  Nightsurfer: <Ennio Morricone> has composed unforgettable music that has become an essential element of epic movies like <"Once Upon A Time In The West">, just listen to!

And check out the final duel between <Henry Fonda> and <Charles Bronson>: - thanks to great movie director <Sergio Leone> and thanks to his composer <Ennio Morricone>, that stand-off is breathtaking!

And here is one more duel that is AN ALL-TIME-HIGHLIGHT of MOVIE HISTORY, thanks to the great movie director <Sergio Leone> and thanks to his composer <Ennio Morricone>: the final shootout between <"The Good, The Bad AND THE UGLY">:!

So it is so good to learn that <Ennio Morricone> not only composes great music, but that he loves to play chess as well. And me, the author Rene Gralla, I now express my sincerest MILLE GRAZIE to Adolivio Capece who has emailed to me most interesting information concerning the chess career of <Ennio Morricone> and who has contributed two games that have been played by <Ennio Morricone>, so that those two games could become part of the data bank of <>.

I have been told by Adolivio Capece that <Ennio Morricone> is that fond of chess that he even played a couple of official tournaments in Roma/Italy more or less 50 years ago. And <Ennio Morricone>'s most important game took place in Torino/Italy in 2000 when he managed to achieve a draw (!!) during a simul against an opponent no lesser than Boris Spassky!

Unfortunately that game has not been recorded, conforming to Adolivio Capece.

The rating of <Ennio Morricone> can be assumed of being round about ELO 1800, the source for that: .

  TheAlchemist: I love most of his work that I know of. Here's a scene from one of my favourite movies:

  Nightsurfer: Two days ago - on <November 10th, 2013> - our Maestro <Ennio Morricone> has had his <85th birthday>! Wonderful!! Many happy returns of that day, Maestro <Ennio Morricone>!!!
Nov-12-13  Colonel Mortimer: As much of a legend as the 'spaghetti' landscapes and characters that he brought to life with his timeless film scores.

  moronovich: "Once upon a time in the West" is my favourit.Of all movies.

Thank you Ennio !

Nov-12-13  Cemoblanca: Very nice picture. :) Music sounds better with chess (or should I say chess sounds better with music). ;) Somehow, the same feeling. Well, I'm glad to say, that I've both in my life. :]
Nov-16-13  optimal play: My favourite Ennio Morricone soundtrack is "The Mission"

It's also my favourite Robert De Niro movie

Nov-16-13  SimonWebbsTiger: What? No mention of the music intro to the Classic British, BBC chess show "the Master Game"!

"Come Maddalena"
