Farewell Ray Lovelock, a hero of the cops of fiction;
She dies at 67, with 'Cassandra Crossing' internationally renowned. ...

ANSA Cultura
November 10, 2017

In the same year of his friend and associate Tomas Milian, he goes to Ray Lovelock, the "American" who disappeared in Trevi at the age of 67, who was taken away from a tumor fought courageously until the last days. Leave his wife Joy, her daughter Francesca Romana, grandchild Thomas, her brothers Michael and Andrea. The funerals will be held tomorrow at 14.30 at the Trevi Duomo.

Despite having been wearing the "American" label for the hard part and policeman on both sides of the ocean, Raymond Lovelock was born in Rome on June 19, 1950, by his father, English and Italian mother. And his artistic career, behind an uncharted appearance in "Darling" by John Schlesinger in 1965, has always been in the shadow of the recent "Hollywood on the Tiber" and then of the genre of Italian cinema.

In fact, he was unkempt like him, Giulio Questi, to find out in the casting of his most bloody and personal western, "If you're alive, shoot" (1967) and was Carlo Lizzani to sew him on 1968 for "Banditi in Milan" Tornado (the young man of the band Cavallero) with so many talents like Gian Maria Volonté, Tomas Milian, singer Don Backy lending to the big screen.

Hippie's Long Hair, a good boy in Swinging London, the young Lovelock quickly scales the popularity steps, both as a singer and a band from his friend Milian. But cinema is his great passion, and here is a niche of cult as an iron detector, able to use strong manners but also to reason and discover the guilty in the golden season of the Italian politician.

They are the 70s and the greatest successes of Stelvio Massi (1974) at "Milan hates: the police can not shoot" Umberto Lenzi (same year), from "violent Roma" (Marino Girolami, 1975) ) to "Men are born, cops die" (Ruggero Deodato, 1976). Just Umberto Lenzi entrusts him with the most diverse roles (they will make five films), but Lovelock also appears in films made by "excellent" authors by Mario Monicelli at Norman Jewison, Alberto Lattuada and George Pan Cosmatos who, with "Cassandra Crossing" of 1976, offers him international fame alongside Richard Harris and Sophia Loren.

...In the 1980s, he directed his appearances to the cinema as he found in the TV series a second artistic life starting from "A face coperto" and the vigorous role that Luigi Perelli entrusts to "La Piovra 5" (1990) small screen with "The Red House" of 1981. On TV will find a popularity always sought: perhaps in partnership with Terence Hill for "Don Matteo", or in a long series of "Commesse" and "Spell".

The movie is less and less visible to the movies, but a small cult film like "Murderock" by Lucio Fulci (1984) and his latest "My Father Jack" by Tonino Zangardi (2016), the same year as the last television appearance in "The student" with Alessandra Mastronardi. Ray Lovelock, however, remains the other face of Tomas Milian in a season of Italian cinema that loves the oriundi and with them he is a man of ironic and positive football, a proud football fan (lazy faith proudly displayed in TV talk shows) knew how to win abroad as well as more than football pitches.
