Abraham "Mickey" Knox (December 24, 1921, although some sources cite January 1, 1922 − November 15, 2013) was an American actor with nearly 80 films to his credit. He was also a screenwriter, film producer and novelist. Blacklisted during the McCarthy era, he was forced to move to Italy to work. His screenwriter credits include the English adaptation of Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.[1]

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino named his lead character, portrayed by Woody Harrelson, after Knox in the film Natural Born Killers.[2]

Knox's 2004 memoir is titled The Good, the Bad and the Dolce Vita: The Adventures of an Actor in Hollywood, Paris and Rome.
