Uncertain identification by process of deduction. IMDb lists this role for "John Stevenson Lang", but he was a much older actor, so "Steve Lang", who has only one other credit, must be a different actor and possibly a pseudonym for an Italian actor

I think 42 is probably Bruno Ukmar, but not absolutely certain.

The rest of the generici seem to be unknowns. I'm not certain where this film was shot other than some scenes at the Monte Gelato and Mamore waterfalls. The credits don't give any clues other than the entire production crew would seem to be Italian, so my guess would be that it was filmed elsewhere in Italy rather than Rome, accounting for the lack of familiar faces.

Ciavazzaro previously provided fotoromanzo images of unidentified credited actress Noelle Dumas (this is her only known credited film role), but it looks like no final decision was reached on which unidentified actress she was. (viewtopic.php?f=56&t=475&hilit=noelle+d ... 030#p50918)

Mauro favoured the priestess in 45 / 46 / 54, while Johan's vote went to the handmaiden in 7 / 8 / 26.

I think I'm inclined to go with Mauro, the priestess seems to resemble the fotoromanzo actress and I think it would be far more likely that the priestess would be a credited role rather than one of many handmaidens (even if she is seen slightly more prominently than the others). Any other opinions to help us decide would be welcomed.

10 is Giovanni Ukmar, again.
39, second from right Gilberto Galimberti (and maybe 49)
41 looks suspiciously like Clemente Ukmar
42 Bruno Ukmar, yes.

I don't think it's Galimberti in 39, just someone with a similar look, but maybe yes in 49?

Here's another shot of the possible Clemente, not sure, again maybe, it would make sense for him to appear alongside Bruno, but not certain...

I'M definitely more sure Gilberto being 39 than the other way round. But I agree we disagree in this:-)))
Btw, it's possibly Rocco Lerro in 39 as last in line.
