Ugo Mari, is another very active generico, present in movies from at least the the late 1930s and until the mid 1970s.

He lived in Rome, in Via Acherusio, 44[1].

He appears very often in films starring the legendary comic Totò, where he often has small speaking roles, but he was apparently credited in only two films: Daniele Cortis (1947) and Il più grande amore (Suor Letizia) (1956).

[1] Cineguida di Dante Lazzaro 1943-XXI.

I know Ugo! I actually have a very old fotoromanzo where he is credited! "Anime nella bufera", published in the magazine Tipo from N. 37 (18 June 1949) to N. 50 (17 September 1949)!

Here are a couple of new and really nice roles for Ugo!

He's a party guest playing strip poker in Totò, Peppino e... la dolce vita (1961) :D
Toto Peppino Dolce Vita - Ugo Mari.jpg

Cool little speaking role for him in Rita, la figlia americana (1965) as an audience member who complains during the concert conducted by Totò and then finally leaves in anger
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari1.jpg
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari2.jpg
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari3.jpg

In spite of this, he's back as an audience member at another Totò concert, but looks no more impressed this time :p
Rita Figlia Americana - Mari4.jpg

Ugo can also be spotted as a patient in the waiting room in Il medico della mutua (1968)
Medico Della Mutua - Ugo Mari.jpg

And in Lady Barbara (1970) he's an old man playing scopa with Carlo Delle Piane - another brief speaking role

The earliest movie role for now: Cameriera bella presenza offresi... (1951) where he appears briefly as an admirer of Vittorio De Sica who congratulates him after his performance

He's also in La fortuna di essere donna (1956) as a man at the Grand Hotel, trying to squeeze past Sophia Loren to get to the buffet table

And a brief but very cool speaking role in Satyricon (1969) - the Polidoro version - as a rich, old homosexual named Pistone
