Oh my god. What terrible news. He was in some of my favorite films. Rest in peace brother.

Sad news indeed !

Very sad… Just noticed today that Verita Note is releasing one of the Kommisar X soundtracks on cd so had just thought of him.


(Chris_Casey) #8

Truly sad!
I love those Kommissar X movies and one of the many Westerns he did Una pistola per cento croci!, is a solid personal favorite.

RIP, Tony…many thanks!

He was great in Whip and the Body, Return of the Evil Dead, and The Lorely’s Grasp.

Fuck.

Sheesh, I just read about Paul Naschy and then saw this.

I’ve always thought he looked a tad like George Cooney. The two-toned hair was something of a unique look among Spaghetti leads. One of my very favorite junk Spaghettis is Carlo Croccolo’s Gunmen for One Hundred Crosses. It opens with a great close-up of his chisled face. Nice.

Never noticed this, but, when you say it…

By the way, I always use to say the George Clooney looks like my father!

Very sad news. Always thought it was a shame he wasn’t in more westerns. Weirdly, a couple of days ago i ordered the Kommissar X box set from Amazon.


(Phil H) #17

Do let us know what the quality of that set is like, Silver.


(Silver) #18

Will do. Just mentioned in another thread that it doesn’t seem that quality is going to be very good at all though!


(Col. Douglas Mortimer) #19

Actually the quality is pure shit and the DVD cover is awful. Just some generic picture of chicks holding guns.

But regardless I’m sure you’ll still enjoy the films!
