Picture Perfect: August 21 - Into the Sunset with Ennio Morricone
The great Ennio Morricone died last month at the age of 91. The composer of over 500 film and television scores, Morricone first gained international fame through his idiosyncratic music for the westerns of Sergio Leone. A six-time Academy Award nominee – and the recipient of an honorary Oscar in 2007 – Morricone earned his only competitive Oscar as recently as 2016, for his work on Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight.” We’ll remember this prolific and inventive composer with selections from the genre he transformed, this Friday at 6 pm.
