Shock Xpress - Franco Nero (pt. 1)

The second Shock Xpress book contains a short interview with legendary Italian actor Franco Nero by Edwin Pouncey, who is also known as Savage Pencil. One day I'll post a tribute to Edwin Pouncey on this blog, like the one I wrote about Stefan Jaworzyn. Pouncey's done his bit for Black Metal and other varieties of Noise.

This is the first episode of a short series of posts featuring trailers to some of the films Pouncey discussed with Nero. In this episode, all films are from 1966 - a peak year for Italian exploitation.

Django (Sergio Corbucci, 1966)

Tempo Di Massacro (Lucio Fulci, 1966)

Texas, Addio
(Ferdinando Baldi, 1966)

Franco Nero is rule. Texas Addio is full of fantastic anachronisms, the most powerful of which is Nero's hair itself. When he takes off his hat, a rift is made in the continuum.
