Happy 70th Birthday Fabrizio DeAngelis

Fabrizio De Angelis was born on November 15, 1940 in Rome, Italy. Before entering the film industry he was employed as a mailman. Known to most of us by his pseudonym of Larry Ludman he’s been active in the Italian film industry since the early ‘70s, mostly in the acrea of action, adventure films. He’s worked with such directors as Lucio Fulci, Enzo Girolami and Umberto Lenzi. He was a production manager on the George Hilton western “A Fistful of Lead”. He started producing and directing his own films in 1983 in whatever genre was popular at the time. He produced, directed and wrote the Thunder Warrior series of westerns starring Mark Gregory ( based on the modern day adventures of a Native American rebel who stands up against the violence and stealing of Indian lands by corrupt white industrialist and law enforcement officials. These films were also environmental statements against the destruction of Mother Earth. Fabrizio’s films are filled with action and special effects and plenty of gun and fist fights. He quit directing in the late ‘90s and turned his attention to acting so far in the 21st century. Today we celebrate Fabrizio De Angelis’ 70th birthday.
