Voices of the Spaghetti Western – Execution

 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 “Execution”

The film grossed 195,136 lire during its initial release

Natalino Libalesso  (1941 – 2021)

Natalino Libralesso was born in Rome on November 22, 1941 and began his career in radio as a speaker of Giornale Radio Rai. Due to the exclusive contract with the radio that was signed at that time, he began to dub under the pseudonym Stefano Carraro. Among the actors he voiced were Charles Bronson, Roy Scheider and Liam Neeson. Natalino was the Italian voice of Michel Lemoine in 1969's "Cemetery Without Crosses"; Angel Aranda in 1969's "Law of the Violence"; Vassili Karis in 1971's "He Was Called the Holy Ghost" and Paolo Resino in 1973's "Anything for a Friend". He died in Rome on March 24, 2021. He was 79.
