Some notes from his IMDb page tell us he was 1.8m (5' 11") tall and that he appeared in many fotoromanzi, notably as a gangster in the Killing series. From his profile in the Killing fotoromanzi we are told that he was aged 49 in 1967, so he was presumably born around 1918.
He was yet another actor whose name fell victim to those credit writers who couldn't distinguish between the letters "I" and "J", with the spellings of his surname being split about 50/50.
I have found a few undocumented roles for Franco, so I'm sure there must be more to be found, particularly as there are some large gaps in his filmography. It could also be possible there are some early roles to be found.
