Pierre Brice (Winnetou) is dead von Truus, Bob & Jan too! Über Flickr: German postcard, no. 3. Photo: Rialto / Constantin. Publicity still for Winnetou III. Teil/Winnetou: The Last Shot (Harald Reinl, 1963). with Pierre Brice and Lex Barker. Caption: “Während Winnetou und Old Shatterhand zurückreiten, berichtet der Sekretär des Gouverneurs - der dem Letter des Desperados als Spitzel dient - von der Unterredung. Man beschliesst den Tod Winnetous und Old Shatterhands, der als Unfall hergestellt werden soll, und zwar durch vorzeitige Sprengung des Steinbruchs.” (While Winnetou and Old Shatterhand ride back, the secretary of the governor reports about the conversation - which letter serves the spying Desperados. They decide to kill Winnetou and Old Shatterhand, produced as an accident, by premature detonation of the quarry.)
Pierre Brice, the French actor who fascinated millions of European film fans in his role as Apache chief Winnetou has died. The handsome Brice (1929-2015) was the hero of 11 films based on German author Karl May’s tales of America’s colonization. During the 1960s, Winnetou - a long-haired saint with a gun - was a superstar among European kids. Brice died in a clinic near Paris. He was 86.
After a Hollywood career as Tarzan and as Mr. Lana Turner, Lex Barker (1919-1973) moved to Europe. Here he worked with Federico Fellini and later became Old Shatterhand in the popular Karl May film series.

Grace Jones by Truus, Bob & Jan too! Via Flickr: British postcard by Heroes, London, no. PC 544.
Grace Jones (1948) is a Jamaican singer, supermodel, and actress. Classic is her album Nightclubbing (1981) and unforgettable are her hits La Vie en Rose, Pull Up to the Bumper and I’ve Seen That Face Before. She was also memorable as a James Bond villain in A View to a Kill (1985). But foremost, the unusual, androgynous, bold, dark-skinned artist was a style icon for the late 1970s and early 1980s.
