Happy 75th Birthday Tony Anthony



Tony Anthony was born Roger Pettito on October 16, 1937. He is an American actor, producer, director, and screenwriter. Anthony worked for many years in Spaghetti Westerns (some with co-production company Lupo-Anthony-Quintano Productions) appearing in 6 Euro-westerns. He produced and starred in two 3-Dimensional movies, both of which enjoyed a modest theatrical release. After making these two films, Anthony effectively retired from the movie industries (except for the occasional production work with friend Gene Quintano or Mark Damon). In late August 2009, Anthony announced he had taken the "over and under 3-D" format of "Comin' At Ya!" and converted it to "digital 3-D" as a part of the film's reissue. Following an exhibition at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas on September 25, 2011, the film was restored and digitalized for a 30th anniversary theatrical re-release and played in theaters throughout Texas starting on February 24, 2012. Today we celebrate Tony Anthony’s 75th birthday.

  1. Biltmore: One of my favorite spaghetti actors. I wish he would have put in an appearence in either of the two Gene Quintano westerns of the late 90's.

  2. He co-produced "Dollar for the Dead" but it would have been fun to have seen him in a cameo appearance.
