loved that movie and it was so cool to see him show up

Does he say, "Stupid fucking white man"?

[–]MrX16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha, no. He actually only speaks in a Native American language that someone else interprets for him bit he does have a look on his face like he's thinking it!

Dead Man is extremely underrated

[–]jazzmans69 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes. It's in my top ten westerns of all time, for sure.

Johnny Depp gives one of the best performances of his career.

And the music! sooo great.

And the Cameos!

Not in this house it isn't.

The soundtrack is epic. Neil Young making Old Black sound like an animal caught in a trap.

"Stupid [ expletive ] white man." - Nobody.
