He made his directorial debut in 1967 with spaghetti western Bandidos, which marked the beginning of his busy career as a director, making everything from giallo and poliziotteschi films (a sub-genre of crime and action film that emerged in Italy between the 1960s and the 1970s ) to erotic dramas. One such erotic drama includes the well known films amongst sexploitation fans….Venus in Furs.
