Amerigo Castrichella in E venne il tempo di uccidere (1968)
Castrighella_1968_EVenneIlTempoDiUccidere_MulliganHenchman.jpg

Castrichella jumped onto the screen in 1961 and left some 20 years later. Always bearded, always looking sinister, always ready to rumble in your neighborhood's Western saloon. Credited in just a handfull of films with his real (?) name (and if so, as "Castrichella", just once as "Castrighella"), he got meatier roles in cheap Westerns using a "Custer Gail" pseudonym. But other name were lurking round the credits: Gastry Gay, for example, and probably Amerigo Leoni once.

Apparently, nothing is known beyond the screen credits and appearances about his life and whereabouts.

L'uomo mascherato contro i pirati (1964), credited as Amerigo Leoni, as Pirate Guard

Yet his first appearance contains a suggestion: an otherwise unknown Amerigo Leoni is credited, but not our friend, whose part is big enough to be listed...
