Unidentified actors

It would appear that most of the film was shot in Spain, apart from some desert scenes that look like they were probably filmed in Morocco or Egypt, so presumably most of the unidentified actors should be Spanish.

Uncredited actors listed by other sources
Lorella De Luca - IMDb. I couldn't find her anywhere.
Jean-Luc Godard - IMDb as Handwalker (??!!)
Rico Lopez - IMDb as Horseman

Logic would say that unidentified credited actress Maria Calvi should be the actress in 15, 23 and 28, however as we well know logic often takes a walk when it comes to film credits. This is her only known credit, so we have no way to confirm the ID.

This seems like it could be Agustin Bescos in 24, however in all the other images it looks like there is a different actor in his position, so I don't know

It's 1963 but here he looks like he does in the 70's. I don't think it's him. But I'm not a Bescos expert.

8 months and 100 new identifications later I have taken the executive decision and added Bescos. I've also spotted and added "Mr. Grumpy", who wasn't known 8 months ago, thereby doubling the identified uncredited actors.
