This is the film that is considered Bud Spencer’s most personal piece

The 1984 movie No Two Without Four marked Bud Spencer and Terence Hill’s fifteenth collaboration. Since writers Marco Barboni and director Enzo Barboni collaborated on the movie, it can be said to be a true “family” endeavor. The narrative claims that Greg and Eliot accept a rather peculiar job. They must take over for a billionaire brother and sister from Rio who are facing increasing threats to their lives for one million dollars each.

Of course, the job seems easy, since Greg and Eliot are exact replicas of the brothers, but the problems start when they actually try to commit an assassination against them, and of course there is quite a bit of confusion when the elegant and somewhat squeamish millionaire brothers suddenly turn into two capable, hard-nosed couples.

No two without four is probably one of the most memorable parts of the Spencer-Hill films, not to mention that the plot of the film is more real than we might think. To this day, the montage technique with which they managed to double the couple on the cinema screen is impressively authentic, and although they used doubles in many scenes, perhaps even the most perceptive would not be able to tell when we are not seeing the real Bud Spencer and Terence Hill on the cinema screen.

In reality, the two actors actually received 1 million dollars each, just like the characters they portrayed in the film, and in reality, Bud Spencer could play the saxophone just as talented as Greg. However, the story does not end, because in one of the scenes of the film, when he says on one of the banana plantations that he had been to Brazil before, when he was looking for diamonds along the Rio Negro, well, in reality, Spencer actually worked in the country, namely at the Italian consulate.

The agency that approaches Greg and Eliot in the movie’s plot reveals that they are not the first people to be asked to fill in for others because the President of the United States of America is also a Hollywood actor. This was not too far off from reality, as US President Ronald Reagan actually began his career as a film actor in the 1940s.
