Die Hard of Hearing

Racketeer, gangster, hooligan, thug.
When the earpiece is pulled from your lug
I'll silently drill you
And violently kill you
So you won't hear the bullets go 'plug'.

David Cairns

Brian Donlevy's last scene in The Big Combo is played with no soundtrack -- to startling effect. With Richard Conte, Earl Holliman and Lee Van Cleef.
