Best Bud Spencer movies

bud spencer movies

The recent fmeeting last Monday, June 27, of Bud Spencer It took Terence Hill by surprise, who was curiously in Almería. It could not be otherwise. The city that he shared so many times with his best-known artistic partner in the 70s to the 80s.

In Almería, where Terence Hill has declared to be excited, devastated after the loss of their best friend, they shot together You forgive ... I don't (1967) The four crooks (1968) y The hill of boots'(1969), a trilogy by Giuseppe Colizzi. But there were many more titles ...

Carlo Pedersoli, who was his real name, passed away last Monday at the age of 86. His son has related: «Dad left calmly at 18:15. He did not suffer, he had us all close to him and his last word was 'thank you'.

Who was? How was it?

A physical wonder. He was almost two meters tall, weighed over 140 kilos and he smiled very easily.. He himself admitted that he had never been a good actor. Any undemanding film critic will claim that Carlo Pedersoli never had a talent for wandering the interpretive roads. But it did not matter: where his talent did not reach his presence reached; and he never walked through the cinema, but knew how to conquer the screen with his fists.

But long before the character of Bud Spencer, Perdersoli already had an interesting life. Born in Naples in 1929, his family emigrated to South America in 1947, forcing him to abandon the Chemistry career, which had started very early due to its ease in studies.

Even so, yese graduated in law and learned to speak 6 different languages.

Ready He would stand out for his swimming skills. In 1950 he became the first Italian swimmer to get off the minute in the 100-meter freestyle (he was seven times national champion of that distance), and won several medals in different Mediterranean Games.

Already in the Helsinki 1952 and Melbourne 1956 Olympic Games In addition to swimming alone, he was part of the water polo team of his country, which reached the semifinals in both championships, and also competed in that sport in those of Rome in 1960.

Legend has it that it was in the pool where he would meet another good swimmer named Mario Girotti. Years later, each would adopt a different name, and Girotti would take Terence Hill.

In his filmography 17 films with Terence Hill and another 20 solo.

His beginnings in the cinema

I enter through the front door of the cinema like soldier of the Roman Empire, in the mythical "Quo Vadis". It was the year 1950.

His first appearance with Terence Hill was in 1967, in the film "You forgive ... me me." But his first success came in 1971 with "They called him Trinidad", a film that would mark the path that later both would follow in many subsequent titles.

His style was a humorous cinema with Massive fights based on loud smacks, punches and acrobatics, especially from Terence Hill. They were the perfect combination. Spencer put the brutality of his physique, his rough character, and Terence Hill was the perfect rogue, bold and manipulative.

Where did you get the name Bud Spencer? It seems that it was in 1967, in a mix of one of his favorite actors, Spencer Tracy, with the beer of the brand "Bud".

Among his many skills was music. In many of the films he made as an actor, he composed the soundtrack and the songs that were played in them. In 1981 he founded the cargo airline Mistral Air, which now belongs to the Italian Post.

The wonderful stage with Terence Hill

The collaboration between the two begins in 1967 and ends in 1994. Together they would shoot 17 films.
