This side may be not too interesting for our English speaking visitors, but in Germany it's not easy to hear Lex' own voice because his movies are all dubbed. So the sound files on this site are one of the very rare possibilities to hear it!
Lex Barker made one record in 1965. These pictures are taken during rehearsals for this record:
