Mark Damon has died. The producer and actor was 91 years old

Damon was born Alan Harris on April 22, 1933 in Chicago, Illinois. When he was performing in theater in high school, he noticed him Groucho Marx and offered me a job in front of the camera. Damon, however, chose dental school, which he later switched to studying management. During this time, he started attending acting classes.

He began his professional career in film in 1956. In 1960, he received the Golden Globe for best newcomer for his performance in “The Fall of the House of Usher”, directed by the recently deceased Roger Corman.

He then moved to Italy, where he became a star of spaghetti westerns. In the 1970s, he began his production career. He founded the Producers Sales Organization and introduced American films to other markets. He turned out to be one of the key people in the development of independent cinema.

He produced, among others “Ship” and “A never-ending story” Wolfgang Petersen, “Monster” with the Oscar-winning role of Charlize Theron and “Survivor” With Mark Wahlberg. He worked until the end of his days. There are seven more films he has produced waiting to be released.
