Klaus Kinski is one of the great faces of cinema: a controversial, always-interesting screen actor whose unique visage and unruly portrayals are still memorable to filmgoers worldwide. Howard Hughes charts for the first time Kinski's life and 130 film career - from international hits like Doctor Zhivago and For a Few Dollars More , to arthouse specials in Werner Herzog's Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo, as well as the best and worst of international B movies, such as The Million Eyes of Sumuru and Web of the Spider. Was Kinski a genius or an overrated fraud? Hughes reveals a mercurial actor, who could shift on and offscreen from tenderness and great, natural acting to ferocious rages and bad behaviour. Extensively illustrated, the stories of the films in all their aspects are as fascinating as is their central actor. Herzog may have said, 'Every grey hair on my head I call Kinski', but this book shows how, as Herzog also observed, 'Even in the bad films he's special'.
