The Secret Story behind Angel Eyes of Lee Van Cleef.
The mini real story of Lee Van Cleef. In 1965, Sergio Leone cast Van Cleef, whose career had yet to take off, as a main protagonist alongside Clint Eastwood in For a Few Dollars More. Leone then chose Van Cleef to appear again with Eastwood, this time as the primary antagonist, Angel Eyes, in the now seminal Western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). With his roles in Leone’s films, Van Cleef became a major star of Spaghetti Westerns, playing central, and often surprisingly heroic. Van Cleef later had a supporting role in John Carpenter’s cult film Escape from New York (1981). In all, Van Cleef is credited with 90 movie roles and 109 television appearances over a 38-year span. Van Cleef was married three times. His first marriage was to Patsy Ruth Kahle, in 1943. They had three children, Alan, Deborah and David, and divorced in 1958. His second marriage was to Joan Marjorie Drane, from 1960 to 1974. His final marriage was to Barbara Havelone in 1976, who survived him. He lost the last joint of the middle finger of his right hand while building a playhouse for his daughter.
