The Magnificent Soundtrack

The sexiest group of cowboys ever? Hell yes!

Over at the Movie Morlocks Blog I posted a brief piece about one of my favorite westerns, John Sturges’ The Magnificent Seven (1960). It’s one of the earliest movies I can remember watching as a kid and falling in love with. I’m not sure why I was so drawn to The Magnificent Seven but I suspect it has something to do with my ranch hand roots, the amazing cast and Elmer Bernstein’s terrific score. Check out Variations on a Theme if you’re curious about the evolution of Elmer Bernstein’s unforgettable theme for The Magnificent Seven.
