Fausto Tozzi was an Italian actor who occasionally doubled as director or screenwriter. He entered films in 1949 with Under the Sun of Roma. Most of his appearances of the '50s were in Italian or European productions that seldom saw the light of day in English-speaking countries, though he later showed up in a number of Hollywood-financed films which required Italian or Spanish location shoots. In this capacity, Fausto Tozzi played supporting roles in such internationally distributed films as The Wonders of Aladdin (1960) (as the cowardly Grand Vizier), Constantine and the Cross (1961), The Agony and the Ecstacy (1965) (as one of the foremen overseeing the Vatican projects of Michelangelo), The Valachi Papers (1972) (as notorious gangster Albert Anastasia), Crazy Joe (1974) and March or Die (1977).
