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 came very late in movies in Italy when he was around 42 years old and was seen in more than 40 movies and TV productions
in all sort of genres but 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?

He made movies under these pseudonyms also: Willliam Vanders, Bill Wanders 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.

Assassination (1967), credited, as Thomas

Crime action movie with tough Henry Silva in the title role as a man sentenced to death, but who is re-emerged from the C.I.A.
to function for them as a double agent.
There was location shooting in Rome and New York.

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 and this looks al rather unbelievable, but true.
This movie was entirely shot in New York with totally unknown actors in the cast.
