Jess Franco Quiz: Who is this actor?


Can you name this actor? He appears in numerous JF films from the 1970s and 1980s. A tougher question: Can you then name ALL the JF films in which he appears? The second question is kind of tricky.




He also has appeared in a great many Italian films of a certain genre from the 1960s onward. If you can name them all, you're good... real good.

That is the late, great Luis Barboo. I cannnot name all of the films he acted in for Jess Franco, but I can name three off the top of my head:

THE DEMONS, LA COMTESSE NOIRE, and THE EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN.

DADA for now....

You are correct, Mick. He appeared in those you mentioned and numerous others through the 80s, including JUEGO SUCIO EN CASABLANCA in 1984. Can anyone list all the others? The reason it's tricking is because he is listed as appearing in some in which I can't seem to find him. Same for some of his roles in 60s and 70s Spaghetti Westerns. Thanks, and looking forward to seeing more of your work. I'll be posting it soon.

My God this man has been in so many Franco flicks. I wouldn't even want to try and start naming them all. Yeesh!

He also popped up in Sergio Martino's CASE OF THE SCORPION'S TAIL alongside another Franco stalwart Janine Reynaud and LIGHT AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. And I do believe he has a brief appearance in Frank Perry's DOC (all '71)! Jeepers the boy did get around!

Yes, he's been in many Eurolensed westerns in minor roles. He has that look which fits horror and western villain roles especially.
