Stelvio Rosi was born on August 1, 1938 in Rome, Italy. He became one of the most prominent young actors of the 1960s for his prowess and good looks. He was used almost exclusively as an interpreter of youth comedies and musical-comedy flicks. He also appeared in some more complex dramas such as in the film “La voglia matta” (1962) by Luciano Salce and with in “The Leopard” (1963). Rosi then became Stan Cooper in five Euro-westerns from “Franco & Cicci’s on the Warpath” (1969) to “Stay Away from Trinity... When He Comes to Eldorado”. At the same time he appeared in crime and war films. In 1973 he retired from films and is now living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and is a video producer.Today we celebrate Stan Cooper’s 75th birthday.
