Redhaired Western Croupier.jpg

This red-haired guy often plays croupiers (particularly in westerns), but he also pops up in various other films from the 1960s and 70s.

The biggest role I've found for this generico is in the western Sono Sartana il vostro becchino (1969) as a croupier who manipulates the roulette wheel by pushing a secret button with his foot

But Sartana discovers what he's up to and throws a knife into his foot to stop him from pulling off this trick again :D

He also re-appears later in the film, getting seriously roughed up by Frank Wolff, who forces him to give out information

Apparently, our man didn't learn anything from his painful experiences in Sono Sartana il vostro becchino because he's up to his old tricks again in the next Sartana film: Buon funerale amigos... paga Sartana (1970) as a croupier operating with rigged dice

But he's found out and gets punched in the face by Fortunato Arena

I'm certain he plays a croupier in some other westerns too, but I can't remember which ones...

Quite a nice bad guy role for our man in the fotoromanzo Lord X N. 2: "Un peu gonflée, la fille!" (published in 1968 but the month isn't specified)

It's a French production made exclusively for the French market and never published in Italy, even though it has an all-Italian cast and was presumably made in Italy too. Sadly, the entire cast is uncredited...
