Title: Volonte's voice & Voice Actor for the Captain in GBU
Post by: tokyorose on June 30, 2007, 08:10:02 PM
Is the actor who dubbed the English lines for the drunken Union Captain the same one who provided the voice for Gian Maria Volonte in A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More?  They certainly all sound like the same man, just without the Spanish accent in GBU.  Does anyone know this man's name?  Whoever he is, he's marvellous.  He brings tremendous character and depth to his performances, and he matches the screen actors' mouths so well I often forget the lines are dubbed.  Of all of the dubbing voice actors in the Dollars Trilogy, I'd say he's the best.

The voice actor does good acting but I think it's notably out of sync. Still, my favorite supportive role in the movie.

Yes, he was also GMV. And he was also Morton (Gabriele Ferzetti) in OUATITW. He's got a very memorable voice, however despite many attempts at searching we've not been able to track down who he is.

I want to add some news about Carlo Giuffrè (who was playing the Union captain). He recently reminished about GBU and revealed that when playing opposite Eastwood couldn't understand a single word of what he was saying, of course, as he doesn't speak english. Also, it is (for italians) slightly paradoxical that Giuffrè, a neapolitan by birth and raising, i.e. a southern man, was playing a "northern" captain.

Peace, I was just reiterating what you had been saying.

Did Signior Giuffre have anything else to say, or is there a place we can read it? I understand from my readings he was a comedian or something like that.

That's why he was great in the role of a drunkman,having that stupid expression on his face all the time.

Post by: titoli on July 09, 2007, 09:34:28 AM
I can't find the link to the Giuffrè interview. Anyway in another forum a contributor said a pair of things Giuffrè told him about the movie. I made a mistake going by memory: Giuffrè didn't understand what Eastwood said not because of the language but because he spoke too softly. ALso, he didn't seem to walk steadily not only because he played a drunk but because his boots were too tight. He also confirmed the story about the explosion.
Always in the same thread, somebody talked with Puppo who revealed (not going into particulars) about Eastwood's womanizing in his days off.

His name was Paul Frees.

A guy called Anonymous at SWWB thinks the following:

Quote
Bernard Grant was the voice for Volonte in both FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE.
He was also the voice for Aldo Sambrell in NAVAJO JOE.

Quote
Voice talent records do not show Paul Frees as doing the voice for Volonte in the US English version of BULLET FOR THE GENERAL. They do, however, show Grant as the voice actor. And it is obvious that it is the same voice as used in the Leone films.

Paul Frees - the voice of Ludwig von Drake and Boris Badenov ???
Title: Volontè's voice
Post by: titoli on July 28, 2009, 04:14:54 PM
In the italian version he's dubbed again by Gazzolo (you couldn't care less, of course). Frayling says in his dvd comment that he dubs himself phonetically for the english one. Which only goes to show that he never heard Volontè speak.
Title: Re: Voice Actor for the Captain
Post by: Dust Devil on July 29, 2009, 01:33:31 AM

See, the guy who did the voice for Volonte in Bullet For the General - at least the DVD I saw - was markedly different from GMV's voice with Leone. I don't know what the clown on the SWWB is talking about.

There are two English audio versions of Bullet for the General. The US R1 release has only the original while the German R2 release has both. This is from Chris Casey at the SWDB forum:

Quote
Around 1968, when the film was picked up for American distribution, the distributors (like myself) found the International English dubbing to be very poor, very blandly delievered, and completely unexciting.  So, they called for a new English language dubbing job and they hired the same company that had done the English language versions of the Dollars films.   In this second English language version (which is what I am guessing you are calling the "new" dub, Sebastian)...the great thing is that Volonte is dubbed by the same voice actor, Bernard Grant, that did his voice in the Dollars films (no, Volonte's own voice was never used in the English language versions of Leone's films..regardless of what stories you might have read, or heard).

Also, apparently a 135min cut was shown at the 2004 Venice Film Festival (http://www.mostradelcinemadivenezia.tv/2004/it/articolo.php?a=28) but I would likes some official confirmation of the run-time. The US and German DVDs show the 118min version.

Title: Re: Voice Actor for the Captain
Post by: Novecento on July 29, 2009, 08:19:02 AM
Is this a reputable source?

Which one?

1. I own the German Koch media DVD and it definitely does have both English audio tracks. The newer one is certainly the better of the two and I remember Volonte sounding much like Volonte in the Dollars movies although I never took the time to properly confirm it myself.

2. Well, the Venice film festival is reputable but the site I have linked to is the "non-official" site so there is a possibility that the run-time may be wrong.

See http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Paul_Frees

Paul Frees dubbed many Italian actors in Spaghetti Westerns, most notably Gian Maria Volonte  in A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More and actor Aldo Giuffrè the alcoholic Union Army captain in the Sergio Leone film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in 1966....and Gabriele Ferzetti's Mr. Morton character in Once Upon a Time in the West .

Frees also voiced Boris Badenoff, Ludwig von Drake, and the Pillsbury doughboy.

I remember mentioning Paul Frees' as the voice of the Union Captain in GBU (for the English dub naturally) and somebody shot me down claiming I was wrong.
I forget if it was here or on IMDB.
Frees also voiced the narrator ("Ghost Host") in the Haunted Mansion attractions at both Disneyland and Disneyworld.
I think Vincent Price voiced the one in Paris for a short time but then they switched to a French speaker.

I personally like his voice more than Orson Welles because of the range he has. Welles's voice remains consistent.

Actually I'm not 100% sure Frees was the Spaghetti voice we all know and love. I'd have to hear from the other guy who was claimed to be the "real" voice. He did at least two characters in The Big Gundown that I remember, too.

Indio's character was certainly enhanced by the vocal mannerisms used such as the "H'mm! H'mm! A waste of time." but this was driven by Volonte's body language so it is a case of the two aspects complementing each other to great effect.

Maybe he watches the film in Italian with the dub titles on?

Sir Chris sometimes fails to put two and two together. The fact that Volonte may have recorded dialogue doesn't mean that that dialogue was actually used, and obviously it wasn't. Frayling may have his facts straight, but he has made an erroneous assumption.

although Frayling has stated that GMV did the vox in FAFDM, i don't think so.
too similar to FOD and the captain in GBU.

here's a link, go about 45 seconds in (by the way I'm referring to the ORIGINAL english dubbed voice (in this clip below)- the movie was redubbed into english again in the 90's by new voice actors)

I think it is the same voice artiste who dubbed for Groggy in FAFDM also dubbed for the hotelier with heart condition in GBU.

Again, it pains me to say it but it is fairly obvious that these voices are all done by the same person, and that person is not He.

Further evidence is in other films GMV has done where his actual voice is used (e.g Circle Rouge - with Alain Delon, an excellent film btw!)
I also saw an Italian film with him in it and to be honest he has a fairly high pitched tone, or at least in comparison to "his voice" in FAFDM.

I too was initially gutted when that occurred to me as the rumbling baritone certainly suits a character as emotionally and morally abstract (and downright psychopathic) as Indio. However, just enjoy the method acting and you'll soon get past this initial disappointment.

Concerning Volonte's English voice:

I went to that 2009 thread and checked the source for this on page 3 (http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Paul_Frees) and that no longer lists Frees for the spaghetti westerns, so likely was updated.  So I can believe that Bernard Grant was the voiceover actor for English.

I disagree. I watched a clip of Volonte in Circle Rouge. He is speakly softly, but the voice sounds the same to me.  He SOUNDS like Indio to me...
