Never heard about this. Came across it by accident. Gives a whole new meaning to "SOMETHING TO DO WITH DEATH". Sad.

Biography for
Al Mulock.

He committed suicide on the set of his last movie C'era una volta il West (1968) by jumping from a hotel, on location in Guadix, Spain. One of the film's screenwriters Mickey Knox and production manager Claudio Mancini were in a hotel room when they saw his body pass their window. Mancini put Mulock in his car to drive him to the hospital. Knox claimed in an interview that before that, director Sergio Leone said to Mancini "get the costume, we need the costume". Mulock was wearing the costume he wore in the movie when he jumped.

yeah it is sad... can't remember where i heard it... but since it obviously wasn't here it must have been in the STDWD book... must have been pretty short on costumes to need it... how many people wore the duster costume? 7 or 8.

well, jj we ought to make a list of possibilities as this remains such a mystery.  i would venture to say many things making this another  long post....but most of all i would say it's a personal question between
al and his higer power.

He played Knuckles, one of the three waiting at the station.

he plays the ginger gunman who cracks his knuckles and shuts the door on the station-master at the start. He doesnt say anything and is kind of ignored.
