Trivia

"Le Face" is the name of the composition which carries the same music as the famous theme with the panpipes from 'Once Upon a Time in America' (1984). 'I Malamondo' (and thus "Le Face") is from 1964, so that means the panpipe theme is originally being used in this movie. See more »

A remarkably entertaining film -- for its time.
6 June 2006 | by allen_hahnSee all my reviews

Saw this film when it was first released (1964) and was overwhelmed with the visual richness, and impressed with the soundtrack enough to have purchased it at that time and I believe it has at least one track that is not on the re-released soundtrack. I still have it and listen to it now and then since, in my opinion, the film's secret is in Morricone's soundtrack. Scenes and topics that were, in 1964, considered quite taboo, are tame compared to what's available in film today. It's nostalgic to see these old films and realize that that genre seems to have disappeared. Maybe the public has become so saturated with on-the-spot, round-the-clock coverages of everything in the world that films purporting to be exposes, can't find an audience any longer.
