Voices of the Spaghetti Western ~ “Sunscorched”

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 “Sunscorched”

Consuelo Vives  (1936 -    )

Consuelo Vivares Miñana was born in Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain on March 27, 1936. She appeared as a film actress in handful of films and TV appearances from 1957 to 1970. She was much better known as a dubbing actress for European actresses, mainly Spanish and Italian. Consuelo made her radio debut in about 1954. And at the time she was already specializing in children's voices and doing dubbing and filmmaking. At the time, she was popular for her role as the hooligan boy "Jaimito" in "La familia Lanco", a program on Radio España in Barcelona. She prefers dubbing because it is what pays the best. Today she is well and living in retirement.
