Director
Fernando Di Leo

Storyline
Professional hitmen Dave Catania and Frank Webster are dispatched from New York to Milan to find and kill Luca Canali, a small-time pimp accused of stealing a mob heroin shipment. Local mafia boss Don Vito Tressoldi is nervous about the Americans' intrusion into his territory, but he is obliged to cooperate with them in searching him. In truth, it is Don Vito who actually stole the drug shipment, blaming Luca Canali. Don Vito will not hesitate to kill Canali's wife and daughter to find him. Canali's revenge will not be long in coming: proving to be much more dangerous than it seemed, he will manage to kill all the members of the gang, up to being able to eliminate Don Vito himself in his office. At the end he will meet in Catania and Webster at a junkyard where the final battle will take place.

I have always thought that the man looking for prostitutes in the last photo could be Fernando Di Leo but I have never had the opportunity to compare myself with other opinions.

Not at all, Di Leo was completely different.

Sincerely I have some doubts on Ulli Lommel's identification. I don't know if he's that of the snapshot (the hippie), although I must say that there is a strong similarity with him. This actor, who also appears as a Doctor in La bestia uccide... and apparently did only these two movies. Not knowing the figure of Lommel well, I cannot say precisely whether it is him or not, I should see some films where he appears.

Absolutely not, Di Leo is only the one identified above.
