American actor Craig Hill died in Barcelona, Spain today Monday April 21st. He was 88. Hil left the U.S. in 1965 and went to Europe landing in Spain where he made his first Spaghetti western “Hands of a Gunman”. He’d end up starring in over a dozen. In 1990 he married model and actress Teresa Gimpera who also appeared in several Euo-westerns. Hills last acting appearance was in Flyin Saucers in 2003. Another of the stars of the genre has left us as the list gets shorter and shorter.
A great loss to the genre, Rest in Peace.
R.I.P, Mr. Hill
Sad news. R.I.P.
R.I.P. to a giant of the genre.
Sad to hear about Craig Hill’s passing. I’ve only seen 5 of his films but I liked him as an actor. My favorite film with him would be, The Bloodstained Shadow. A close 2nd would be, Assignment Terror with Paul Naschy. R.I.P Craig.
Sad news. R.I.P
RIP Craig Hill. As Tom says, a star of the genre.
Another legend. RIP Lanky Gunman.
R.I.P…liked alot of his roles in westerns.
The things we know thanks to Tom, didn’t know we was married to Teresa Gimpera.
RIP, a talented Spaghetti actor
Very sad news. RIP. Lo voglio morto has always been among my favourite sws. Is it just my impression, or have a good many people connected with the spaghetti western genre died within the last two years?
Yes, they are dropping like flies .
