This should be Angelo Galassi in I vampiri and Jessica. Again I don't see any obvious matches, one of the guards possibly?

The only other credited role for Giacomo Tchang is in Maciste alla corte del Gran Khan, where IMDb credits him as playing "Old Chinese priest", a role description which is almost as unhelpful as their description of him playing "Old Chinese man" in Marco Polo. The most obvious candidate is this one, who I do think appears to be the same actor as the one I potentially pinned for Tchang in the role of Chang.

Trying to identify Roberto Paoletti, according to IMDb and other sources this should be Paoletti in Un dollaro a testa and Il giuramento di Zorro, however these don't seem like the same actor to me. The actor below from Il giuramento di Zorro seems a lot more like the actor from Un dollaro a testa, and I think he could be playing one of the guards who chases Polo, not a large role but I don't see anyone similar among the other roles. Any opinions?

I suppose that could possibly be Fortunato Arena to the right (our right, not his) of Pierre Cressoy, but I'm by no means certain.

The flat-faced oriental actor further to the right looks like he could be the same one who appears in I mongoli and I lancieri neri.

Isn't that man in Un dollaro a testa actually Sergio Sagnotti, who there were a few postings about not long ago?

Not sure, but looks like it could be the same guy, yes.

This is Poing Ping Sam, identified from his credited role in The Sinister Man. Unfortunately you don't see his face too clearly, but from what you do see I think he has to be The Pilgrim Monk

Could be, yes, but not seen clearly enough for me to be sure.

Having seen this oci of Anna Maestri, with Silvana Mangano: https://www.tototruffa2002.it/biografie ... -anna.html, i'd say she is the proposed actress, quite sure
Yes, most definitely! Unfortunately, I don't recognize any of the other unidentifieds.

Not somebody I know so no idea, those are the roles identified for Paoletti online, but they obviously aren't the same person so I was looking at the available possibilities

I think for Poing Ping Sam and Giacomo Tchang those "seems likes" are as good as it's going to get. Certainly neither of the other 2 leading orientals look like Poing Ping and there are no orientals I could see in Maciste alla corte del Gran Khan who look at all like the actor playing Tai Fu, so by process of deduction and looking alike I think those must be the ID's.

The roles of Chang, The Pilgrim Monk and Tai Fu are all quite major roles, much bigger than any unidentified roles by western actors or any other oriental roles, so I'm sure really must be the 3 unidentified credited oriental actors
