Marcella Theodoli

Post by Ciavazzaro » 30/08/2018, 3:29

Marcella Theodoli in I due carabinieri (1984)

Due Carabinieri - Marcella Theodoli.jpg

Like many other generici active in Italian cinema, such as Irina Wassilchikoff and Andrea Esterhazy, Marcella Theodoli was a noblewoman - more precisely a marquesa. Active since the 1970s, she was never credited, but appeared in numerous films and TV productions up until at least the early 1990s - very frequenly in small party guest roles, but she was also memorable as Massimo Boldi's mother in I due carabinieri (1984).

Marcella Theodoli was identified thanks to the article "Le divine comparse", published in the magazine Epoca n° 1282 (published 3 May 1975).

Marcella Theodoli was apparently never credited in any films, but was identified due to her appearance in Giuseppe Patroni Griffi's Divina creatura (1975) where she plays a party guest (on the right)
Divina Creatura - Marcella Theodoli.jpg

Ghibarian found out that in the magazine Epoca n° 1282 (published 3 May 1975), there's an article about several Roman noblemen and women appearing as extras in the party sequence in Divina creatura. Emiliano was able to purchase this magazine on eBay, and thanks to the text and pictures in this article we were able to determine that our generica is the marquesa Marcella Theodoli.

Here are the complete scans of this article, entitled "Le divine comparse"

And now some of Marcella's other roles, starting with her cult role as a party guest in Quel movimente che mi piace tanto (1975) who winks seductively at poor Enzo Cannavale :D
Quel Movimento - Marcella Theodoli.jpg

Double role for Marcella in The Lonely Lady (1983), an American film shot in Rome:

First as a hospital patient in a wheelchair
Lonely Lady - Marcella Theodoli1.jpg

and then as a woman at the awards show (on the right)
Lonely Lady - Marcella Theodoli2.jpg

Marcella plays a rather unfriendly concierge in the TV series Quando arriva il giudice - episode 4: "Morto per morto" (1986)
Quando Arriva Giudice - Marcella Theodoli.jpg

And another television role in Il vigile urbano (1989) - episode "Il ladro in scarpe gialle" as a widow

Very important discovery!
So far this is Marcella's first cinema role: Io e lui from 1973 as a party guest
Io E Lui - Marcella Theodoli.jpg

So she did not begin her carrer with Patroni Griffi in 1975, (like if i remember wright was written in the magazine article, from which we found her name, in which it was written this was her first movie) but some years before.

In the hotel hall from the third episode of La sconosciuta (1982)

And in the meantime why not a couple of new roles for our noblewoman ?

As party guest in the famous Cinderella '80 (1984)

And as always is always a great thing to look back at older posts, looking the post of Angelo Casadei i found Marcella in Mamma Ebe (1985) too

I've just found Marcella in Mutande pazze (1992), the latest role for her so far!
Mutande Pazze - Marcella Theodoli.jpg
She's a woman at the vernissage and is seems to be particularly interested in this painting of a naked man :p
