Voices of the Spaghetti Western – “Dynamite Jack”

 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 be 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.








Today we’ll cover “Dynamite Jack”

 

[(I) Italian, (S) Spanish, (G) German, (F) French, (E) English]

Dynamite Jack – Feranndel (F) Fernandel, (G) Klaus W. Krause

Dolores – Eleonora Vargas (F) ?, (G) Gisela Reißmann

Sheriff Scotty – Lucien Raimbourg (F) Lucien Raimbourg, (G) Erik Jelde

Sergeant Bob – Jess Hahn (F) Jess Hahn, (G) Alwin Joachim Meyer

Pegeen O’Brien – Adrienne Corri (F) ?, (G) Dagmar Altrichter








Klaus W. Krause  (1903 – 1981)

Krause was born as Willy Hermann Krause on May 2, 1903 in Berlin, Germany. In 1927 the District Court of Berlin-Neukölln gave him permission to use the first name Klaus. Krause received his artistic training at the Reichersche Hochschule for Dramatic Art. He first appeared as a theater actor in his hometown, at the Stadttheater in Koblenz and at the Schauspielhaus in Bremen. From 1933 to 1943 he was engaged at the National Theater in Mannheim. His last engagement before the end of the war took him to the Bavarian State Theater in Munich, directed by Alexander Golling . The first theater engagements after 1945 brought KrauseCologne to the Municipal Theater (1946-1947) and again to Munich to the Young Theater (1947-1948). From 1949 he also took part in small supporting roles in cinema and television productions.

However, he was mainly active as a voice actor. From the late 1950s he spoke particularly frequently of Jean Gabin, including in “Baldwin, the Night Ghost” (1968), “The Clan of Sicilians” (1969), “The Cat” (1971) and “The End of the Line Scaffold” (1973). He also dubbed Fernandel several times, e.g. “B. Reverend Don Camillo” (1961). He lent his voice to Gregory Peck in “The Wilderness Calls” (1947) and “Moby Dick” (1956). Other actors he dubbed were William Powell, Thomas Mitchell, Edward G. Robinson and Boris Karloff. In the field of animation, he voiced the Miraculix in “Asterix the Gaul” (1967) and “Asterix and Cleopatra” (1968) as well as Butler Edgar in “The Aristocats” (1970).

He was also used as a speaker in many radio plays, for example in 1959 in ‘Paul Temple and the Conrad Case’, the only Paul Temple radio play that was produced by Bavarian Radio. Krause also took part in Dickie Dick Dickens and a radio play version of ‘I Often Think of Piroschka’.

Klaus W. Krause died sometime in 1981 place unknown.

Who Are Those Guys? – Bill Curran

 Bill Curran was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 26, 1968. Bill has had a short career over a long period of time. He appeared at the age of six in the Euro-western “The Spikes Gang” as Gillis and then didn’t appear for three years until 1971’s “The Butcher of Binbrook” after an appearance in “Jaguar Lives” in 1979 as a gangster, he doesn’t show up again until 2005 in “Into the Maelstorm” as a dead body. To say his career was sporadic is an understatement. I can’t even say for sure if his credits are accurate as the IMDb lists him in the credits for two films made before his birth.

CURRAN, Bill (aka B. Curran) [1/26/1928, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. -     ] – film, TV actor.

The Spikes Gang – 1974 (Gillis)

Spaghetti Western Location “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"

 In “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” after Blonde leaves Tuco in the desert and tells him he’s sure he can make it back to town we see Tuco stumble across a rickety bridge back into El Paso.

The bridge was located on the far end of town behind the Yellow Rose saloon in Mini Hollywood/Oasys. Little of it remains today as you can see by the picture below.



