Il bidone (1955)

Post by Johan Melle » 16/11/2019, 15:50

DCI, IMDb and the book "I film di Federico Fellini" all list the following actors in Il bidone (1955):

Amedeo Trilli
Tiziano Cortini
Gino Buzzanca
Gustavo De Nardo
Yami Kamadeva
Tullio Tomadoni

None of these are credited in the film itself. In fact, Amedeo Trilli only appears for some seconds in the shanty town sequence, so if he is listed, there's always the possibility that the "Eternal Croupier" (who has a little speaking role as the nightclub manager), or "Fruit Man" or "Fat man with squared head" (who both play party guests) might be among the names listed. The two interesting names here are Yami Kamadeva and Tullio Tomadoni.

I don't know if Kamadeva is male or female, but he or she is also supposed to appear in La strada (1954) and
François il contrabbandiere (1953).

Tomadoni has a few credits listed here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0866349/
It's probably too much to hope for that he could be one of our unknowns, but I guess you never know...

Tomadoni is credited on IMDb as playing the Blind Man in Barabba, so if that is correct then this is him

and here he is again in the 1964 series I miserabili. Maybe not crap, with only 6 credited roles he could still be a new generico

Gino Buzzanca is here with the black moustache.

Do you have good images of Trilli in the film? I'm just in the last stages of preparing his topic and only found this fairly poor copy with burned-in subtitles

Yeah, I have Il bidone on DVD. I'll fix pics of Buzzance in a little while. Trilli, from what I can remember, is among the shanty dwellers...

Or did you only need pics of Trilli, and not Buzzanca?

Yes, it's Trilli I need good quality pics of, I have him but they're the same quality as the Buzzanca pics with subs
