2023-03-29 - 7:14 am - Happy Birthday Terence Hill!
The head of the new Don Matteo figure We congratulate acting legend Terence Hill to his 84th birthday today and wish him much happiness, success, fun and of course continued health for the coming years! We are looking forward to the new movie he wants to shoot this year and hope very much that there will soon be an opportunity to meet him in person, because he is not only a great actor, but first and foremost a great person! All the best, Terence!

In honor of his birthday, the Bud Spencer Museum in Berlin will unveil a new life-like figure today featuring Terence Hill in his longest-running role as Don Matteo. Berlin-based artist Lisa Büscher hand-sculpted the lifelike figure out of silicone, recreating the original down to the smallest detail with tens of thousands of manually placed hairs.
2023-03-17 - 6:30 pm - New Western: Terence Hill returns as Trinity!

New western with Terence Hill: Trinity, the Nun and the Gun

Today, an interview with Terence Hill was published in the Italian weekly newspaper "7", which belongs to the "Corriere della sera". In this interview Terence Hill talks about his next film. He has already said that the next film will be a western. Now he is giving more details.

The film will be a Trinity film, i.e. Terence Hill will return to his role as Trinity! The international working title of the film is "Trinity, the Nun and the Gun".

Regarding the titular nun, he says: "I didn't want to do another western. I thought it was pointless, I had already done everything and couldn't do it better. But then I found a book with the true story of an Italian nun who emigrated with her peasant and very poor family from the Ligurian hinterland to America at the end of the 19th century. From Cincinnati she decided to go west alone. The nun in the film is called Blandina, her real name was Rosa Maria Segale."

The gun in the title refers to Billy, the Kid because the nun Blandina actually met Billy the Kid in her life. In the film, she will do the same and Trinity and Billy, the Kid will also meet.

On the progress of the project, he says: "We've been working on the script for 18 months, as usual with various difficulties. I hope to go for shooting to Abruzzo in the summer. I'm also directing my own spaghetti western of Trinity."

2023-02-14 - 7:31 pm - Exactly 50 years ago, Joe Bugner first fought Ali
Joe Bugner as villain Mr. Ormond Exactly 50 years ago today, British heavyweight boxer Joe Bugner - later Bud Spencer's adversary in films like I'm for the hippopotamus, They called him Bulldozer, The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid and Buddy goes West - fought boxing legend Muhammad Ali in Las Vegas. The fight electrified boxing fans at the time. Ali, who was favoured, only prevailed on points in the end.

The anniversary of this fight prompted the British Sun to contact Bugner in Australia, where he has lived for many years. The attempt to contact him failed, but they did reach his eldest son Joe, Jr. He told the paper that his father was suffering badly from dementia and could not remember anything about his boxing career. During a visit at Christmas time, he himself was not even recognised and, moreover, his father claimed to expect his wife Marlene back from shopping soon. Marlene, however, died more than a year ago. Physically, Bugner is still in top shape and looks much younger than his almost 73 years. Furthermore, his son reports that he had thought about bringing his father back to England, but his carers had strongly advised against taking him out of his familiar environment. Despite this sad news, Joe Jr. is keen to let people know that his father is not unhappy. He lives in his own world, in luxurious accommodation where the staff take excellent care of him.

2022-06-22 - 6:22 pm - Terence Hill receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Terence Hill receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Terence Hill has received another lifetime achievement award in Italy. He was honoured by the non-profit association "Moige". The word stands for "Movimento Italiano Genitori", which translates roughly as "Italian Parents' Movement". Every year, the association evaluates series, shows, but also web and streaming content to see how suitable they are for children and young people and publishes these evaluations in a TV and web guide.

Now the association has decided to award Terence Hill "for his undoubted acting qualities and for the consistency between the characters he plays and the person he is. Never over the top, Terence is always discreet, respectful and decent, able to make what he expresses through his acting believable and worth watching. He is always a source of reflection for family audiences of all ages."

"Moige" released a video today thanking Terence for the award. In it, he recounts a long-ago encounter with a young mother and her two children who recently saw "They call me Trinity" at the cinema. At the time, she asked Terence to continue making such films that she could watch with her children without worry. He has complied. Terence concludes by saying that he misses Italy and will return soon.

Don Matteo says goodbye

On Thursday evening it was time. Terence Hill said goodbye to Italian television viewers after 22 years as Don Matteo. The last episode Così vicini, così lontani (Eng: "So near, so far") was watched by 6.093 million viewers on RAI Uno. The series itself continues next week with a new priest as its successor, but for us it has come to an end at this point. After 259 episodes, a little melancholy set in last night, but every goodbye is also a new beginning. In Italy, Terence Hill's time as Don Matteo has come to an end, but here in Germany it is just beginning this year. It starts in autumn on Bibel TV. We can hardly wait!

