Life and career

Musolino was born in Reggio Calabria into a humble family, and lived as a fisherman.[1] During the military service he held in Venice, he was chosen by Renato Castellani for the leading role of Antonio in the neorealist drama Two Cents Worth of Hope.[1] Following the success of the film, Musolino appeared in several films, mainly in supporting roles.[1] In 1964, he dedicated himself to the production of genre films, often working with director Edoardo Mulargia, with whom he also wrote several screenplays.[1][2] In 1968, one year before his premature death, he was the director to two low-budget spaghetti westerns, in which he was credited as Glenn Vincent Davis.[1][2]
