Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone dies aged 91
Italian composer Ennio Morricone, who created the memorable coyote-howl theme for the Spaghetti Western The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, has died aged 91. His lawyer Giorgio Assumma said the Maestro, as he was known, died in a Rome hospital early on Monday of complications after he broke his leg in a fall. During a career that spanned decades and earned him a lifetime achievement Oscar in 2007, before he took the best original score award for Quentin Tarantinoโ€™s The Hateful Eight in 2016, Morricone collaborated with some of the most renowned directors in the world.
