White Peplum Beard

Post by Johan Melle » 30/09/2018, 23:48

"White Peplum Beard" in Odissea (1968)
Odissea - White Peplum Beard.jpg

This distinct-looking bald, white-bearded man was an active generico in the 1960s and especially in peplum films and in RAI sceneggiati, where he usually played jurors or parliament members.

He plays an important role in the film Il terrore dei Mantelli Rossi (1963) and he could be credited. His name, by subtraction, could be Sergio Prestano.

Should probably be him in Little Rita nel west (1967) as a townsman

Previously an uncertain identification, I think this close-up behind Terence Hill confirms that it's our man - Nick

Vita di Cavour (1967) (TV mini series) as Parliament member

He's also present in a later parliament scene, but now he's standing and dressed differently. I assume it's a different role but not sure what he's supposed to be here...

So I finally joined the forum, still not sure how it all works but I'll give it a go.

His earliest known appearance that I'm aware of was in Ursus nella valle dei leoni (1961) as Prisoner tied to elephants
