Uncredited actors

Giovanni Bonadonna
as Fighter with Vulcan

Franco Beltramme
as Soldier

chiappafreddo2.jpg
Enrico Chiappafreddo
as Fighter with Vulcan

mauroni.jpg
Giulio Mauroni
as Soldier of the Lizard Man

mr egg8.jpg
"Mr. Egg"
as Vulcan's assistant
He is probably the credited actor Giuseppe Trinca, but we are unable to confirm this

santarelli6.jpg
Amerigo Santarelli
as Fighter with Vulcan

trilli6.jpg
Amedeo Trilli
as Neptune
It is a big mystery why Trilli is uncredited here, since his is a major role in the film

Franco Ukmar
as Fighter with Vulcan

giancarlo2.jpg
Giancarlo Ukmar
as Fighter with Vulcan

giovanni4.jpg
Giovanni Ukmar
as Soldier

sergio3.jpg
Sergio Ukmar
as Fighter with Vulcan

Uncredited actors listed by other sources but not identified
  • Luigi Ciavarro (IMDb) No role
  • Leo Coleman (IMDb) as Dancer. He is credited as choreographer, but there are no dancers in the film apart from Bella Cortez.
  • Romano Gaspari (IMDb) No role
  • Leopoldo Savona (IMDb) No role, but they say he should be credited as "Leo Coleman" (credited only as choreographer), yet they also list Coleman separately. We have previously established that Coleman and Savona are not the same person, and neither appear here.

Unidentified actors
Roles that could be credited
ferroneo.jpg
ferroneo2.jpg
Having established that it's Edda Ferronao playing Juno, by process of deduction this must surely be Yvonne Sire as Eride.

stefilongo.jpg
stefilongo2.jpg
stefilongo3.jpg
stefilongo4.jpg
stefilongo5.jpg
stefilongo6.jpg
stefilongo7.jpg
Eulo - I did think this was credited actor Renzo Stefilongo, but now I'm not so sure.

neptune servant.jpg
neptune servant2.jpg
neptune servant3.jpg
Neptune's servant - maybe credited Ugo Sabetta? He has no other credits, so who knows!

pr1a.jpg
pr2a.jpg
pr3.jpg
Prominently seen prisoner (in blue). Assuming that it's Sire playing Juno, then this role must be uncredited.

ruffini.jpg
ruffini2.jpg
ruffini4.jpg
ruffini5.jpg
Guard holding - - We've established that this is NOT Claudio Ruffini, which doesn't really help much.

Iloosh Khoshabe's stunt double

Adonis is indeed played by Paolo Pieri. I just looked at him in the fotoromanzo "Only You" (published 1957-58) where he is credited with a character name, and it's most definitely the same guy.

Edda Ferronao, however, has been incorrectly identified. That's not her as Erida. Edda is actually the one who plays Juno.

And 53-54 looks like Franco Beltramme.

Ferronao corrected, which I guess leaves Yvonne Sire as Eride.

Pieri and Beltramme added

51 is maybe Giancarlo Ukmar again and 6 could maybe be a second role for Mr. Egg.

Sorry, I don't see Aldo Canti in that pic. No jaws, no chin, no nose.

Addendum: After looking at it a few days later, I think it's the same guy as in 50...
