Trivia (2)

Father of Claudio Amendola.
Unanimously considered the most talented Italian dubber in the 70s, 80s and 90s, he gave his voice (and surely also part of their fortune in Italy), to names such as Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Sylvester Stallone, Dustin Hoffman, and a number of others. To the Italian audience his voice was so unmistakable that, when two or more of those actors worked together, he had to face the very serious problem of which one to pick for dubbing. For example: De Niro and Pacino acted together in "Godfather 2" (where he picked Pacino) and "Heat" (where he picked De Niro).
