Robledo is probably best known for his roles in Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Western films of the 1960s and 1970s, portraying minor characters in the trilogy of films A Fistful of Dollars (1964),[1] For a Few Dollars More (1965),[2] The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966),[3] and Once Upon a Time in the West in 1968.[4] He acted in many other westerns prolifically including the tortured sheriff in Four of the Apocalypse (1975).[citation needed]

His most notable role in Leone's films (where he is more recognizable) is in For a Few Dollars More when he plays the character of a cornered enemy of the main evil villain who tortures him and murders his family before killing him[citation needed].

Robledo died in September 2006 in Madrid.[5]
