Giorgio Ubaldi

Post by PeplumParadise » 11/02/2022, 13:59

Is anyone familiar with a stuntman called Giorgio Ubaldi? According to his IMDb page he has around 45 credits as Master of Arms or Stuntman, mostly in peplums, westerns and Bud Spencer movies. With that many stunt credits you would expect he would be one of our best-known stuntmen, yet he seems to be a complete unknown with no definitive images to be found.

IMDb only lists 5 films where he appears as an actor, with only 2 giving roles. Of these 2 I was unable to work out who is the character he should play in Le notti di Lucrezia Borgia, while the actor playing the role of Harry in Password: Uccidete agente Gordon (below) does not seem like he would be a stuntman, doesn't perform any stunts and doesn't look at all familiar, so I suspect it may be a mis-identification.

I came to the same conclusion as you with Password... I've been intending to do further research but haven't really got around to it I guess, maybe frustration caused by not finding a starting place V:V .

Yes, his only other ID as "gladiator" in Il gladiatore invincibile isn't of much help in a film with multiple unidentified gladiators and my best copy isn't great. It was shot in Spain, so I assume most of them are Spanish stuntman who I am less familiar with, though I could probably get images of all of them and attempt to work it out by process of elimination

He was an active Italian stuntmen, one of those who started in the 50s. He is most likely the father of Massimiliano Ubaldi, who is a very active stunt coordinator today.
