Little Known Spaghetti Western Actors ~ Ugo Ballester

 [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.]

Ugo Ballester was an Italian actor, nationality unknown, possibly Yugoslavian. He was active as an actor in both fotoromanzi magazines and films. He appeared in over 35 films from “Giulio Cesare, il conquistatore delle Gallie” (Caesar the Conqueror) starring Cameron Mitchell in 1962 to “Quelli della calibro 38” (Colt .38 Special Squad) starring Marcel Bozzuffi in 1976. Among those films were 17 Spaghetti westerns. He seldom had anything more than appearing as a townsman, courtroom observer or saloon patrons. I can find no biographical information on him. From his looks he was born around 1915-1920 and most likely passed away sometime in the 1970s.
