The Italian scribe who had a long-running collaboration with Dino De Laurentiis and co-wrote two classic Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns died Sunday of cancer in Rome at 87. Luciano Vincenzoni is best known stateside for providing quotable lines for the Man With No Name, played by Clint Eastwood in Leone’s mid-’60s films The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and For A Few Dollars More. But Vincenzoni also wrote dozens of other films including such notable Italian pics as Seduced And Abandoned (1964), The Birds, The Bees And The Italians (1966) and De Laurentiis’ The Great War (1960). His more recent credits include Malena (2000) and the Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner Raw Deal (1986).
