A longtime fixture of German films, actor Joachim Fuchsberger has run the standard character-actor gamut from Class "A" historical productions to Grade "Z" horror films. Perhaps his best work was concentrated in the two-part epic of the 1960s, Wenn Ich Einmal Der Herrgott War: 08/15. From time to time, Fuchsberger has appeared in international productions which gained distribution beyond Germany, notably the 1968 German/Italian production Commandos, starring American leading man Lee Van Cleef. And, as mentioned, there were many horror pictures, with Fuchsberger fighting silly scripting and wading through oceans of "stage blood" in pictures like Dead Eyes of London (1962) and The Unnatural (1965). In this vein, Joachim Fuchsberger played in The Mysterious Magician (1965), one of several Alfred Vohrer-directed German adaptations of Edgar Wallace mysteries.
