Ennio Morricone remains one of the most inventive of movie soundtrack composers. In this selection from 'A Fistful of Dollars', he perfectly matches the visual imagery of the movie. The dusty land and the desperate characters come alive when I hear this soundtrack. I also like the classy use of the electric guitar!

Eagle flies higher than any other other creature so that he can enter the Spirit World while still alive. Eagle does this to deliver all the prayers of all the creatures. As he flies higher and higher, his wings are burned by the heat of the Sun. Hear him screeching in pain as he seeks the hole in the sky which is the entrance to the Spirit World. At long last, after great suffering, Eagle enters the Spirit World and the prayers are brought to Creator. The mission for which he was made has been accomplished. Eagle is a great symbol of steadfast love for Creator and His Creation. Thank you Eagle for being true to your purpose! (HwAn-Pi-Khaw = Ronald Roybal)