Spaghetti Western English Speaking Voice Actors ~ George Gonneau

 

George Andre Gonneau Jr. was born in New York City on October 31, 1925. He started his career as an actor but turned to voice dubbin in the late 1950s with Titra Studios in New York City. During his long career at the Titra Sound Studios, Gonneau became the regular choice to dub Steve Reeves in the Italian epics. This was because both actors had similar voices, but Gonneau possessed the better dramatic conviction. As with other voice actors at Titra, Gonneau had to sign a secrecy clause since the studios did not want fans to know that their star was speaking with someone else's voice. The Reeves fan club knew the truth, however, and affectionately nicknamed the mystery dubbing artist as "The Consistent Voice." After taking over the dubbing of Reeves on “Hercules” (1958), Gonneau continued to dub him on “Hercules Unchained” (1959), “Goliath and the Barbarians” (1959), “The Giant of Marathon” (1959), “Morgan, the Pirate” (1960), “The Thief of Baghdad” (1961) and “Sandokan the Great” (1963). For reasons best known to Titra, Gonneau was selected to dub friend-of-the-hero Verus in the Reeves epic “The Slave” (1962).

Apart from his visits to Italy, Gonneau and his family lived in Paris from 1965 onwards whilst he worked for Avco Embassy Pictures. They returned to New York in 1975. On one occasion, George's son Daniel Gonneau (born in 1961) was invited to the Titra studios to dub one of the children's parts. However, whilst Daniel went on to do boat building in Maine, his cousin Jackie Gonneau born in 1962 (daughter of George's brother Pierre) became an accomplished voice actress in her own right.

GONNEAU, George [10/31/1925, New York City, New York, U.S.A.- 1/22/1997, New York City, New York, U.S.A.] – director, writer, film, TV, voice actor, dubber.

Fistful of Dollars – 1964 [English voice of Antonio Prieto]

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – 1966 [English voice of Antonio Casas]

European comic books ~ L’Avventura > Albi Americani - Albi Giramondo

 






L’Avventura > Albi Americani - Albi Giramondo

A total of 115 issues came out of this series of comic books of The Great Adventures From #1 on July 6, 1944 to #20 in 1947 along with the Albo series from #1 on June 15, 1947 to #88 on June 10, 1949.

The Great Adventure series did not carry series numbering but only that of the individual characters, while the Adventure Book, which had double numbering, that of the series and that of the characters, ends with #88. Actually, there are 95 registers as there are 7 bis numbers (#79, #81, #82, #83, #84, #85 and #86 of the Zorro Series).

Albo Adventure was in turn divided into two series: Albi Americani (with characters of American production) and Albi Giramondo (with characters of Italian production).

Comic book series that reprints material already appeared in L’Aventura, which initially comes out as a supplement, including: Audax by Jim Gary; Lyman Young's Cin e Franco (Tim Tyler's Luck); Folgore by Alberto and Mario Guerri (J. Fire); Lee Falk and Phil Davis' Mandrake; Marco Spada (Brick Bradford) by William Ritt and Clarence Gray; Radio Pattuglia (Radio Patrol) by Eddie Sullivan and Charlie Schmidt; Raff  by Alberto Guerri and Vittorio Cossio; Lee Falk and Ray Moore's The Phantom; and Zorro. Two vertical albums were initially released ("Mandrake Against the Tyrant" and "Marco Spada"), distributed only in central-southern Italy; the following ones are horizontal. Folgore and Raff series: they have a triple numbering, that of the Adventure Album, that of the character and that of the The Great Adventures collection. For example “The Underwater City” is the tenth episode of Raff, the #36 of the Adventure Register and #20 of the Great Adventure collection. The first six issues of Raff came out as Albi di Giramondo le Grand Adventure.

Mandrake series: #8/9 are part of the Adventurous Register (1948). "The End of the Octopus" was printed before "The Pirates-Ghosts" and "Nel covo di Lafitte" although it was the final part of the whole story; from the episode "The Valley of the Wolves" (#79), the numbering of the series resumes from #1. In the appendix Arm of Iron by Bela Zaboly, also published in the albums of Radio Pattuglia.

The Masked Man Series series: "A Theft from the Cave of the Skull" was printed after "The Stolen Treasure" and "The Justice of the Bandar" despite being the beginning of the whole story.

