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 love this guy's voice. He did great work in these films.

That's what Frayling says in the commentary.
I highly doubt that.

I seriously doubt it too, unless he dubbed other actors in films he wasn't even in as well. Roll Eyes

His name was Paul Frees.

He was also the voice of the "Burgermeister Meisterburger" in Rankin/Bass' Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.  Smiley

Thanks! The mystery has been solved.

I noticed that he also did the voice on Twice Upon a Time, an unknown animated movie that I LOVED when I was a kid.

He was the Burgermeister??? "Zere'll be no more toy makers to ze king!"  Wow!  Thanks for discovering his name.  What an incredibly talented man, and what a shame his work usually went uncredited.  Thanks for the information!
