MADRID (AP) – Spain has billed 93 foreign film actors including Edward G. Robinson and Dustin Hoffman, and 38 directors for $185,000 in back taxes.

The screen stars and directors earned the money on location in Spain in 1966, the finance ministry said.

The ministry claims range from $8,087 from Canadian William Shatner to $23.50 from Italian Salvatore Borghese. Robinson’s bill is $1,321 and Hoffman’s $758.57.

A demand also is being made against the estate of the late Boris Karloff.

Others named on the list included Geraldine Chaplin, Catherine Spaak, Jean-Pierre Aumont, Rossana Schiaffino, Ingrid Thulin, Tab Hunter and directors Mario Caino, Luciano Lelli, and Bruan Forbes.
