Franco Pasquetto in È tornato Sabata... hai chiuso un'altra volta! (1971)
vlcsnap-2020-02-17-18h30m58s281.jpg

Franco Pasquetto was a stuntman, actor and, from the early 70's onwards, assistant director, active in Italian films from at least the start of the 60's until the late 80's. He appeared predominantly in the peplum and spaghetti western genres.

No biographical details are currently known about him. A number of his production credits list him as Gianfranco Pasquetto, so that may be his full name.

I have started his filmography only with roles found by myself, so there are plenty more to be added, particularly westerns and films from later in his career. It also looks like it is well worth searching for him in those films where he has director credits since he appears, missing from most websites, in the 4 I have seen so far.
