Riz Ortolani's The Yellow Rolls-Royce
24-Jan-2016 - Disques Cinémusique has released the score for The Yellow Rolls-Royce. The movie tells three stories about the lives and loves of those who own a certain yellow Rolls-Royce: First purchased by the Marquess of Frinton for his wife as a belated anniversary present, the Marchiness finds her own use for the vehicle - one which prompts her husband to sell the car in disgust. Gangster Paolo Maltese's moll, Mae, thinks the Rolls is a "classy" car in which to tour Paolo's home town in Italy. By the outbreak of World War II, the car has come into the possession of socialite Gerda Millet. While on her way to visit Yugoslavian royalty, Gerda and the Rolls become (at first) unwitting and then (eventually) most willing participants in the Yugoslavian fight. The score is composed by Riz Ortolani.
Available for download from Disques Cinémusique.

Ennio Morricone wins Golden Globe for The Hateful Eight
10-Jan-2016 - The Hateful Eight writer-director Quentin Tarantino made a major flub when he took to the stage to accept the Golden Globe for Best Original Score on behalf of the film's composer, Ennio Morricone. The director said Morricone had "never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show" - but as many film buffs were quick to point out on Twitter, Tarantino was wrong. The acclaimed composer has in fact won two Golden Globes, one for The Mission in 1987, and one for The Legend of 1900 in 2000. Although Morricone has never won an Academy Award for a specific movie.
