Romano Moraschini in the fotoromanzo Killing N. 34: "Il bacio della morte" (1968)

Romano Moraschini is another generico, who made many fotoromanzi (especially "Killing"), but of course he was also in movies, including a lot of peplums and westerns. Apparently, he was only credited in fotoromanzi - never in films.

Romano was a very prolific bad guy actor in fotoromanzi and he was especially active in the notorious Killing fotoromanzi in the 1960s. Here are a few of his Killing roles:

Killing N. 3: "Bambole e dollari" (July 1966)
Killing 3 - Romano Moraschini.jpg

Killing N. 7: "Notte di terrore" (November 1966)
Killing 7 - Romano Moraschini.jpg

Killing N. 20: "Sul filo del terrore" (1 July 1967)
Killing 20 - Romano Moraschini.jpg

Killing N. 24: "La torre della tortura" (1 September 1967)
Killing 24 - Romano Moraschini.jpg

Killing N. 32: "Nuda per il boia" (1 January 1968)
Killing 32 - Romano Moraschini.jpg


Actor profiles were created for a lot of the regular Killing actors, and one for Romano was published in Killing N. 27: "L'implacabile vendetta" (15 October 1967)

Looking at the pictures in his actor profile, it looks like Romano appeared in a lot of westerns. It's also interesting to note that in these pictures, he can be seen together with his 'generico' colleagues Angelo Casadei and Giuseppe Marrocco.

As indicated by his Killing actor profile, Romano shows up in several westerns.
Here he is in Sansone e il tesoro degli Incas (1964) as a bartender who knocks out a few of the saloon brawlers with beer bottles :D

He was also active in peplum. Here in I due gladiatori (1964)
Due Gladiatori - Romano Moraschini1.jpg
Due Gladiatori - Romano Moraschini2.jpg
It wasn't possible to get any good shots, but it's Romano for sure as one of the imprisoned villagers


And here with Tony Casale in Golia alla conquista di Bagdad (1965)
Golia Alla Conquista - Casale + Moraschini.jpg

And as one of the prisoners who are freed in La sfida dei giganti (1965)
La Sfida Dei Giganti - Romano Moraschini1.jpg

Romano also appears in the epic production La Bibbia (1966), seen here in the middle with shaved head and dark paint under his eyes as one of the sinful people in the 'Noah's Ark' sequence

Moving on to some 1970s roles.

Romano can be glimpsed very briefly as a prison guard in Detenuto in attesa di giudizio (1971)
Detenuto In Attesa - Romano Moraschini.jpg

And here as a policeman in the great Umberto Lenzi giallo Il coltello di ghiaccio (1972)
Coltello - Romano Moraschini.jpg

He also appears as a policeman in another Umberto Lenzi giallo, Sette orchidee macchiate di rosso (1972)
Sette Orchidee - Romano Moraschini.jpg

In Anastasia mio fratello (1973) he's a mobster, seen here singing in the church
Anastasia - Romano Moraschini.jpg

He also appears briefly in Zanna Bianca (1973), together with Luigi Antonio Guerra and Tony Casale
Zanna Bianca - Romano Moraschini.jpg
They play characters named Carter, Crocker and Covensky, but I don't know who is named what. IMDb lists Romano as playing Carter, but that's just a supposition, really.


He's also in the audience at the wrestling match in Anche gli angeli mangiano fagioli (1973). I'm not able to get any good shots, but this is definitely Romano (with a black hat) cheering and shouting during the fight

Romano in Tutti figli di Mammasantissima (1973) as a mobster

And let's not forget Romano's role as the executioner who flays poor Florinda Bolkan alive at the end of Flavia la monaca musulmana (1974)

Also seen briefly in Salon Kitty (1975), carrying the stretcher with the poor Rosemarie Lindt

And here finally as a prison inmate in Napoli spara (1977) - the latest discovery of him so far

Romano's topic is now fully restored - with all pictures and roles from the old forum. Which means it's time for some new discoveries! ;)

Let's start with another peplum role.
Romano as a guard in L'ultimo gladiatore (1964)
L'Ultimo Gladiatore - Romano Moraschini.jpg

And here as a townsman in the western 1000 dollari sul nero (1966)
1000 Dollari Sul Nero - Moraschini.jpg

And finally as a man keeping watch in Girolimoni, il mostro di Roma (1972)
Girolimoni - Romano Moraschini.jpg

Furthermore, I've also found Romano in I due evasi di Sing-Sing (1964) as one of the guards dragging Franco and Ciccio to the death chamber at the start of the film, but the version I have is so awful that I can only post these awful screenshots
Due Evasi - Romano Moraschini1.jpg

If anyone has a better version, then please replace these awful pics.

Romano just keeps popping up everywhere.

Now I've found him as a cop in the famous Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto (1970)!
