I think Edward Mannix was the chap I was referring to in my last post. He dubs the voice for both main policemen in DEATH CARRIES A CANE and SEVEN BLOOD-STAINED ORCHIDS, which I watched back-to-back last night.
Yeah, that's Mannix, who I think had a great tough guy voice that made him ideal to dub seasoned police inspectors and the like. He dubbed Bud Spencer in several films and also did a lot of anime. One of my favorites among his dubbing work is his rather brief part doing the voice of the cop who catches Ian McCulloch and Tisa Farrow aboard the boat in ZOMBIE - going "same old story, eh?" Love that part! He also did Robert Kerman in CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and CANNIBAL FEROX, Sacha Pitoëff in INFERNO, Francisco Rabal in NIGHTMARE CITY, Donal O'Brien in ZOMBI HOLOCAUST, Paul Smith in PIECES, Vic Morrow in THE BRONX WARRIORS etc. He's one of the all-time greats IMO.
And I really enjoyed that Nick Alexander interview! I don't read The Dark Side so I was new to this one. I have, however, read interviews with him in both Jay's Eaten Alive book and also in the Profondo Argento book. All very enjoyable! He seemed like a great guy with plenty of interesting stories, and I'm sad he's no longer with us.
Like you point out, bronxwarriors1990, Alexander often dubs tiny, secondary characters. I guess this was because he was more interested in directing and organizing the dubbing than in doing voices. However, I've really enjoyed the films where he dubbed bigger parts.
In addition to his Al Cliver dubs, I fondly remember him dubbing the following:
Romano Puppo in STREET LAW (1974)
Antonio Casale in SILENT ACTION (1975) and SYNDICATE SADISTS (1975)
Gianni Dei in THE LAST ROUND (1976)
Robert Hundar in THE CYNIC, THE RAT, THE FIST (1977)
Vincenzo Crocitti in TO BE TWENTY (1978)
Biagio Pelligra in FROM CORLEONE TO BROOKLYN (1979)
Gino Milli in TERROR EXPRESS (1979)
The guy who plays 'Cliff' in ALIEN 2 – ON EARTH (1980)
Ennio Girolami in THE LAST SHARK (1981)
Rocco Lerro in 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS (1982)
Maurizio Merli in NOTTURNO (1982)
Suleyman Turhan in ARK OF THE SUN GOD (1983)
Ivan Rassimov in RAIDERS OF THE ATLANTIS (1983)
Franco Trevisi in PHENOMENA (1985)
Stelio Candelli in DEMONS (1985)
Lamberto Bava in DEMONS 2 (1986)
Gordon Mitchell in BLOOD DELIRIUM (1988)
Daniele Aldrovani (the Marty Feldman lookalike) in DINNER WITH A VAMPIRE (1988)
Can anyone think of any other big roles dubbed by Nick Alexander?
