Quo Vadis (1951)

Please look at the doctor who gives Petronius the deadly injection during his farewell party. Could that be Filippo Scelzo?

And is Cesare Fantoni among the guests? Nerio Bernardi should also be somewhere in the film. Some film magazines even mention Carlo Ninchi during the time when the film was shot.

Not an actor that I know but looks like it could be. what do others think?

I've never found Fantoni, Bernardi or Ninchi in the film. They were all very well known actors who would normally have quite high billing at the start of the 50's and who should have been almost certainly credited if they'd appeared. I have some vague memory of reading somewhere that Ninchi was originally cast, but replaced, though he did appear in Messalina, filmed the same year, so maybe that would have been a conflict of interests. It's always possible they appeared in scenes that were cut.
