[quote=“Silver Wolf, post:25, topic:788”]That was Peter Lee Lawrence. He was discussed on SWWB some moths ago. I don’t remember any discussion about Berger’s death.
I’m interested which Lawrence SWs were reviewed in that book and why they all got 0/4. Most of his westerns were shot in Spanish locations with at least average scripts and budgets which alone would make them better than the most miserable genre films of the 70s. He’s not one of my favorite actors but he has at least few great and memorable roles and he made many giallo-westerns which always seem to work for me. My rating for Lawrence westerns I’ve seen.
Killer Adios … 4.5 out of 5 - the best giallo western ever!
Killer Caliber .32 … 3.5 out of 5 - good giallo western, propably Lawrence’s best role (as Silver). Brescia’s best film.
Days of Violence … 2 out of 5 - below average standard westerns from trash maestro Alfonso Brescia
The Man Who Killed Billy the Kid … ? - don’t remember much about this…
Pistol for a Hundred Coffins … 2 out of 5 - slow-moving SW with overrated horror scenes
Garringo … 4 out of 5 - one of the best for both Steffen and Lawrence. R.R. Marchent’s best IMO
Awkward Hands … 3.5 out of 5 - strage westerns with kung fu movie -styled traning sequences
Raise Your Hands, Dead Man, You’re Under Arrest … 2 out of 5 - cheap and stupid comedy western
God in Heaven… Arizona on Earth … 3.5 out of 5 - typical but well-made film, director’s best IMO
More Dollars for the MacGregors … ? - again, don’t remember much, maybe I should re-watch this
Fury of Johnny Kid … I have Spanish tape (cut/short version), haven’t watched it yet.[/quote]
Stanton we are still WAITING for you to ANSWER Silver Wolf’s QUESTIONS to you which he put to you days ago. Good manners require a full answer +comments.
He asked you quite clearly about your “mysterious” German “book” which you claim
gives 0/4 (a totally silly rating). We are also waiting for your comments in answer
to his points and ratings he gives for PETER LEE LAWRENCE SWs which he liked a lot.
My ANSWERS to your latest posting :
You say you are “NOT proud” of PETER LEE LAWRENCE, German WINNETOU fillms ???
You say you are “NOT interested in actors” >:( , but in “directors” but "NOT their fame
People will ask what are you doing on a SW Fan Forum if you dont like actors or the
Sws but are only interested in “directors” ? You are clearly wasting your time and
everybody else’s time on the forum.
Do you think that SW fans want (like you) to watch some wrinkly, hunched, decrepit
old director on the SCREEN ? Or do you think they might PREFER PETER LEE LAWRENCE
Or CLINT EASTWOOD or ROSALBA NERI ?
The GERMAN WINNETOU Films are “extremely popular” as you said and extremely
GREAT in all departments as were the Karl May books.
If you liked them as a child why not now ? Are you now in 2007 into some of the
RECENT RUBBISH type films with swearing every 2 sentences ?
Or are you into the gutter type “arty” thrashy Rainer Werner Fassbinder or Herzog ?
That sort of dull, lurid, corruptive stuff we can all do without .
ALFRED VOHRER HARALD PHILIPP HARALD REINL
Are 3 of the GREATEST, most creative, popular German directors what is your problem?
Then you complain that watching too many SWs 250 and “so many bad films” ??
I mean you clearly are on the WRONG FORUM because as you have said you Stanton
DO NOT “like” PLL or “any actors” or “any directors FAME” well that is MISERABLE :’(
I therefore conclude you only like the twisted critics choices abysmal , overpraised
THRASH like : brokeback mountain, das boot, the full monty, fassbinder/herzog :’(
ALFONSO BRESCIA is a director of many great, well acted/directed SWs. Fidani is Ok.
These Nic Ray/Elia kazan/George Stevens have NOT made even 1 Sw but have made
many many dull, dreary dramas to put everybody to sleep. Some good films too.
You betray yourself again in mentioning these directors and condemming Sws directors
We are ON A SW FORUM !! Not a boring drama/comedy/talk Forum of bad directors.
I am NOT anything “offense” I am VERY OFFENDED by your lack of any pride for
GERMAN GREAT Classic Films/Actors and For Outstanding Spaghetti Westerns.
You are not “funny” at all because you said you do NOT like actors, Sws or directors
and their famous films. It is better if you kept such nonsensically bad opinions quiet.
I on the other hand LOVE/LIKE many many many SWs, German Stars/Directors :
DAYS OF VIOLENCE 1968 is a magnificently acted/directed, cruel, tense Spaghetti it
is AS GOOD as any Ray/Kazan/Stevens Films and BETTER still, it is OUT on KOCH DVD.
PETER LEE LAWRENCE was a GERMAN like you, he left his country as a young man
he struggled to earn a living , learnt to speak Italian, trained to become a top leading
actor and was so successful and popular in Italy/Spain/Europe with MILLIONS OF FANS.
PETER LEE LAWRENCE was so popular and successful that he MADE 17 QUALITY SWs
which is more than most Sws actors except the late Great ANTHONY STEFFEN.
PETER LEE LAWRENCE was handsome, tall, expressive sensitive talented actor, heroic
and he had superb chemistry with his leading ladies. He died at 29 , making 30 films.
That is a LEGENDARY CLASSIC LIFE STORY and I am extremely proud of him and I am
Not a German but am certainly more “patriotic” and “caring” than you seem to be.
No offence but you dont “like actors” so what is the purpose of your presence here ??
What we see and love on screen is the ACTORS and the ACTRESSES and the STORY.
We dont have a fetish fixation for “directors” and then not their “fame” thats crazy.
Answer Silver Wolf’s questions and his comments so you dont offend him too.
