Description
Klaus Kinski (born Klaus Günter Karl Nakszynski 18 October 1926 – 23 November 1991) was a German actor. He appeared in more than 130 films, and was a leading role actor in the films of Werner Herzog, including Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972), Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), Woyzeck (1979), Fitzcarraldo (1982), and Cobra Verde (1987). He also appeared in many Spaghetti Westerns, such as For a Few Dollars More (1965), A Bullet for the General (1966), The Great Silence (1968), And God Said to Cain (1970), Shoot the Living and Pray for the Dead (1971) and A Genius, Two Partners and a Dupe (1975). A controversial figure in Germany, some of Kinski's violent outbursts on set were filmed in Herzog's documentary My Best Fiend



Klaus Kinski died on 23 November 1991, of a sudden heart attack at his home in Lagunitas, California, at the age of 65.[23] His body was cremated and his ashes were scattered into the Pacific Ocean. He was survived by his daughters, Pola and Nastassja, and his son, Nikolai. Only Nikolai attended his father's funeral.
