Richard Harrison


  1. Clint Eastwood, Per un pugno di dollari/A Fistful of Dollars, Italy-Spain-West Germany, 1964.    
  2. Frederick Stafford, Furia à Bahia pour OSS 117 (US: OSS 117: Mission For A Killer), France-Italy, 1965.  Kerwin Matthews had become too expensive for French pockets after two OSS 117 films about Jean Bruce’s secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath. Réalisateur André Hunebelle (surprisingly old at 68 for modern spy romps) looked over other Americans moonlighting in Europe – Harrison, Lex Barker, Ken Clark, George Nader – and chose the wooden Frederick Stafford when Ray Danton was a better actor and Sean Flynn better looking. Certainly, the Czech-born Stafford was the only OSS 117 to work for Hitchcock – proving just as wooden in Topaze, 1969. And to think, Hitch once thought John Gavin wooden in Psycho.
