Personal Quote:

[on how he would play a character] I just believed it.


After the tremendous success of Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars (1964) starring Clint Eastwood, Milian grubbed up his own image and propelled himself to stardom in like fashion in such classic "spaghetti westerns" as The Ugly Ones (1967), The Big Gundown (1966) with Lee Van Cleef, Face to Face (1967), Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot! (1967) and Run, Man, Run (1968). See more »
