Four Friends


Something for the weekend.  Four Friends theme from The Untouchables (1987) soundtrack.  It captures well the tale of four men who came together to perform the task of putting Capone in prison, two of whom paid with their lives.  ( The film has little in common with the historical Untouchables, but Eliot Ness during his lifetime began the process of turning history into myth, and the myth now overshadows the reality.)  The music by Ennio Morricone is wonderfully evocative of time and place.  The sad and powerful music recalls for me the line from The Lord of The Rings It is a sad thing to be a Man, but it is a proud thing too.
