Don-Chisciotte-e-Sancio-Panza-2.jpg
Armando Tortorici, in
Don Chisciotte e Sancio Panza (1968)
Class of 1941[1], of probable Sicilian origins (deducing it by his surname), Armando Tortorici begins his film career alongside the comic duo Franco and Ciccio. After he participated in several Italian Crime movies, the so called Poliziotteschi and he continued to work in the cinema always as an extra (generico) even when the comic couple which brought him to the fore, had only gone only on TV. He had a quite substantial credited role in the movie Puttana galera (1976).

His last news is dated 1997, that he, aged 56, was arrested for being a pickpocket in trams. In a newspaper article it is clearly mentioned he had played a cop in 1993's movie La scorta.[1]

I have been searching through my old fotoromanzo magazines to look for "new" generici and in one magazine I found an article about Enzo Cerusico that includes a picture from the film No. Il caso è felicemente risolto (1973) - and look who is in the picture together with Cerusico!

No Il Caso - Moustaches.jpg

Emiliano reply: I cannot find our man in that role. In the movie, for this scene there are others actors that play the policemen.
No Il Caso - Different Actors.jpg

This thing is happened probably because they have tried most photogenic actors to make the publicity photos.
