9. Morricone: Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
This epic crime drama saw composer Morricone reuniting with the father of the Spaghetti Western, Sergio Leone. Robert De Niro and James Woods played the gangsters who rise to prominence in New York City's world of organized crime. Harmonicas, vocalising and whistling appear in Morricone's nostalgic, lushly romantic BAFTA-winning score.
