Description   [from Freebase]

Al Mulock (June 30, 1926 – May 1968) was a character actor, born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He attended the Lee Strasberg's Actors Studio, then with David deKeyser started "The London Studio" which taught "the Method" to British actors. Mulock became active in the British film industry in the 1950s and early 60s making numerous appearances in various British television series and films. He is best known for his roles in the Spaghetti Western films, most notably in his two collaborations with Sergio Leone, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West. The opening sequence of Once Upon a Time in the West was scheduled for four days. Mickey Knox, screenwriter for Once Upon a Time in the West, and production manager Claudio Mancini witnessed Mulock's May 1968 suicide in Guadix, Spain as his body passed their hotel window near the end of the shoot. From Knox’s book The Good, The Bad, & the Dolce Vita (Nation Books) “The film had a large crew and our base was in Gidaux, a small, hot, dusty village that had minimal accommodations. Most of us were staying in a three-story building that passed as an 'accommodation'.
