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.

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.

Never heard of that Bernard ''Bernie'' Grant before...


Though we seem to agree it is the same guy that did the voice for Morton in OUATITW?

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 but I would likes some official confirmation of the run-time. The US and German DVDs show the 118min version.

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.

I've heard the same thing about there being two dubs.

I've heard of multiple dubs for Bullet For the General myself. That's not what I'm questioning at all, merely the identification of the dubber and the veracity of "dude on SWWB" as a source.

Just that the international dub of ABFTG  has the same voice actor that did Volonte in AFOD & FAFDM.

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.

Your post is probably more relevant here where there was some debate about who the English-language, not Italian-language, dubber was.
