Klaus Kinski


There is more than one Klaus Kinski on last.fm: 1. Klaus Kinski (October 18, 1926–November 23, 1991) was a German actor of Polish descent, in the second half of the 20th century. He was notorious for his explosive temperament. After World War II, he began acting and changed his name to Klaus Kinski. He started on stage in Germany, became a legend as a monologist (presenting the prose and verse of William Shakespeare and Francois Villon, among others), and soon moved, pragmatically, to film, where the money was better.

There is more than one Klaus Kinski on last.fm: 1. Klaus Kinski (October 18, 1926–November 23, 1991) was a German actor of Polish descent, in the second half of the 20th century. He was notorious for his explosive temperament. After World War II, he began acting and changed his name to Klaus Kinski. He started on stage in Germany, became a legend as a monologist (presenting the prose and verse of William Shakespeare and Francois Villon, among others), and soon moved, pragmatically, to film, where the money was better. His international reputation is built on five collaborations with director Werner Herzog in the films Aguirre: The Wrath of God (1972), Woyzeck (based on the play by Georg Büchner) (1979), Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), Fitzcarraldo (1982), and finally Cobra Verde (1987).

With his fluency in English, his unique appearance, and his ability to project on-screen intensity, Kinski was always able to get roles, although the quality of the productions varied wildly, most of them considered "junk" (Schrott) by Kinski himself. When Steven Spielberg offered him the part of one of the German villains in Raiders of the Lost Ark, he turned it down, stating: "[...] as much as I'd like to do a movie with Spielberg, the script is as moronically shitty as so many other flicks of this ilk.", preferring a part in Venom (1982), reportedly because the money was better. taken from en.wikipedia.org - read more 2.
