Is he the best American actor in Italian Crime Films?  :)

How about Richard Conte or Woody Strode? You tell me!

Was Jack Palance in more than Mister Scarface?

Henry was very enjoyable

He was also in Cop in Blue Jeans (Squadra Antiscippo by Bruno Corbucci). There may be others that I don't know about. Perhaps Mr. Scarface was such a good movie he deserves to be counted.  ::)

Jack Palance was also in Alfonso Brescia's 'Knell,the Bloody Avenger' (Sangue di sbirro) alongside George Eastman.

Well that's a question of personal taste,i think they were all good and brought something different to every film.

I guess it would depend on the movie but there is just something about Silva that makes him stand out in the stuff he does. When I watch movies and see Silva I am like THERE HE IS with his un-mistakable face and tough guy acting abilities he stands high above the rest of the American actors in my opinion.

There were quite a few decent American actors in Italian genre flicks - the most obvious being Clint Eastwood, but what about Burt Reynolds, Martin Balsam, John Saxon and so on? The list could run and run. As much as I enjoy Silva as a "presence" in these films, he's definitely lacking acting ability  :D

Okay, ignore Eastwood and Reynolds but Balsam and Saxon were in crime films, eh?
