Clarence Leroy Van Cleef Jr. was a famous yesteryear American actor best known for his negative roles in films like ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ and ‘For a Few Dollars More’. His features, including steely eyes and hawk-like nose added with his finesse in acting saw him essaying several notable roles of Western arch-villains for decades. His rich body of work both as hero and anti-hero spanning over 38 years encompass 90 film and 109 television appearances. He did few odd jobs and had a stint in the United States Navy during the Second World War before foraying into acting with the 1950 play ‘Mister Roberts’. He made his film debut with ‘High Noon’ and went on to play minor villainous roles for more than a decade before landing up with his big break in the Sergio Leone directed 1965 spaghetti Western film ‘For a Few Dollars More’. The film garnered him attention and proved to be a turning point in his career. He rose to stardom with yet another Sergio Leone directed epic Spaghetti Western film ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ where he played “The Bad”.
What followed was an array of hero and anti-hero roles in several westerns and action films like ‘Sabata’, ‘El Condor’ and ‘Take a Hard Ride’ that only furthered his fame.
