Horst Frank retrospective

Although never a major player in Euro-cult cinema, Horst Frank is one the better known character actors from the period. German by birth, he got his first start in the late 1950s, and quickly moved across Europe starring in a variety of films from Spaghetti Westerns to Gialli through the 1960s and into the early 1970s when he returned to Germany, working extensively in television and radio there.

I have just posted a brand new review of one of his few starring roles, as an insane scientist in the German sci-fi film The Head (1959) and you can also find out a lot more about the background of this actor in the all new Mondo Esoterica Guide to Horst Frank.

  1. Ich liebe Horst Frank! One of my favorite of his roles is as the dandy Dr. Braun in Dario Argento’s CAT O’NINE TAILS. He’s got such a great sense of menace without really being threatening. My eyes always brighten whenever Horst turns up in something.
