Little Known Spaghetti Western Actors ~ Dick Armstrong

 [These daily posts will cover little known actors or people that have appeared in more recent films and TV series. Various degrees of information that I was able to find will be given and anything that you can add would be appreciated.]

Richard ‘Dick’ Armstrong was an American character actor. Supposedly born in 1921 he appeared in a dozen or so films and television series between 1974 and 1988. Among thos films were two Euro-westerns: “Another Man, Another Chance” in1977 starring James Caan and Geneviève Bujold, as the wagon train preacher and as a bar patron in 1987’s “They Call Me Renegade” starring Terence Hill – 1987.

It's extremely difficult to find information on character actors with such common names.

  1. Which one is it, Tom? In the bio, you said Dick Armstrong was born in 1951 but then when you list the credits down below, it says he was born in 1921. Either one could be correct, but which one would YOU go with? As for me, I'd go with 1951 but you're free to choose whichever year you want. Cuz hey, we WOULD like to know, wouldn't we?

  2. He was born in 1921.

  3. My fault, Tom. I read that wrong. I thought the number was a 5 and not a 2.
