Softcover. US, FAB Press, 1st, 2007, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: None, 127 pages. Clean, unmarked copy in excellent condition. Luciano Possi, Italian exploitation cinema's tough-guy -- and one of the most identifiable yet little-known faces -- exposed. With nearly seventy films under his belt, almost exclusively in the colorful, controversial realm of Italian exploitation, character actor Luciano Rossi (1934-2005) remains one of Italian cinema's unsung heroes, existing only as a footnote in Italian-focused film criticism. This is the first book to fully examine his career, complete with a brief biography and reviews of all of his known film roles.
