Mimmo Palmara

  1. Gian Maria Volonte, Per un pugno di dollari/For A Fistful of Dollars,  Italy-Spain-Germany, 1964.   The still unknown director Sergio Leone wanted his impassive pal Mimmo (aka Dick Palmer) to be the Rojos’ leader, Ramon. Too late. He was booked for Santero in Le pistole non discutono( US: Bullets Don’t Argue),Bullets Don’t Argue allowing the stage and TV actor, Volonte, to be billed as Johnny Wells, gobble the scenery and yet, according to UK director Alex Cox, steal Dollars from Clint Eastwood. Oh really. Leone used the Italian ham in the sequel but, pointedly, never again.
