Spaghetti Collectables

Another scarce gum card issued in the Netherlands and distributed in Sweden and Finland in the 1960's by Maple Leaf showing a picture of Spaghetti Western star Mark Damon from “Johnny Oro” (aka Ringo and His Golden Pistol). Mark has a recent biography out called “From Cowboy to Monster to Mogul” by Linda Shreyer, published by AuthorHouse, May 2008. Great book if you are interested in his life as a film producer. Great disappointment if you want to find out any information on his Spaghetti Western films and career.


  1. That looks like Mark in JOHNNY ORO, aka RINGO AND HIS GOLDEN PISTOL to me.

  2. You are right, Bill! That is the film, indeed. I know a lot of folks don't like JOHNNY ORO..but, it is one I really enjoy, personally. Of course, it has Silvana Bacci in it so that automatically makes it one I can watch over and over! ha ha!

  3. Thanks for the correction. I've changed the post. Gracias amigos.
