The Magnificent Seven
is a 1960 American western film directed by John Sturges about a group of hired gunmen protecting a Mexican village from bandits.

It is a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 film, Seven Samurai.

The film's score along with the main theme is by Elmer Bernstein. The score was nominated for an Academy Award in 1961. The original soundtrack was not released at the time until reused and rerecorded by Bernstein for the soundtrack of Return of the Seven. Instead electric guitar cover versions by Al Caiola in the US and John Barry in the UK were successful on the popular charts. A vocal theme not written by Bernstein was used in a trailer.
