Although he was heavyset, Bud Spencer proved a heavy hitting protagonist in a slew of western comedies throughout the 70's and 80's. Today he's considered a veritable icon of European pop culture. His recently published auto-biography quickly claimed the top position of Spiegel's best-seller list. The over 80 year old Spencer reminisces about his multifararious life, yet his versatile and productive nature keeps him from even contemplating retirement.
