Italian director, assistant director, writer and actor Tonino Valerii died in Abruzzo, Italy on October 13th. He was 82. Born Antonio Valerii on May 20, 1934 in Montorio al Vomano, Teramo, Italy, he started his film career as an assistant director on Sergio Leone's “A Fistful of Dollars” (1965), before moving on to direct by himself. Among his best-known films are “Day of Anger” (1968) “The Price of Power” (1969), “A Reason to Live, a Reason to Die” (1972) and “My Name Is Nobody” (1973).

If you haven't read a copy of Roberto Curti's new biography on Valerii it is well worth it.

      I just got through watching My Name Is Nobody on DVD last week. Day Of Anger is one of my favorites of his and a great teaming of Guiliano Gemma and LVC.

        This is very very saddening. I can't believe it, but I guess it's not to be unexpected.
