Gordon Mitchell was an actor and athlete, active in Italian films throughout the 1960's to 1980's and in American films in the 1950's and 1990's.

Gordon's topic is still in preparation. I have posted the topic prematurely so we can have all his roles from film topics together. Please don't post until the topic is completed.

  21. Frankenstein ‘80 .... Dr. Otto Frankenstein (credited)

Titles to check
  • Prisoner of War (1954) IMDb in "bit role". I failed to recognise him, but the copy I found was rather soft and there are a lot of prisoners of war who are not seen clearly enough to identify (but may be if an HD copy should appear).
  • Around the World in 80 Days (1956) IMDb as "Extra". I searched the film quite thoroughly and I'm sure if Gordon appeared at all prominently I would have found him, but you have thousands of extras, many made up to look like natives of the countries visited, and no clues as to where to look for him, so if he only appears in the background it's quite possible I missed him, or else he is there, but not seen identifiably.

No Mitchell!
Titles where Gordon is listed as appearing somewhere online, but cannot be found. There always has to be one!
  • The Man with the Golden Arm (1955) IMDb as Police officer. I searched an HD print of the film several times, closely examining all the actors playing police officers, and Gordon is nowhere to be found.
  • The Spirit of St. Louis (1957) IMDb with no role. Again I searched an HD print of the film several times with no luck finding Gordon and I'm certain that if he appeared identifiably I would have found him.
  • The Young Lions (1958) IMDb with no role. Yet again I thoroughly searched an HD print and yet again if he is there he is unidentifiable.
  • Spartacus (1960) IMDb as Gladiator. There is a similar-looking actor playing a gladiator, but unanimous opinion from my peplum group was that it is not Gordon.

Peter Gunn (1959 TV series) Season 2, episode 7: "The Feathered Doll", as Sideshow strongman.

I'm amazed that Gordon's rather revealing shorts made it past the US censors!
