>dubbing, though?
        Absolutely.  His Italian was accentless and there's no way that he
could have reproduced that sound unless he were a native speaker.  Also, I
saw him in *Un Homme et une Femme* (in French) and his voice doesn't match.
  He appeared in a slew of Italian films early in his career.
        Always dubbed.

        No, he didn't.