2022-03-01 - 4:19 pm - Trailer for the remake of "Watch out, we are mad" released
Preview picture of the trailer As we reported last year, the Italians have made a remake of the Bud Spencer and Terence Hill classic Watch out, we're mad. Now the movie, starring Edoardo Pesce and Alessandro Roia, is ready. Today the theatical trailer was released and on 23 March it will start in Italian cinemas. Although both the music of the fire brigade choir and "Dune Buggy" can be heard in the trailer, the music for this remake is not by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, but by Francesco Cerasi.

It is uncertain whether the film will make it to cinemas in Germany or other countries. However, since Netflix is co-producer, at least a broadcast on the streaming service is not unlikely in the near future.

And now take a look for yourself at what's on offer:

Cover from CD and LP No other soundtrack has Bud Spencer and Terence Hill fans been waiting for as long as the one for the film Watch out, we're mad.

2021-10-28 - 11:37 am - The new album from Oliver Onions is out now!
Cover from the new album Tomorrow is the day. "Future Memorabilia", the new album by Oliver Onions, will finally be released. The brothers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, who form the duo "Oliver Onions", have been in the music business since the 1960s, but only became internationally known when they started composing music for films in 1971. Now, 50 years and over 200 soundtracks for cinema and TV productions later, the brothers present ten of their most popular songs in a new, modern style on their new album.

For the album, Oliver Onions re-sung the Spencer/Hill title songs "Dune Buggy", "Bulldozer" and "Flying through the Air" on their own. For the seven other songs, Guido and Maurizio brought in guest musicians. The version of "Banana Joe" sung with Bud Spencer will be on the album, and also a German-Italian version of the super hit "Santa Maria" sung with Roland Kaiser. For the new version of "Sheriff", the title song from "The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid", the brothers were able to win cult actor and singer David Hasselhoff. In addition, there are several collaborations with artists who are very successful in Italy, such as Tommaso Paradiso (Orzowei), Elio e Le Storie Tese (Coro dei pompieri - the famous fire brigade choir from "Watch out we're mad") and Claudio Baglioni (Sandokan). Baglioni already published his own version of "Sandokan" on his album "Anime in gioco" in 1997 and now sings the song together with Oliver Onions for the first time. This version is accompanied by cellist Tina Guo, who also enriched songs composed by Hans Zimmer with her cello. The album closes with the ballad "We believe in Love", which is sung together with musical singer Elhaida Dani to the melody of "Verde".

The album will be available digitally tomorrow on all known streaming services. For fans and collectors, however, there is also a CD and a limited LP. The CD contains a booklet and five stickers as a bonus. The LP is a yellow record in a sleeve which, when opened, presents a three-dimensional model of the record cover.

Terence Hill waits for the final take Last saturday an era came to an end after 22 years. We had the opportunity to be there in Spoleto, Umbria, when Terence Hill's last take for his hit series Don Matteo was shot in the afternoon in the church of Santa Eufemia. After the emotional last take, the whole crew celebrated their long-time leading actor first spontaneously in the church and later on the forecourt at a champagne reception. Producer Luca Bernabei thanked Terence Hill in a speech and of course Terence Hill thanked the crew afterwards for the great cooperation in the last years. Terence Hill's last day of shooting ended with a group photo of the crew on the cathedral steps of Spoleto. For Hill, this day marked the end of a significant period in his film career after 13 seasons with a total of 259 episodes. However, he is not thinking of retirement now, but will devote himself to new projects with a little distance. Meanwhile, the series "Don Matteo" continues with a successor. We have summarised our impressions of the set and the emotional last take in a small report for the database. Enjoy reading!

2021-08-09 - 10:09 am - Terence Hill is honorary citizen of Pomponesco

Pictures from the award ceremony in Pomponesco

Last Saturday, Terence Hill received a special honour. The small town of Pomponesco named the actor the first honorary citizen of its town history. Terence Hill gave the town national fame in 1983 when he decided to shoot his film Don Camillo here during his directorial debut. A screening of the film was held that evening in the town's central square, Piazza XXIII Aprile (23 April Square). Beforehand, Terence Hill was received by the mayor in the town hall, where he was presented with the certificate of honorary citizenship. Fans of the film are advised to visit the town. Although it is very small, it has hardly changed in the last 40 years, so that even today you have the feeling that Don Camillo could turn up on his motorbike at any moment.

