In The Untouchables (1987), during Jim Malone's (Sean Connery) death, what is the name of the song that we hear?
(The song serves as the ironical counterpoint to what is actually happening in the scene.)

Link to video; music starts at 3:49.

    I know nothing about Opera - but the video that you link has the word "Pagliacci" in the title. On IMDB, it says that a part of the soundtrack is "Vesti la giubba aria from opera 'Pagliacci', written by Ruggero Leoncavallo, performed by Mario Del Monaco" – Lefty Mar 13 '19 at 9:43

Like first commenter said, it's aria "Vesti la giubba", from Leoncavallo's Pagliacci opera.

    Thank you for your reply. An interesting trivia about 'Pagliacci' is, it was the first opera to be recorded in its entirety. – filmmaker Apr 18 '19 at 19:21
