Ennio Morricone, RIP

ROME — Italian composer Ennio Morricone, the Oscar winner best known for creating movie scores that accentuated the dialogue-free tension of the “spaghetti” Westerns directed by Sergio Leone, died here July 6 following complications from a fall. He was 91.

MSTies will recall that, in addition to his more famous movie scores, he composed the score for the movies in episodes 508- OPERATION DOUBLE 007 and 1013- DIABOLIK.

The Hollywood Reporter has the story.

Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

The Mads Plan a Streaming Event

Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff, aka Dr. Clayton Forrester and TV’s Frank, respectively, have announced a special livestream screening of Ed Wood’s “Glen or Glenda” on Tuesday, July 21 @ 8 p.m. EDT.
The show will mark Beaulieu and Conniff’s first time performing together this year, after The Mads’ 2020 tour dates were cancelled due to COVID-19. Tickets are on sale now for $10.
“If you’ve been social distancing yourself from ‘Glen or Glenda,’ Trace and I are giving the all-clear to watch this classic film,” said Conniff. “Of all the movies we’ve riffed, from MST3K to Cinematic Titanic and our own live shows, this is our favorite. Join us!”
“The Mads Are Back: Glen or Glenda” will broadcast live via a private YouTube link that will be sent to ticket purchasers an hour prior to showtime.
A percentage of the proceeds from the event will benefit NAACP Empowerment Programs, who engage primarily in training, education, and advocacy at the national and local levels.
“’Glen or Glenda’ might be the worst movie ever made, but it is also a film with great heart and compassion for the subject matter,” said Beaulieu. “I could be wrong. I’ve only seen it 50 times.”
The Mads will also be conducting a Q&A with fans after the screening for as long as time allows.

Tickets for The Mads Are Back: Glen or Glenda are on sale now.
