Franco Ukmar in Ehi amico... c'è Sabata, hai chiuso! (1969)
vlcsnap-2020-02-16-11h19m50s576.jpg

Franco Ukmar was one of six brothers, with Bruno, Clemente, Giancarlo, Giovanni and Sergio. They all worked for italian cinema as stuntmen, bodydoubles and stunt coordinators.

Franco Ukmar was born on March 29th 1936 in Roma, and he passed away on August 10th, 2016 (dates confirmed by Franco's daughter, Daniela). He was the third eldest of the brothers after Bruno and Sergio.

As you know he did at least two hundred movies, maybe more.

Gli invincibili tre (1964) as Guard. He appears in several scenes wearing different costumes (I need to get images of the others), but it's difficult to be certain if these are intended to be extensions of the same character or not.
