Happy 80th Birthday Luigi Bazzoni
Aka Marc Meyer, Luigi Bazzoni was born on June 25, 1929 in Salsomaggiore, Parma, Italy and is the older brother of cinematographer Camillo Bazzoni born in 1934. He is a director and screenwriter of only a half-dozen film. Although he only has few films to his credit one of the most important is the classic “A Man, His Pride, a Vengenace” (1967) which although technically takes place in Europe has always been labeled as a Spaghetti Westerns. The other is the rarely seen “Brothers Blue” (1971) starring Jack Palance. Today we celebrat Luigi Bazzoni’s 80th birthday.
