Jeff Cameron in Sette contro tutti (1965)

Jeff Cameron was born Giovanni Goffredo Scarciofolo on April 11th 1934 in Rome, Italy. He died in 1985, aged 51, exact date unknown. In a recent broadcast on his Once Upon A Time In Spaghetti Westerns podcast dedicated to Jeff, Tom Betts revealed these details as confirmed by Jeff's nephew, also informing us that Jeff had a wife, Anna Maria Collieri, and a son, Massimo. The podcast can be watched on You Tube here. Unfortunately there's no information known on why he retired or died so young.

Jeff worked steadily as a stuntman from 1962-1967, first in peplums then moving into eurospies and spaghetti westerns, with occasional credits. 1968 saw him rise rapidly through the western credit lists (with several under his real name) and in 1969 he became a fully fledged lead actor, scoring 10 lead or featured roles over the next 4 years. Then in 1973, just as his career could have taken off internationally, he mysteriously vanished from the screen.

I think Jeff's latter filmography must be pretty complete, but there is a possibility that there may be a few undocumented appearances in peplums or eurospies still to be uncovered.

I'm reasonably sure that he plays a pirate in Sansone contro il Corsaro Nero (1964), but with the available copies it's impossible to be certain or to get an image that isn't a blur.

Jeff actually gets killed 5 times in this film, so I guess he plays 5 different roles! Is this a record?
