Description
Pierre Brice, actually Pierre Louis Baron Le Bris (born February 6, 1929 in Brest, France, June 6, 2015, Paris) was a French actor, mainly by the portrayal of the Winnetou in the Karl May films of the 1960s got known

From 1962 to 1968, Brice played the role of Winnetou in a total of eleven Karl May films, seven of which were alongside the American Lex Barker, three with Stewart Granger and one with Rod Cameron. This made him a star in Germany. The youth magazine Bravo, whose reporting accompanies the filming of each film, contributed significantly to his cult status. Pierre Brice in the figure of the Winnetou was at that time the idol of a whole generation and got from the magazine twelve Otto. Since 1965 it has been designed in the form of a small Indian steamer, which should remind Winnetou. In addition, he was devoted to three star-cuts (1964, 1967 and 1977), which represented an uniqueness in the long-standing Bravo story.

On the evening of June 5, 2015, Pierre Brice was admitted to a hospital near Paris with a high fever. He died on the morning of June 6, 2015, at the age of 86 years, following the effects of pneumonia. After a funeral on 18 June 2015 in the Michaelskirche in Munich, he was buried the following day at the municipal cemetery of Gräfelfing, district of Munich.
