RIP Tony Brandt

The IMDb and Legends of the Cinema are both reporting that assistant director/actor Tony Brandt died on July 25th in Padova, Italy. He was born Antonio Brandt on June 13, 1930 in Rome, Italy and is often credited with co-director status on Monte Hellman’s 1978 “China 9, Liberty 37” this was only done for co-production reasons and his name was listed for tax purposes only and was never involved as director but did appear as an actor. Mr. Brandt appeared as an actor and assistant director in several other European westerns such as “The Arizona Kid” (1971), “A Fistful of Dynamite” (1971), “Massacre at Fort Holman” (1972), “China 9, Liberty 37 (1978)
