Song of the Day #796

Song of the Day: The Untouchables ("The Strength of the Righteous") is the main title to the 1987 film, composed by Ennio Morricone, who will be honored this evening at the 79th Annual Academy Awards with a long overdue Lifetime Achievement Award. The score to this film was nominated for a 1987 Academy Award for Best Original Score. Listen to an audio clip here. And so comes to an end our 2007 Film Music Tribute.


The Untouchables has a great score and is also a great movie. It sadly is not good history but who cares.

Agreed on all counts, Chris; I just can't resist the film, with its fine performances right down the line, especially Sean Connery, and, of course, Robert De Niro. That scene with him and a baseball bat brings new meaning to the word, "hit."
