Tedeschi, Alessandro

Post by Johan Melle » 27/08/2018, 16:37

Alessandro Tedeschi in 00-2 agenti segretissimi (1964)
tedeschi 002.jpg

One of the most peculiar of all Italian generici, Alessandro Tedeschi is instantly recognizable due to his bald head and very thick glasses. He bears a strong physical resemblance to the well-known generica Maria Tedeschi, who as confirmed by director Enzo G. Castellari, was Alessandro's sister, and who often appeared together with him.

In keeping with his peculiar appearance, Alessandro was frequently cast as oddball or sinister characters, and his specialty was to portray German characters, and particularly Nazis. He began to portray Nazis in the immediate post-war era and would go on to do so frequently throughout the rest of his career. His proclivity for playing Germans is quite ironic when one considers that his last name Tedeschi when translated into English means Germans!

Unlike his sister Maria, whose career lasted until the early 1990s, Alessandro seems to have vanished from Italian movie screens around 1979, having possibly died around that time. Unfortunately, no biographical details are available for him.

Alessandro Tedeschi plays the villain in the fotoromanzo Le avventure di Ray Kolman N. 31: "Champagne per chi uccide" (published 31 June 1972).
And he was credited too, but not as Alessandro Tedeschi - only as "Tedeschi".

Alessandro Tedeschi also appears in the fotoromanzo Le avventure di Jacques Douglas N. 27: "Operazione Virginia" (Published in December 1967) in which he has a nice credited villain role. It is also interesting to see that he's wearing an awful wig!
