Though he was born in Madrid, Spain, on February 23, 1931, Aldo Sambrell is best known for his appearances in the "spaghetti westerns" of Italian director Sergio Leone. Sambrell, who has been credited under a slew of different permutations of his name, appeared in several Westerns in the early 1960s including "Gunfight at High Noon", "Implacable Three", and "Cavalry Charge". He began work on Leone's "A Fistful of Dollars" in 1964 and went on to star in the rest of the "Man With No Name" trilogy, including "For a Few Dollars More" and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", as well as the director's "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "Duck, You Sucker!", also known as "A Fistful of Dynamite". Between 1961 and 1996 Sambrell appeared in over 150 films, many of them Westerns, where he was often cast as a violent gang member. He also had parts in other films, however, including "Doctor Zhivago" and "The Wind and the Lion". Sambrell began directing films in 1974 with "Bloody Sun" and continued to become involved behind the camera, eventually writing and producing "Steam: The Turkish Bath" in 1997.
