Rossano Brazzi Overview:

Legendary actor, Rossano Brazzi, was born on Sep 18, 1916 in Bologna, Italy. Brazzi died at the age of 78 on Dec 24, 1994 in Rome, Italy .


A former lawyer who, after 15 years in the Italian cinema, became one of Hollywood's Latin lovers. The light-haired, courteous, romantic Italian he projected with such relaxed ease was perhaps an extension of his own long and happy marriage. Unable or unwilling, however, to change the image, his international appeal decreased after a few years, and he became involved in a succession of increasingly unlikely ventures. Once claimed to have made 200 films. Died (on Christmas Eve) from a virus affecting the nervous system.
