Little Known Spaghetti Western Actors ~ Carl Becker

[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.]

Carl Becker was a German silent film producer, director, writer and film actor who appeared in a number of German westerns as Texas Jack. The film series was based very loosely on the life of Jack Burwell "Texas Jack" Omohundro, a friend of Buffalo Bill and member of Buffalo Bill´s (William F. Cody) and Wild Bill´s (James B. Hickok) Wild West Circus.

I can find no biographical information on Becker.
