One of the most famous and distinctive supporting actors and stuntman has passed away. Whether as a sauce-loving devil, as a sailor fighting side by side with Bud or as an acrobatic racket who likes to cling to Buds back, every fan likes to remember Roberto Dell'Acqua with a smile. He made his first appearance in the Spencer/Hill universe in 1969 in the saloon brawl of "Boot Hill". In a saloon he also had his last appearance, as a bean-eating guest he was 49 years later in the bar brawl of "My Name is Thomas". We say thank you very much for your great performances, rest in peace, Roberto!
Last weekend there were four great concerts at the Spencer/Hill-Festival in Lommatzsch. Like for many years the "Spencer Hill Magic Band" from Hungary and the "Dune Buggy Band" from Italy inspired the audience. But this year there were also two more great concerts by the original composers of the film music. On Friday evening Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, also known as "Oliver Onions", presented some of their greatest hits, on Saturday evening Carmelo and Michelangelo La Bionda did the same. Both brother pairs brought a great atmosphere among the fans. We made short summaries for both concerts. Have fun!
On 13 September an exhibition about the life of Bud Spencer opens in Naples (we reported). On this occasion, in October there will be the opportunity to go on a seven-day bus trip to Naples with other fans. On the way we will visit a few more stations from the life and work of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill. The trip starts on October 13 in Berlin and ends there on October 19. The way to Naples leads via South Tyrol (filming location "Un passo dal cielo"), Pomponesco (filming location "Don Camillo"), Ponte Taro (Via Carlo Pedersoli), Marina Di Pisa (filming location "They called him Bulldozer", "Bomber"), Livorno (Bud-Spencer-Statue), Amelia (Gelateria Girotti) and Spoleto (filming location "Don Matteo"). In Spoleto the shooting of the 12th season of Don Matteo is still going on at the time of the trip, so that there might be the possibility to watch a bit from a distance. In Naples there is of course a lot more to see besides the Bud Spencer exhibition, because there were shot many scenes from the flatfoot series with Bud Spencer. We wish all fellow travelers a lot of fun!
From today, Spencer/Hill fans have the opportunity to join the Spencer/Hill fan base. The fanbase is a fanclub whose goal is to provide its members special events and discounts around the universe of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill. The first event is a bus trip to Naples planned for October. In May 2020, there will also be another fanbase party in the western city of "El Dorado". The membership costs 49 Euro for one year. The membership must be renewed every year. It will be not renewed automatically.
Included in the fee are a club shirt, a club card, a club brand, discounted admission to the fanbase party for yourself and one accompanying person, 100 Euro discount when booking your trip to Naples, two issues of the Spencer/Hill fan magazine "Double Trouble", free access to the VIP stage at the Spencer/Hill Festival and much more.
And that's not all: The film composers won't be the only stars at the festival this weekend. Terence Hill's son Jess will also be on site and will have the ice cream from the Italian family gelateria in his luggage. From Bud Spencer's family, Bud's daughter Cristiana will be present to present her new book My Papa Bud and also the two already beloved regular guests Riccardo "Jeff" Pizzuti and Salvatore "Anulu" Borgese will be there again of course, as well as the two protagonists from They called him SpencerMarcus Zölch and Jorgo Papasoglou. In terms of star power, this fan meeting surpasses anything that has been seen before.
Besides Guido and Maurizio De Angelis and La Bionda, the "Spencer Hill Magic Band" from Hungary and their Italian colleagues from the "Dune Buggy Band" will again provide the live music this year. The world champion of card tricks Jan Logemann will amaze the fans, there will be a shuttle to the Terence Hill museum, Spencer/Hill movies almost around the clock, a Ferris wheel, a pinball hall with almost 100 pinball machines, countless competitions and prize draws and of course lots of delicious food and drinks and much more good mood.
Tickets for the festival can still be ordered online. But there will also be a box office. The ticket for the whole weekend is valid from Thursday to Sunday and costs 69 Euro. The ticket for Saturday only costs 59 Euro. See you there!
Besides shooting Don Matteo 12, Terence Hill has found the time for a small guest appearance in a music video. In a new video by Italian singer and comedian Fabio Rovazzi for the song "Senza pensieri" Terence Hill suddenly appears in a desert to pick up the singer. The song is a satirical critique of the consumer and internet behaviour of many young people who have nothing to do but buy things they don't need, post pictures in different outfits and need a credit to stay cool. But they have no problems and no worries as long as they don't think and as long as they have the right outfit for global warming. Obviously Terence Hill could identify with this message and therefore supported the artist through his participation. After 5 minutes and 31 seconds, Terence Hill appears in the video. Have fun!
About a year ago we reported that Bud's hometown Naples would like to dedicate an exhibition to her famous son Bud Spencer. Last year the show was cancelled at short notice, but now it should come true. From September 13th to December 8th, fans from all over the world will have the chance to see the multimedia exhibition about Bud Spencer. It can be seen in the Doric Hall (Sala Dorica) of the Museum in the Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace) in the Piazza del Plebiscito. With the exception of Wednesday, the museum will be open every day from 10 am to 8 pm.
Last weekend Terence Hill's son Jess was in Germany together with his son Will. On Sunday morning they visited the Terence Hill Museum in Lommatzsch and in the evening they were guests at a Spencer/Hill film screening as part of the Filmnächte am Elbufer in Dresden. There, Jess announced that the Hill family's ice cream would also be available in Germany from August 3. From this date it will be available in the restaurants of the Wenzel Prager Bierstuben. Currently there have restaurants in Dresden, Chemnitz, Zwickau, Leipzig, Halle, Magdeburg and Warnemünde. In addition, a real store of Gelateria Girotti will open in Dresden towards the end of the year. Jess has promised to come to the opening again.
Jess Hill, son of Terence Hill and producer of his last movie My name is Thomas, gave an interview to the Italian time "Dipiù" last week. There he told that his father will be in a film, that he will produce after finishing the shooting of Don Matteo 12. The new film will be set in Germany, where Terence and Bud have always been loved. The project is currently still in the planning phase. We are very interested to see how the project develops and of course we keep you up to date.
On June 20th the Italian label Digitmovies releases the soundtrack of Guido und Maurizio De Angelis to the Terence Hill western Man of the East (... e poi lo chiamarono il Magnifico) on CD and LP. The CD is a new edition of the CD version of 2009 from the same company. On LP the soundtrack was only available on the original LP from 1972. The tracklist of the new LP corresponds to the release from 1972, but the new edition contains some bonus tracks that didn't make it to the LP at that time. Due to lack of space the LP contains eight tracks less than the CD.
Our ambition with this database is to create a comprehensive data collection about the movies of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill and his actors. After a lot of work, we can say now, that all movies of Bud and Terence are in the database.
We examined the data of this database carefully, but there is no claim of completeness. We always try to keep the data correct and up to date. If you found a mistake or if you like to work with us on upgrading the data, please send us an e-mail or write a comment in our guestbook. Approval or criticism are always welcome.
