Mr. Hyde

Post by PeplumParadise » 14/10/2020, 13:55

The unidentified actor known as "Mr. Hyde" in Terra di fuoco (1939)
Terra Di Fuoco - Eyebrows Man1.jpg

An unidentified balding generico active in Italian films at least from the end of the 30's until the start of the 50's. His very impressive eyebrows will hopefully make him easy to recognise!

My first thought upon seeing him was that he looked like Dr. Jekyll's alter-ego, "Mr. Hyde", so that's the name he's stuck with! Hopefully we will soon find a clearer main image for him.

7 Jahre Glück (1942) as Bank robber.

This German-Italian co-production was made in two versions: a German-speaking one and an Italian-speaking one. The Italian version is named Sette anni di felicità and it replaces some of the German actors with Italian ones, which means that these different versions are essentially two separate films. I've only seen the German version, so I can't say for sure whether he also appears in the Italian one, but I'd be extremely surprised if doesn't as I can't imagine they'd bother to re-cast non-speaking bit parts or extras.

Lo sceicco bianco (1952) as Mental patient.

Latest role yet and it's a Fellini, being pushed around by Romano Milani, whose usually impressive eyebrows pale in comparison.
