Just found out my favourite Spaghetti Western actor has passed away. Milian was an immensely charismatic, idiosyncratic and mercurial performer, a magnetic presence on-screen. Always felt he never got the wider recognition his talent deserved.
I'd highly recommend the three Spaghetti Westerns he made with director Sergio Sollima - he's hilarious as lovable rogue Cuchillo in The Big Gundown and its sequel Run, Man, Run, and excellent in the more serious role of a bandit discovering his conscience in Face To Face. He's also great fun as a peasant-turned-revolutionary forced to team up with a Swedish gun-runner in Sergio Corbucci's Companeros.
