A multi-talented man
Italian spaghetti Western actor Bud Spencer, who passed away on June 27 at age 86, began his film career late in life. Before he became an actor, he earned a law degree and became the first Italian to swim 100 meters freestyle in under a minute. He swam for Italy at the 1952 and 1956 Olympic Games. Spencer was born on October 31, 1929, in Naples as Carlo Pedersoli.