2021-06-29 - 1:15 pm - The life of Bud Spencer as Graphic Novel
Cover of the book In November 2021, a graphic novel about the life of Bud Spencer will be published in Italy. The graphic novel will be drawn by Roberto Lauciello, the texts will be written by Marco Sonseri and the 112-page work will be published by ReNoir Comics. There will also be a foreword by Cristiana, Diamante und Giuseppe Pedersoli.

The publisher writes about the content:
How many actors can say they have had a life as adventurous as that of the characters they have played on screen? Few, very few. Among them, Carlo Pedersoli stands out, an Olympic-level swimmer, truck driver in South America and above all, hero in dozens of films based on humour and fistfights. A happy marriage, a film career that started almost by accident, a few diet attempts and a lot of binge eating. Little Luca meets him on a magical day at an airport and is entranced by his life story. A unique story, funny and fascinating, like those that made Bud Spencer a myth for generations of viewers.

Marvelous Marvin Hagler in Virtual Weapon Former boxer and actor Marvelous Marvin Hagler is dead. Terence Hill fans know Hagler as Hill's partner in the action comedy "Virtual Weapon". He also starred in the Italian action films "Indio" and "Indio 2 - The Revolt" in 1989 and 1990. However, Hagler became internationally known not as an actor but as a professional boxer. Hagler is considered one of the best middleweight boxers of all time. From 1980 to 1987 he was undefeated world champion in this weight category. He won 62 of his 67 professional fights. Yesterday he died unexpectedly at his home in New Hampshire. He was 66 years old.

2021-02-11 - 8:19 am - Happy Birthday Giuseppe Pedersoli!
Giuseppe Pedersoli in Ponte Taro Bud Spencer's son Giuseppe celebrates his 60th birthday today. Giuseppe experienced the atmosphere on film sets at an early age thanks to his father. In 1978, at the age of 17, Giuseppe was seen for the first time in a small role in one of his father's films. In "Odds and even" he played a naval officer. And obviously Giuseppe enjoyed such small appearances, because until 1996 he appeared in nine more of his father's films, including the series "Extralarge" as a ruthless terrorist.

Giuseppe was even more active behind the camera than in front of it. In the 1980s he worked as an assistant director, not only on his father's films such as "Bomber", "Double Trouble" or "Aladdin", but also on Hill's first directorial work "Don Camillo". From 1990 he switched to producing and also wrote scripts for his father. His first production was "Speaking of the Devil". Projects like "Extralarge", "The Troublemakers", "We are angels", "To the Limit" and "Padre Speranza" followed. Giuseppe also provided the idea for Bud's last TV series "I delitti del cuoco". He also produced the series.

In the years following Bud Spencer's first book publication, Giuseppe accompanied his father at several book signings in Germany. Fans also had the chance to see him at the premiere of "Sie nannten ihn Spencer" in Munich or at the inauguration of the first Bud Spencer street in Ponte Taro, Italy (see photo) and also at the opening of the Bud Spencer exhibition in Naples. We were able to meet him on several of these occasions and always found him to be a friendly and approachable person. We congratulate him, wish him all the best for the years to come and hope to meet him again this year in Berlin when the Bud Spencer Museum opens its doors.

The choir from the movie

We've been working on a little Spencer/Hill fan project over the last few days, creating a fan version of the Oliver Onions fire choir video released last week.

We were overwhelmed by how many fans spontaneously and enthusiastically supported us! It was great fun and showed us that the Spencer/Hill community really is one big family. Within just four days we received 48 videos with 77 participants from five different countries. Many thanks for the organisational cooperation to Marcus Zölch, Michael Maaß and Ili Jelusic from Festival Team and Andrea Lucchi! And, of course, just as many thanks to the all of the fans who took part in the project and sent us very funny contributions!

Merry Christmas to all!

Cover motif for the single of the new song Every Spencer/Hill fan knows the famous scene with the firemen's choir from Watch out, we're mad!, in which Bud and Terence try to outwit a professional killer while singing. The soundtrack was written by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis. Now, for Christmas, the two brothers have released a brand new Christmas version of this chorus. The song has been available since Tuesday on all the usual music platforms, such as Spotify, Deezer and Amazon Music. There is also a music video for the new song on Youtube, for which the Onions have received support from many Italian stars. From the Spencer/Hill universe, for example, Kabir Bedi, Jerry Calà, Rita Pavone, Claudia Gerrini and Nino Frassica are involved.

2020-12-14 - 9:12 am - Bodo actor Baldwin Dakile presumed long dead
Flatfoot and Bodo in the South African desert Baldwin Dakile, the actor who played the little boy Bodo in the films Flatfoot in Africa und Flatfoot in Egypt, has probably been dead for many years. At least this is what Neri Parenti, assistant director on "Flatfoot in Africa", reports in his book "Due palle... di Natale", which was recently published in Italy. In it, he tells an anecdote about how it happened that he celebrated Christmas 1977 together with Baldwin and his mother at his family's home in Florence. The very beautyful anecdote ends with Parenti receiving a letter from Baldwin's mother several years later, telling him that her son had been killed in a youth revolt against apartheid oppression.

