On May 8th 1919 Lex Barker was born in Rye, New York. On the official Barker-site you can find an obit which I can fully share, so I won't write too much myself. But I want to point to the wonderful poem I think about these days quite often...
Martin Böttcher, world famous composer of the Karl-May film music, passed away on April 19th aged 91 years.
His wonderful music added much to the success of the Karl-May movies. He composed the soundtrack to 10 films, among them the famous "Old Shatterhand melody". Additionally he composed the music to a lot of famous movies and series. He was a gentleman and a very nice, modest man.
He will greatly be missed by all Karl-May movie fans.
