I am sure this has been asked by other members.
I was lucky enough to find a CD called, "Music for the Movies of Clint Eastwood"
What a great CD!

From the choices given I've plumped for Dirty Harry .
Lalo Schifrin is one of my favourite movie composers and Harrys theme is one of his very best  .It screams 70's cop thriller and has a delicious darkness to it . Almost as cool as his theme for Bullit ........... almost .

Shame "Magnum Force" theme is not mentioned.  That is my all time favourite theme and begining to an Eastwood film for that matter.

Doe Eyes.      What else, although I must admit to having The Good The Bad and The Ugly as  the ring tone on my phone :P

I have locked the last poll. (From 02/12/05)  I included Doe Eyes in it and it won with 53.3% of the votes and here it is again and so far it seems to be winning. O0

Doe Eyes, no question, no competition, so haunting. Although, I am still surprised that "At Last" by Etta James (best song ever) wasn't included in the movie and the soundtrack......would have fit very well. :)

Very true, Dave.  It would have gone perfectly inBridges.

All the music in Bridges is haunting and Million Dollar Baby is having the same effect as far as the music is concerned.

From the choices available it's: Outlaw Josey Wales -- which is actually music that goes back to the Civil War.

G.A., if interested, you can get that theme (which is a great rendition) on a set of CD's from Rhino music. I bought a 4 CD set several years ago that has music from people like:
Roy Rogers.
Gene Autry.
Sons of the Pioneers.
Tex Ritter.
Etc.

But, on the 4th disk, you have nothing but movie thematic music from movies like:
Good and the bad and the ugly.
Magnificent Seven etc. Oh and if it really matters, you also get the original Disney's Davy Crockett theme in full. I know the series is still for sale if your interested? Or, if my stereo speakers were working, I would gladly make you a tape with this music and send it to you? If interested in that, please let me know? :)

I have the Good the Bad and the Ugly um, I think its the new revised Soundtrack on CD with the added songs.. and the Import of the For a Few Dollars more, which I believe also includes the songs from Fistfull of Dollars as well. So I'm all set on the Spagetti westerns soundtracks.. I'm not familiar with the others.. well, I know who Roy Rogers is and Davy Crockett, but too be honest, I never heard of Gene Autry, Sons of the Pioneers or Tex Ritter. I feel embarassed to admit that now!  :-[

I never heard of Gene Autry....

You probably have and didn't even know it.



He sang the most famous version of this Christmas classic.
