Happy 75th Birthday Camillo Bazzoni
Born Camillo Bazzoni on December 29, 1934 in Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy. He is the younger brother of director, screenwriter, Luigi Bazzzoni. Camillo became a director, screenwriter and cinematographer in the Italian film industry working on over 40 films. Most of his films were dramas and a few in the adventure genre. He was a cinematographer on “A Man, His Pride, a Vengeance” (1968), which is often mistaken for a Eurowestern while the action actually takes place in Spain. He directed “A Longe Ride from Hell” (1968) with Steve Reeves under the pseudonym Alex Burks. Camillo was active until 2000 when he retired. Today we celebrate Camillo Bazzoni's 75th birthday.
