About Lee Van Cleef

  • Clarence Leroy Van Cleef Jr.
  • (January 9, 1925 – December 16, 1989), was an American actor best known for his roles in Spaghetti Westerns such as For A Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
  • Hatchet-faced with piercing eyes, he declined to have his nose altered to play a sympathetic character in his film debut, High Noon, and was relegated to a non-speaking outlaw as a result.
  • For a decade he was typecast as a minor villain, his "sinister" features overshadowing his acting skills.
  • After suffering serious injuries in a car crash, Van Cleef had begun to lose interest in his declining career by the time Sergio Leone gave him a major role in For a Few Dollars More.
  • The film made him a box-office draw, especially in Europe.
