Spartaco Conversi

The Internet Movie Database ( does not give any details on nationality, but do I detect just a little Italian heritage in that name?

And Spartaco Conversi must win the award for the best actor name in Spaghetti Westerns. (Fortunato Arena comes a close second, with Annabella Incontrera stealing the best actress name.) He has even used the pseudonym Sean Convery.

His roles have included the outlaw leader in Corbucci's 'Il Grande Silenzio' and the member of Frank's gang in 'Once Upon a Time in the West' that is shot by Cheyenne through his boot.
