Lee Van Cleef – Cowboy Hall of Fame

29 Sep

Trivia: Internet Movie Database IMDB  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001812/bio

- Van Cleef  had almost given up on his acting career in the mid-’60s and turned to painting when he was cast by Sergio Leone in For a Few Dollars More (1965). It made him a superstar in Europe and restarted his career in the US, making him again a recognizable and bankable name.

- Lee had one green eye and one blue eye. This was corrected in the movies with colored contact lenses.

- He was involved in a car accident in 1959 in which he lost his left kneecap. Doctors told him he would never be able to ride a horse again because of the injury. Within six months he was back in the saddle. But the injury plagued him for the rest of his life.

Lee had a smile …

Ride on Lee.
