Voices of the Euro-western ~ “Django”

As we know most of the Euro-westerns were co-productions from Italy, Spain, Germany and France which incorporated British and American actors to gain a worldwide audience. The films were shot silent and then dubbed into the various languages where they were sold for distribution. That means Italian, Spanish, German, French and English voice actors were hired to dub the films. Even actors from the countries where the film was to be shown were often dubbed by voice actors for various reasons such as the actors were already busy making another film, they wanted to paid additional salaries for dubbing their voices, the actor’s voice didn’t fit the character they were playing, accidents to the actors and in some cases even death before the film could be dubbed.

I’ll list a Euro-western and the (I) Italian, (S) Spanish, (G) German and (F) French, (E) English voices that I can find and once in a while a bio on a specific voice actor as in Europe these actors are as well-known as the actors they voiced.

Claudio Rodriguez  [1933 - ]

Claudio Rodriguez is a Spanish-language voice actor who was born Claudio Santiago Rodríguez Martín in Zamora, Spain on August 31, 1933. He is most famous for being the voice of Charlton Heston and the character Willy Fog in the 1981 animated series Around the World with Willy Fog and Disney's Zeus in Hercules and the animated series spin off. In live action he is fondly remembered as the Spanish voice for Mel Brooks but he also has an extensive resume of work that dates back to the 1960s along with some on-screen appearances in live action sitcoms and dramas.
