Often credited with co-director status on Monte Hellman’s 1978 “China 9, Liberty 37” this was only done for co-production reasons and his name was listed for tax purposes only and was never involved as director. Mr. Brandt did appear as an actor and assistant director on several other European westerns as listed below.
