German actor Gerard Herter who played Major Lloyd, leader
of the Confederate gold thieves in “Professionals for a Massacre”, appeared in
a number of other Spaghetti Westerns, including as the villainous Colonel
Skimmel in “Adios, Sabata,” and as the sharp-shooting baron in “Big Gundown.”
In an interview for Wild East, Edd Byrnes said Herter drove his Mercedes all
the way from Germany to Spain, so it’d be at his disposal during the filming.
