He began working as a stuntman before being offered a role in the 1958 comedy, "Venice, the Moon and You."

Based on an acclaimed novel, the large-scale production featured Gemma in the role of Garibaldi's General.

He had starring roles in "The Return of Ringo" in 1965, "Blood for a Silver Dollar" a year later, and "For a Few Extra Dollars," films that gained him an international reputation. After the Western craze waned, Gemma continued working steadily. He logged a starring role in the 1976 wartime drama "Il deserto dei tartari," earning a David di Donatello, the Italian equivalent of an Academy Award, for his portrayal of Major Mattis in the film.
