5 Terence Hill And Bud Spencer Movies You Must See

Hill and Spencer Movies


Italian actors Terence Hill and Bud Spencer were an odd combination yet, they clicked and made over 20 films, many of which were big hits.

Hill was the smart, slick, wisecracking half, and quick on the draw. Spencer on the other hand, was a well-built character who spoke little but let his hands do the talking.

Spencer was also a professional swimmer who represented Italy in the Olympics, a water polo player and studied law. He also started many charities.

Here are five films from the terrific duo:
