Glad I could help!  I'd wondered about that amazing voice for a long time myself.

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

Frayling says (in the FISTFUL dvd commentary) that he dubbed his own voice in FAFDM. Volonte didn't speak English and worked phonetically.
Always thought Indio had the best dubbing of all the Italians.

Volonte did NOT dub his own voice. It was Paul Frees.

Frayling said that contractrually he was required to dub phonetically, doesn't mean that didn't  try and they said forget it if it was lousy and went with Frees. no?

But it was Paul Frees.

Compare Ramone's voice, the captain's voice, and Morton's voice to El Indio.


They're all the same.

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.

As he has a brother doing his same trade and just as famous I wrote Carlo instead of Aldo Giuffrè. Pardon me, Aldo.

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.
