My friend author, producer, director Mike Malloy of “Euro Crime” fame recently put together a short documentary on European film actor Marc Mazza called “Who Was 'the Rider on the Rain?': A Bit Player in Bond and Beyond”. Mazza was born Marco Mazzacuarti in Paris, France on April 18, 1938. Never reaching stardom he became instead a cult favorite. With his unforgettable looks, bald head and piercing eyes, he was easily recognizable and very memorable in his 20+ film appearances. He’s best remembered by Euro-western fans for playing Don John who Terence Hill slaps around in “My Name is Nobody” and as Marshal Eli Saxon in “The Grand Duel” both in 1972. Thanks again to Mike for allowing us to post his short film and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Hopefully he’ll put some more together on these often over looked actors.
