Pino Mattei in I fantastici 3 Supermen (1967)

Giuseppe "Pino" Mattei was a stuntman and actor who worked steadily, but not prolifically, in Italian films from the late '50's until the early '80's. He was also often credited as a Master of Arms. No biographical details are currently known.

Clearing up something that has caused some confusion and many mis-credits on various websites, he did use the pseudonym "Joseph Mathews" in a number of westerns, but he almost certainly does NOT appear in any films credited as "John Mathews", "John Mathios", "John Matheus" or "James Harris".

Anno 79 - La distruzione di Ercolano (1962) credited as actor and as Master of Arms, as Draco.

Pino must have caught the eye of either director Gianfranco Parolini or star Brad Harris in the previous year's Golia contro i giganti, since they took him with them to Yugoslavia and gave him his first substantial roles in 3 productions they shot there and a Master of Arms credit in 4.
