Mario Adorf

  1. Ralf Wolter, One, Two, Three, 1961.  But, but, spluttered Adorf, this man… what  is he called… ah, yes… simply The Third Russian (!)… but he has no lines. Nothing to say! Not for me, thank you Herr Wilder.    And so the German giant did not join James Cagney, Horst Buchholz and Pamela Tiffin in Billy Wilder’s fast-talking comedy. “The film had a strange history, of course,” reports my German film expert Gerhard Midding, “a film maudit in the Wilder catalogue,  never included in retrospectives, etc.  Then, it was  re-released in Germany in the 80s and became a huge hit ” Adorf happily reported for duty in Wilder’s penultimate film, Fedora, 16 years later.  With plenty of lines!

  2. Emilio Fernández, The Wild Bunch, 1968.

  3. Lenny Montana, The Godfather, 1971. 

  4. Paul Hittscher, Fitzcarraldo, 1982.    Once filming re-started after Jason Robards' illness,  Swiss star decided to quit.  He was, after all, Germany's busiest star - 188 screen roles  in  54 years.
