You have identified this standing drummer in Il corsaro della mezzaluna (1957) as Wilbert Bradley, but although the pictures aren't very clear, I don't think it's him, but actually Llew Trotman in an early role

Likewise, you have this soldier on the right as being Bradley but I think this is Trotman once again in his earliest non-musician role

In fact, I think Trotman also appears as a guard or slave earlier in the film (around 44 minutes) but my copy is bad

From the pics you posted of Edith Peters, it looks like you have a better version, so can you please check these scenes when you have the time?
You could be right in both cases as they seem less likely roles for Bradley.

Unfortunately the better quality copy is cropped somewhat, so the DVD copy from Bradley's topic is the only version where you see him clearly. I'll leave it to your judgement if you are sure it's Trotman to delete my posts from Bradley's topic.

Thank you :) I'd say it's really Trotman in the guard role, and it does appear to be him in the soldier role too.

As for Il corsaro della mezzaluna, the image isn't all that sharp so it's hard to say for sure. Bradley is credited, but then again, he also has other choreographer credits where he does not appear on-screen, and to me it looks more like Trotman than Bradley. Plus we know drums was one of the instruments Trotman used to play, so that part fits.

Would you agree that this is our unidentified "Mr. Pickwick" in this fotoromanzo from 1951? Because if it is, then he is unidentified no more ;)

Obviously, I'm not Nick, but .... looking at the 1953 images from the Don Camillo series (viewtopic.php?f=63&t=1396&hilit=Pickwic ... =10#p47108), there is not the slightest doubt it's the same person (the colour & unusual [for the times] long hair, the beard, the nose)... Sorry for the interference.

Thank you both for the feedback. Since we are all in agreement then, I think we can officially declare that our man is ROMOLO GIULIANI. A very lucky identification indeed as he is not listed on IMDb or ANICA, though his name does appear Christoffer Slotte's list of generici from the 1940s and early 1950s: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=471

La spada e la croce (1958) credited, as Man who calls Mary a prostitute.

There have been various identifications of Giulio around the internet, none of which look remotely like him. After careful searching I think the most likely candidate is the man in the centre here in red, however his face isn't too clear so I'm marking this as an uncertain identification. It could also be possible that Giulio does not appear at all, Franco Fantasia (billed below Giulio) is nowhere to be found.

Nick, which guy in red? The man pointing with his finger in the second pic?
