Antonio Molino Rojo (1926-2011). A sad day for all European western fans, as word has come from actor Ricard Requant via Nzoog Wahrlfhehen that Spanish actor Antonio Molino Rojo passed away on November 3, 2011 in Barcelona, Spain. Born on September 14, 1926 in Venta de Baños, Palencia, Spain the great character actor was in dozens of films especially the Spaghetti western genre. He was one of the Baxter henchmen who shot at 'The Man with No Name's' mule in "Fistful of Dollars" (1964) and played the Captain of Betterville Prison in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (1966) who was dying of gangrene. He along with a number of other Spanish character's made up a stock company that was constantly seen in the Spaghetti westerns filmed in Spain. I will post more information if and when it becomes available.
