The Many Faces of Klaus Kinski

I got my hands on the May 1980 issue of American Film magazine a couple months ago. It features 'The Many Faces of Klaus Kinski,' a six page cover feature on Kinski by David Thomson in which the author wonders, "Can a small, middle-aged foreign actor with an alarming face be a star in America?"

The article is interesting, though it seems to dismiss a large portion of Kinski's work as not being "worthwhile" while spotlighting DOCTOR ZHIVAGO, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE and ZOO ZERO as those that are.

Most intriguing is the last paragraph in which there's talk of Klaus in a large supporting role in one the era's most spectacular action fantasy films.
