Who Are Those Guys? - Salvatore Baccaro

Salvatore Baccaro was born on May 6, 1944 in Italy. He was working as a florist near De Paolis Studios when his unusual features were noticed by a director and he was given a part in Damiano Damiani's “La moglie più bella” (“The Most Beautiful Wife”) in 1970. His appearance gave him the opportunity to appear in comedy and horror films as grotesque characters. Salvatore would appear in over 60 films under such aliases as Sal Boris, Boris Lugosi and Boris Ps. It was learned from his brother Armando in an espisode of the TV series Stracult that Baccaro's appearance was from acromegaly, a hormone condition that effects growth of the body tissues. Salvatore appeared in nine Euro-westerns and passed away in 1984 at the age of 40.
