Robert Woods in GATLING GUN

The American actor Robert Woods appeared in six Jess Franco films, all made in 1973, including LA COMTESSE PERVERSE, AL OTRO LADO DEL ESPEJO [two of the director's best films of that era], the Sade adaptation PLAISIR A TROIS, the thriller THE EYES OF DR. ORLOFF and two Maciste films, YUKA and LES GLOUTONNES.

He also was a capable leading man in a number of Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s and 70s. One of those, GATLING GUN (1968), came out last year on DORADO DVD. It was one of 2009's most welcome and underappreciated DVD presentations of a good, if obscure, Eurogenre item.
