Marc Mazzacurati was born in Paris, France on April 18, 1938. As Marc/Mark Mazza he began his film career with an appearance in “OSS 117 se déchaîne” in 1963”. He appeared in over 20 films and TV appearances until 1991. Among his films were two Euro-westerns: “The Grand Duel” (1972) and “My Name is Nobody” (1973). His distinctive bald head and intense acting style made him easy to spot in his many action films. In 1974 he founded a cosmetics company called Hei Poa which specializes in Tahitian monoi, which is made from gardenias as a skin and hair softener. He remained the CEO of the company until 2003. Today we celebrate Marc Mazza’s 75th birthday.
