Spaghetti Western English Speaking Voice Actor - Michael Tor

Michael Tor was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 19, 1917. Tor was another of the classic voices with an "Anglo-Saxon" accent in Italian dubbing, who specialized in giving a voice to English or American characters - tourists, ambassadors, Yankee gangsters, etc. Michael was above all one of the nicest Italian voices of Sylvester the Cat in the Warner Bros cartoons (and one of the favorites of many fans of the cartoons, even if few of them, unfortunately, knew that it was his voice...): Tor dubbed Sylvester with a curious Anglo-Saxon accent (which was indeed his, and therefore was not simulated!).

There a few records of his voice dubbing credits but we do know he was the English speaking voice of Fernando Sancho in “Killer Kid” (1967), “Turn I’ll Kill You” (1967), “Vengeance is Mine” (1967) and “And the Crows Will Dig Your Grave” (1971)

Tor died in Milan, Lombardy, Italy on February 1, 2009.
