Trivia (2)

Fair-haired Austrian leading man, who appeared in many spaghetti westerns between 1966 and 1987. He had a reputation for being a rebel and a vociferous anti-establishment figure. Berger's career was also at times interrupted by drug abuse. On August 4, 1970, he and his second wife, Carol Lobravico, were arrested by Neapolitan police on a charge of drug possession. It has been conjectured, that the 'half a gram of hashish' may have been planted in their villa in order to secure a conviction. Lobravico died in jail from acute peritonitis, which was largely attributed to negligence from the authorities and misdiagnosis by the consulting doctors who thought her condition as a minor ailment. Berger was not released from jail until March 1971.
