"40th anniversary of Lex Barker's death"

On the eleventh of May, 2013, forty years have passed since Lex Barker's death. The years have not diminished his popularity among the audience. On the contrary he remains in the hearts of his fans and is now being adored by 'up-and-coming' generations in his famous roles of Tarzan and Old Shatterhand.

The screening of his movies on television, as well as new, 'remastered' editions on DVD and Blu-ray are evidence of it. Special commemorative contributions on Lex Barker during the month of May include an article by the men's magazine GQ, among others. A new nomination for Barker's inclusion on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood is also under preparation. In addition, an English language edition of the Lex Barker biography is being created, as well as a new book about the German Westerns (in which film people around the world will speak about Old Shatterhand Lex Barker).

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Lex Barker's death, ARD-Magazine Brisant broadcasted as part of its program on the 10th May, 2013, a tribute in honour of the unforgettable actor. For that purpose, exclusive interviews have been recorded with Lex Barker's son, Christopher (in Switzerland), and Winnetou Pierre Brice (in Paris) at the beginning of the week. An hommage of a special kind!
