Happy 85th Birthday Tulio Altamura
Character actor Tullio Altmura was born July 18, 1924 in Bologna, Italy. He appeared in over 50 films. He began his career on TV in the late 1950s. He would go on to appear in several sword and sandal and other action and adventure films sometimes using the pseudonym Tor Altmayer. Tullio appeared in 9 Spaghetti Westerns the most famous being 1967’s “Wanted” as Ellis with Giuliani Gemma. I’m sure I have read that Tullio has passed away but cannot find any corroboration so we will celebrate his 85th birthday.
