    The main issue with his caracters is the dubbing.Especially in House By The Cemetery.However I think he's a great actor for his age.How old was he when he played those roles?
    There are a lot of kids in those Italian films.Where did they get them from?In several films these kids even get killed (Duckling,Who saw her die,My Dear Killer,Beyond)

    Yeah, it's the dubbing that makes him annoying. Anyone able to comment on the italian version of the soundtrack. Bob is bad but I think "John-John" from City of the living Dead is worse. "NO!!! GO AWAY!! NO! GO AWAY!!!!"... It's really abrasive sounding.

    Well put, Tawny. My thoughts exactly.

    His dubbing to me is part of his charm, I suppose. I never really find any of them annoying, infact most of the kids in these movies are a riot to me.

    Obviously, Giovanni Frezza is king of them all.
     
  6. and i love that kid francucio in violent naples or whatever it is called in the us. (aka death dealers aka violent protection)
    at the beginnen he pretents to be cripple when he crosses the street and at the and he is a cripple....

  8. I like Bob , though the dubbing in " House by the Cemetery " i have to agree was just plain awful . I read a few years ago that he is now a Doctor or a Lawyer in Italy .

    the dubbing for bob in house by the cemetary is the only reason i sit through that movie. every time bob talks, i laugh. if bob's voice was normal then he would be nothing too special at all. but bob is great.

    Bob's a dink.
     
  11. I love Bob, bad dub and all. For me, he's definitely a part of the Fulci experience.

    Does anyone know what Bob's up to these days? I'd love to see a picture of him now.
     
  12. you should check out the new barbarians aka warriors of the wasteland. in that movie mr. frezza plays an adult mechanic who stopped growing after the nuclear holocaust. he is really very good in that movie.

    and i must say that never had any problems with his dubbed voice in "outhouse by the cemetery". i only became really aware of it after several remarks on the internet and in stephen thrower's beyond terror

    His dubbed voice is annoying but it's part of who Bob is... we all love Bob.

    Bob rules.
    Anyone who disagrees is a "female"

    Bob and his dubbing rocks.
    That evil little girl in MACABRE also had quite a dubbing. Cracked me up :D

    "You're a female. You're a female." You had to feel sorry for Bob in A Blade in the Dark. Not only does he get tormented for not going down the stairs he also has to.......

    Spoilers Ahead*************************


    wear a wig at the end. Bob would be a very convincing cross dresser though. Wonder what he looks like today.

    Bob was the greatest child actor ever! Much better than those stupid kiddy actors these days like that snotty little Sixth Sense brat and that precocious little Cat In The Hat chick!

    It's a shame he didn't do more movies : Bob could have been the Italian Mickey Rooney!!
