Uncredited actors listed by other sources
  • Lars Bloch - IMDb as Eric. There is no such character, but maybe he appears anyway?
  • Moira Orfei - IMDb as Peasant girl - Does not appear
  • Renato Turi - IMDb as Narrator. There is a narrator providing voice-over at the start of the film, but with no credit there is no way to confirm the identification unless someone recognises his voice.

I posted these possible ID's in Quick Identifications, but didn't get any response. Maybe I'll have more luck here?

Enrico Chiappafreddo (2nd role)?

Yes for Chiappafreddo and Sagnotti, in my opinion. I'm undecided for Mattei, too.

N. 32 must be Luciano Foti.
N. 44 the lady in far right is Milena Vukotic maybe in her first role or in any case in one of her first because she started acting at the cimena in 1961 - and she was a dancer too.
In my opinion a big yes for Mattei, Sagnotti and Chiappafreddo.
No Lars or Moira in these among these pics.

Yes for all three (Chiappafreddo etc.) from me. Great find für Milena Vukotic (who's also in 43 in the same picture position)!

After a third and fourth looking - the guy playing a guard in 51+52 on the center left is reminding a tiny bit of Lars Bloch, but in my opinion he is not tall enough.

Chiappafredo, Foti, Mattei, Sagnotti and Vukotic added. I'll leave Bloch for now as it's not certain.
