Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Whereas my ears say (maybe erroneously!) that Morricone's theme was written while watching the scene....

Nope, just the opposite. From what I know, director Sergio Leone often used to play the music for the actors while filming! But there was a back-and-forth included: Leone's films are like compositions themselves, he knew what angles, takes, timings and cuts he wants, and wrote detailed and technical scripts. So, already at the start of a project, Leone and Morricone would sit down with Leone's script and get an idea of what kind of music is needed in which scene.
