Happy 75th Birthday Ángel del Pozo

Ángel del Pozo was born on July 14, 1934 in Madrid, Spain. Attending college he combined his studies with amateur stage performances until he decided to pursue an acting career on a fulltime basis. His debut in films came in 1960 and he would become a regular in Spaghetti Westerns during the 1960s and 1970s with over 30 appearances. He moved on to the role of director in the 1970s with four films. Afterwards he decided to retire from the industry. From the 1990s until the present he has continued in production work and public relations for Gestavision and as the manager of the TV station Telecinco. His most remembered role was probably as She(m)p Miller in 1967’s “The Big Gundown” where he ended up with the knife of Cuchillo buried in his forehead. Today we celebrate his 75th birthday.
