Unidentified actors

As far as I can tell the only scene shot in Italy is the opening scene with Montalbano and Tamberlani - images 1-2. The rest of the film looks to have been shot in Spain, so the generici should be Spanish.

Uncredited actors listed by other sources, but not identified
Luis Barboo - EdCE. Does not appear, probably mis-identified in the role played by Brendel.
Kerima - IMDb. Does not appear.
Valeria Moriconi - ANICA / IMDb as Servant
Conrado Sanmartin - ANICA. Does not appear.

I wondered about that being Cortes, but the nose seemed too small… hmmm :thinking_face:

Do you recognise any of the other credited Spanish actors?

Attempting to get a handle on Vicente Bañó, who we also have unidentified in Ursus. I've got him identified in 8 roles, but don't really see any obvious matches here. My best guess would be the guy in blue in 57, 58 and 62, but I can't say I'm at all sure. Any opinions?

Seeing him in this image from Wavy's topic it's more obviously him, so I'll get him added

Having identified Rafael Calvo Revilla in 7 films I think I agree with IMDb that he is 45, but the wig, strange expression and whatever that thing is stuck to his chin are very distracting.
