Biography

Chicago, Illinois, USA
John Landis began his career in the mail room of 20th Century-Fox. A high-school dropout, 18-year-old Landis made his way to Yugoslavia to work as a production assistant on Kelly's Heroes (1970). Remaining in Europe, Landis found work as an actor, extra and stuntman in many of the Spanish/Italian "spaghetti" westerns.

Clad in a Rick Baker-designed gorilla suit, Landis starred as "Schlockthropus", the missing link. Read more...
