Riccardo Pizzuti, the ultimate villain from the legendary Spencer/Hill movies, comes to CCON | COMIC CON GERMANY and brings the flair of these immortal screen classics to Stuttgart, which unite whole generations of fans.
The fan darling from the Italian region of Calabria, better known as “Silberlocke” (“The Silver Curl”), made 20 films with Bud Spencer – in Buddy haut den Lukas (Everything Happens to Me) not even as his opponent, but side by side with him in the fight against the aliens.
In addition to his countless appearances as an actor and stuntman, Pizzuti was also largely responsible for stunt coordination for the productions.
With his imposing 1.93 meters Riccardo Pizzuti even surpassed the actor Bud Spencer by a whole centimeter and was thus – at least in terms of body height – an equal opponent in countless film fights. Once the Italian film legend even knocked out two teeth for him, which could not detract from the friendship between the two men.
In the documentary film Sie nannten ihn Spencer (Germany, 2017) – a touching road movie – director Karl-Martin Pold and his protagonists set out in search of the man behind the cult figure who died in Rome in 2016. It goes without saying that Riccardo Pizzuti, who has been with us for many years, should not be missing.
