Notes

Starring Gregory Peck, Jean Simmons, Charlton Heston, and with an Oscar-winning performance by Burl Ives, The Big Country was released in 1958. A classic Western, the score by Jerome Moross adds to the epic quality of the film. The music opens with one of the most famous of all Western themes, unfortunately much abused by advertisers!
