That's a nice flyer Mike, i know it's only a knock up but you should remember to stick the G in Castellari's name.

When me and Paul met him i asked him if he prefered to be called Enzo Castellari or Enzo Girolami and he replied with a big smile on his face "Enzo G Castellari", emphasising the G ::)

Thanks, Jonny and Tanzi.

but you should remember to stick the G in Castellari's name.

When me and Paul met him i asked him if he prefered to be called Enzo Castellari or Enzo Girolami and he replied with a big smile on his face "Enzo G Castellari", emphasising the G ::)

Good catch. It's funny, I knew Enzo's pop was Girolami/Martinelli, and I of course knew Enzo was usually billed with the "G," but for some reason my brain never made the connection to think of him as "Enzo Girolami Castellari."

I dropped the initial for space considerations on my design, thinking most of the slicker, wheel-and-deal producers at Cannes wouldn't read much below Saxon's name anyway!

Here's a little unofficial, mock-up artwork for the project. The guy at Cannes needed something visual, so I dummied this up.




Mike, I hope we'll be able to score the dvd...

Congratulations...glad that a fan is getting the opportunity to make something like this.

Looking forward to it.

The doc recently bagged an intvw with actor John P. Dulaney, who was Tomas Milian's sidekick in five of the Nico Giraldi movies: COP IN BLUE JEANS, HIT SQUAD, SWINDLE, LITTLE ITALY and ASSASSINIO SUL TEVERE.

He also supported Franco Nero in HITCH HIKE and played a deleted role in Damiani's GOODBYE & AMEN.

The high-backed chair is unfortunate, but otherwise it looks and sounds great for the circumstances under which it was shot:


Here's Dulaney as the Nico Giraldi sidekick, "Ballarin," in HIT SQUAD:

Most recent interviewee: Michael Forest, who despite being an on-camera performer in previous decades, was mainly an English-language dubber during the Eurocrime craze of the '70s.

And oh, man, what a dubber he was -- voicing Luc Merenda (in THE VIOLENT PROFESSIONALS), Fabio Testi (in THE BIG RACKET, THE HEROIN BUSTERS and GO, GORILLA) and Maurizio Merli (in too many films to list but VIOLENT NAPLES and ROME ARMED TO THE TEETH to name a couple). He was the signature Merli voice!

Plenty of other voices too (Frank Wolff in MILANO CALIBRE 9 springs to mind).



It was another fabulous interview shoot in L.A. -- photographed by the talented Mike Martinez (he's the filmmaker who gave Gordon Mitchell his final screen appearance).

Wow, I love that guy, his voice is perfect for Maurizio Merli.

Amazing stuff Mike!  ;)

Looks like Michael was on good form too, is he doing a Merli voice into a tape recorder in that last shot?

That's just a prop standing in for something else. All will be revealed soon. I hope it comes off as fun as I intended...

Thanks, guys. I'll try not to disappoint!

Check this thread in a few days; hopefully we will have added yet another interviewee by then, and this one's a big'n'!
