Bud Spencer

The legendary Italian Western and Euro-cult comedy star Bud Spencer has passed away. Bud (AKA Carlo Pedersoli) is perhaps best known for the films that he made in partnership with Terence Hill (AKA Mario Girotti). The pair proved to be a box office hit in a trio of Westerns directed by Giuseppe Colizzi during the late 1960s: God Forgives… I Don’t! (1967), Ace High (1968) and Boot Hill (1969). But it was Enzo Barboni’s They Call Me Trinity (1970) – and its sequel, Trinity is Still My Name (1971) – that transformed the pair into global megastars.
