He sounds a lot like Orson Welles. Except his Pillsbury Doughboy, which sounds frighteningly like Truman Capote.

Thanks for this, Peacemaker. O0

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.

So if it was Frees voice? did he do the acting voice then? So you have to ask yourself one question? Do you like the Indo/Ramon character in the English version, because of Frees voice (Or whoever dubbed the voice) or because of Volontes  acting????


Pablo

For me, it was the voice that made me love it.

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.

It's quite odd, because on the commentary for Fistful he says that Volonte was dubbed but did his own dialogue phonetically for the next film. Did he not think it suspicious that Volonte sounds exactly the same in both films?

Frayling has made a few minor mistakes but overall a much better and interesting commentator than Sickel. (not sure if I spelled that right)

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.

Or perhaps he was referring to the Italian version and confused it with the English dub.

So it wasn't him after all? Maybe it was Bernard Grant as was proposed on the original thread here. Can someone please merge these please?