The series was printed by CPM (Capriotti Publishing House) in Rome under the direction of Alberto Crucillà. Each issue consisted of 16 black & white pages with color covers and was released weekly.

Remembering Joaquin Romero Marchent

 Passion Cinema

By Angelo D'Ambra

August 7, 2022

He is the father of the Spanish western, a director who has left his mark [1921-2012]. We are talking about the Madrid-born Joaquín Romero Marchent, a wizard of the camera, who in 1955 took over from the Mexican Fernando Soler as director of the diptych "El Coyote" and "La Justicia del Coyote", created by the novelist José Mallorquí, and, since then, has shone in spaghetti western.

When it comes to spaghetti westerns, and Spanish westerns in particular, we cannot forget Joaquín Romero Marchent, screenwriter for his brother Rafael of "Garringo" in 1969, with Anthony Steffen and Peter Lee Lawrence, and of "Sartana Kills Them All" of 1970, with Johnny Garko, but also director of films such as" The Implacable Three "of 1963," and "Seven from Texas" in 1964, "Seven Hours of Gunfire" from 1965 and "$100,000 for Lassiter" and "Hands of a Gunfighter" from 1966.

We think of him as the father of spaghetti even before Sergio Leone landed in Spain to shoot “A Fistful of Dollars”. His works were characterized by the classic cut, the fluid narrative, captivating subplots. Violence and cynicism are still missing, the characteristic shots of the genre are missing. All this will be introduced by the Italians, but Joaquín Romero Marchent has a good style, great skills, a taste for atmospheres, attention to detail and a love for action scenes and battles that seem typical of one of the average Hollywood productions of the time.

He made his debut in the cinema in the mid-Quarana thanks to his father, owner of the specialized magazine Radio Cinema and founder of Intercontinental Films, after ending a socceer career and trying different courses of study.

In the beginning he worked with directors such as Díaz Morales, José María Forqué or Luis Lucía, until 1953 when he made the detective story "Permanent Juzgado" and then the remake of a religious film, "Sor Angélica". Critics rated the evidence positively, but the films went unnoticed at the box office. He wanted to do something else, and he did. In 1955 he made two western films, the first ever in Spanish cinema: “El Coyote” and “La Justicia de El Coyote”, Hispano-Mexican co-productions inspired by the adventures of the masked hero of José Mallorquí's novels.

He continued by returning to dramatic films that did not give him much commercial success, so he returned to the western, again with masked heroes: "La venganza del Zorro" and "Cabalgando hacia la muerte", Italian-Franco-Spanish co-productions, again with the writing of José Mallorquí.

The results were convincing and Mallorquí again collaborated on "The Implacable Three". Within six years, Joaquín Romero Marchent directed seven westerns, establishing himself as one of the fathers of the genre.

Frequently he was alongside his brothers Rafael, actor and director, Carlos, also actor and director, and Ana María, editor, grossing a lot and opening his own production company, Centauro Films, with which he produced films such as "I Want Him Dead" by Paolo Bianchini.

His dramatic streak and great ability to capture the atmosphere of the West were also exploited in writing. In fact, he collaborated on the screenplay of "Mani di pistolero" by his brother Rafael, in "Kill Them All and Come Back Alone" by Enzo G. Castellari in 1968. In this capacity he contributed to one of the most successful television series in Spanish history, "Curro Jiménez”, Based on Andalusian brigand.

Spaghetti Western Locations ~ “The Mercenary”

 We continue our search for film locations for “The Mercenary”. After Paco’s gang murders the Federally troops the scene moves to a troop train carrying federal troops among which are Polack, Paco and his men wearing the soldiers’ uniforms from the last battle. Paco sees his picture on the newspaper a officer is reading across from him on a train bench. Kowalski pulls the emergency brake, and the train comes to a screeching halt. They ride off with the soldier’s horses and the officer as hostage. When they reach Paco’s camp the turn the soldier loose and tell him to walk the 20 miles back to the train.

This scene was shot in Las Salinas, Tabernas, Spain. The distinctive hill top has been seen in many Spaghetti westerns including “Death Rides a Horse”.
