John Benedy in La tua vita per mio figlio:

John Benedy, real name Giovanni De Benedettis, is an italian actor. He works in fotoromanzi in the 60's and (I presume) in the 70's as well. His filmography, as far as I know, consists in only 9 movies, but his particular face (he had always villain roles) makes him unforgettable... at least to me

I found some infos on the web, so I can tell you that he was born in 1938 in Mesagne, near Brindisi, and still lives in that part of Italy, in another little town called Serranova.

He usually had big moustaches and a strange hairstyle with a combover, very very 70's...

As you mentioned he was in many fotoromanzi neri, including many, many numbers of Killing and Kimba, re dell'Africa nera (both from Ponzoni Editore).

He was also in more traditional (romantic) fotoromanzi. This is him in Barbara N. 11: "Tramonto sul mare" (November 1971) - credited as "John Benedit" here:

Benedy also had several uncredited roles in the 1960s. For example, he has a role in the famous Visconti film Rocco e i suoi fratelli (1960). I know this because there is an actor profile on him in Killing N. 25 and several of his film roles are mentioned here. Unfortunately, I can't find out anything about some of the titles. I think maybe they are the titles used during production and that the titles were changed before the films reached the cinemas.

Here is Benedy's actor profile in Killing 25:

Now I've got to watch Rocco e i suoi fratelli so that I can try to identify him... I guess from his signature that his last name was De Benedettis and not De Benedittis, I'll correct my first post

And I think that Il mercenario could be La congiura dei dieci, directed by Baccio Bandini. In France it was called Le mercenaire...

I suspect that Covo di spie a Casablanca is the film Noches de Casablanca a.k.a. Spionaggio a Casablanca (1963). Not sure about the others, though...

You're right with no doubt, because the french title is Casablanca, nid d'espions...
