RIP Mickey Knox

Abraham ‘Mickey’ Knox, known to all Europena western fans for writing the English dialogue for “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” passed away in Los Angeles, California on November 15, 2013. He was 88. Born in New York City on December 12, 1921 Knox began his career in show business as an actor who appeared in several films before being blacklisted. Moving to Italy to find work, he worked on the English dialogue for “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” (1966), “Black Jack” (1968) and “Once Upon a Time in the West” and appeared in a small role in “Beyond the Law” (1968) with Lee Van Cleef. When the blacklist ended, he returned to acting, appearing in such films as “Bolero” (1984) and “The Godfather Part III” (1990). Woody Harrelson's character in Natural Born Killers was named after him.