In his late career Cianfriglia's experience as a stuntman was also in demand for some major productions.

2019-09-16 - 3:22 pm - Actor and stuntman Roberto Dell'Acqua passed away
Picture of Roberto Dell'Acqua 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!

Bus trip to Naples

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!

2019-08-08 - 7:41 pm - Star power at the Spencer/Hill festival

The stars of the festival

It'll start in three weeks. Then the Spencer/Hill world will meet for the 16th time at the Spencer/Hill festival. For the second time the fan meeting takes place in the small Saxon town of Lommatzsch, the hometown of Terence Hill's mother, where little Terence Hill spent two years of his early childhood. This year, the crème de la crème of film composers from the Spencer/Hill universe will gather for the occasion. These are Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, Carmelo and Michelangelo La Bionda and Franco Micalizzi. Together they have contributed music to 33 Bud Spencer and Terence Hill films over the past five decades, including They call me Trinity (Micalizzi, 1970), Trinity is still my name (De Angelis, 1971), Watch out, we're mad (De Angelis, 1974), Odds and evens (De Angelis, 1978), Who finds a friend finds a treasure (La Bionda, 1980), Miami Supercops (La Bionda, 1985) and the title song of Terence Hill's latest film My name is Thomas (Micalizzi, 2017), to name just a few examples. So if you don't want to miss out on almost 50 years of film and music history, you might have the unique opportunity to see the five exceptional artists in one place on August 30 and 31!

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 Spencer Marcus 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!

2019-08-02 - 9:08 am - Terence Hill makes a guest appearance in a music video

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!

2019-04-28 - 12:59 pm - Happy Birthday Riccardo Pizzuti!
Today Riccardo Pizzuti, probably the most popular bad guy in the Spencer/Hill universe, celebrates his 85th birthday. Between 1968 and 1990 Pizzuti played in a total of 20 films with Bud Spencer and Terence Hill and managed to play himself into the hearts of Spencer/Hill fans as a villain. We ourselves have personally experienced Pizzuti on several occasions in recent years and have been impressed by his warmth, humor, everlasting good mood and enormous fitness even in old age. We are looking forward to seeing him again in Lommatzsch at the end of August and wish him all the best for his birthday and many more beautiful years!

2018-05-04 - 11:24 am - Stuntman Marcello Verziera deceased
As became known from the Pedersoli family, stuntman Marcello Verziera died yesterday in Rome. Verziera was a boxer before he started his career. He made his first appearance in the Spencer/Hill universe in 1970 in They call me Trinity, where he played one of the three bandits Bud shot in a duel during his first appearance in the film. Verziera's roles at Bud and Terence's side have always been rather small, but very numerous. He has taken slaps from Bud and Terence in a total of 20 films, the last time in 1988 in the series Big Man. Rest in peace, Marcello!

2018-05-03 - 10:28 am - My name is Thomas: Theme song released
Last Monday the title song of My name is Thomas was released digitally. The song was written by Franco Micalizzi, who also composed the music for They call me Trinity, Go for it and Double Trouble. The title of the play is The World under my shoes. It was released in both an instrumental and a sung version. The song is sung by Albert Douglas Meakin, who has already interpreted the songs Mr. Nothinggoesright, In the middle of all that trouble again and What's goin' on (in Brazil). The distinctive whistling in the song comes from Alessandro Alessandroni, who has already been heard as a whistler in the Trinity title song and in various melodies by Ennio Morricone. For Alessandroni it was his last job at the age of 91. The song is now available on all music portals.

2016-04-13 - 3:03 pm - Terence Hill talks about the future
In the latest issue of the Italian magazine Sorrisi e canzoni TV there is an interview with Terence Hill. The journalist Tiziana Lupi has called Terence Hill in Los Angeles, where Terence is visiting his son Jess. Terence talks about of his family vacation in Hawaii, before he explains his exit from the series Un passo dal cielo. The reason therefore is that he cannot play two main roles in big series any longer. So he had to leave one of the series. He chose "Un passo dal cielo", because in his opinion the story of the ranger Pietro is told to the end. He is convinced that his successor in the series will be very good and that the series will continue to have success. The exit from one series also means that he will continue with the other series. And so Terence confirms an upcoming eleventh season of Don Matteo. The shooting will start next year. Until then Terence intends to devote himself to things that are lying left in the past years. He does not exclude a short television project in the meantime, but he highlighted the word short. We are excited and will keep you up to date.
