Maurice Poli (born 2 December 1933) is a French actor, mainly active in Italian productions. He is regarded as one of the few actors to have taken part in virtually all the genres developed in Italy in over more than thirty years.

Born in Bizerte, Tunisia, Poli made his film debut in 1961, in a very small role in Mauro Bolognini's The Lovemakers. He later alternated leading roles and supporting roles, being often cast as a tough guy or a villain. Following a fashion of the time for American-sounding stage names, in the second half of the 1960s he was credited Monty Greenwood in several spaghetti westerns.

Biography

Il tourne dans plusieurs séries comme Belle et Sébastien (1964), Frédéric le gardian (1965) où il tient le rôle principal, ce qui lui vaut une grande popularité (on lui prête même une liaison avec sa partenaire Geneviève Grad). Mais c'est en Italie qu'il accomplit la majeure partie de sa carrière, souvent sous le nom de Monty Greenwood, dans des films de série B : westerns spaghettis, films policiers, d'aventures ou érotiques.

Les Chiens enragés est un film italien réalisé par Mario Bava tourné en 1974, mais le film a été saisi par les tribunaux durant les derniers stades de la production lorsque le producteur a fait faillite après que le principal investisseur du film meure dans un accident de voiture et n'est finalement sorti qu'en 1998 en VHS et réédité en 2007 sous une forme légèrement différente, sur DVD aux États-Unis sous le titre Kidnapped. Le titre original Semaforo rosso (traduction : feu rouge) est issu d'une scène clé du film dans laquelle les personnages font un arrêt fatal à un feu de circulation, cet évènement déclenche tous les évènements de l'intrigue.
