Life and career

Born Raffaele Baldassarre in Rome, Lazio, he started his career in the late 1950s, being cast in many peplum and adventure films, alternating between stereotypical roles of the young villain and the loyal friend of the protagonist.[1] Following a fashion of the time for American-sounding stage names, in the second half of the 1960s he was credited "Ralph Baldwyn" or "Ralph Baldwin" in several spaghetti westerns.[1] Baldassarre was active until mid-eighties, usually cast in supporting roles, and he occasionally also worked as a producer.[1][2]
