Happy 90th Birthday Paul Muller

Paul Konrad Muller was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland on March 11, 1923. He moved to France where he debuted as a stage actor in Paris during the German occupation. After graduating from the Conservatoire National Supérieur d'art Dramatique he began his career as a film actor in Italy, making his debut in “Fabiola” (1949) directed by Alessandro Blasetti. Since the 1950s, he became a specialist in roles as a gangster or sadistic maniac in which his naturally sculpted facial features and distant looking eyes were highlighted.

Muller has worked extensively in Italy, directed by among others, Mario Monicelli, Riccardo Freda, Mario Camerini. Between 1968 and 1976 he appeared in over 15 films directed by Jesús Franco, and appeared as Albert Radeck in “Eugénie” (aka “De Sade 2000”) (1970) in the role of the male protagonist. Paul appeared in five Euro-westerns from “The Last of the Mohicans” (1965) to “Convoy of Women” (1974).

Today we celebrate Paul Muller’s 90th birthday.
