Maurizio Pradeaux, who has died aged 91, was an Italian filmmaker who started his career as production assistant and assistant director in the early 60s before he shot his very first movie "Ramon the Mexican" in 1965.

Several other films followed, like heist movies, war films and two Gialli for which he is best known ("Death Carries a Cane" and "Death Steps in the Dark"). From the late 80s to the early 00s, he focused on the distribution of soft erotic flicks and movies from Asia via his company Megastar Pictures. In the last years he made himself a name as an author of historic novels like "Raffaela e La Fornarina" or "L'Amore Occulto".
