Born: 19 July 1929, Grosseto, Italy.
Another great 'face' of the Spaghetti Westerns, Luigi Pistilli usually had a secondary role to the lead characters, but appeared in some of the best films of the genre.
From Groggy, a member of Indio's gang in 'For a Few Dollars More', to Padre Ramirez, Tuco's reverend brother in 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and not forgetting the corrupt banker Pollicut in Corbucci's masterwork 'Il Grande Silenzio', an appearance from Pistilli is always welcome.
He also appeared in Mario Bava's influencial 'Bay of Blood'.
He committed suicide in 1996.Spaghetti credentials:
