Bill Vanders in Una sull'altra (1969)
vlcsnap-2021-09-10-01h23m54s845.png

Bill Vanders was born as Wilhelm Vanders in Hamburg, Germany on november 7th, 1925[1].

He started out in Italian movies when he was around 41 years old and was seen in more than 40 movies and TV productions in all sort of genres. What puzzles me is that he played frequently an American so it could be that one of his parents was of American descend, who knows?

His name was sometimes also spelled as: Willliam Vanders, Bill Wanders, Bill Wander and Bill Wandes.

Omicidio per appuntamento (1967), credited, as Tennyson

Unusual crime action movie with John Garko in the title role.
Interesting detail, like fellow actor John Felleghy, he liked to smoke the pipe.

Acid - Delirio dei sensi (1968) as Doctor

Fugitive appearance in this strange and unusual movie about youngsters in New York who are taken LSD drugs and are entangled with a gang of mobsters
This movie was entirely shot in New York with totally unknown actors in the cast
