Kinski Co-Star Pinkas Braun Dies

Just heard from Holger over at Hammer and Beyond that actor Pinkas Braun has died at the age of 85. Though Braun's name might not be instantly recognizable, fans of Eurotrash films (especially Edgar Wallace krimis) will recognize his face from such films as THE DOOR WITH SEVEN LOCKS, MARK OF THE TORTOISE and THE SECRET OF THE RED ORCHID, all of which also featured Kinski as well as Eurospy outings (NEW YORK CALLING SUPERDRAGON), spaghetti westerns (CLINT, THE NEVADA'S LONER) and the star-studded Sidney Sheldon adaptation BLOODLINE.
