The Last Man on Earth (1964)

Post by PeplumParadise » 27/03/2024, 14:14

title.jpg

Italian title: L'ultimo uomo della Terra

Director

Sidney Salkow (English credits)

Ubaldo Ragona (as "Ubaldo B. Ragona" - Italian credits)

It seems Salkow was entirely responsible for directing the film, while Ragona's name was only included on the Italian credits for quota reasons.

Storyline

A virus has turned most of the world's population into living-dead vampires. Doctor Robert Morgan must battle against both the vampires and the "New People" if he wants to survive.

Unidentified actors

Uncredited actors listed by other sources, but not identified
  • Rolando De Rossi - IMDb as TV reporter. The only TV reporter seen is the one played by Ettore Ribotta. There is a guy sitting behind him, but he isn't really seen clearly enough to identify.
  • Giuseppe Mattei - IMDb as New People leader. Since Pino Mattei is nowhere to be seen then I assume this must refer to the other Giuseppe Mattei. The "new people" don't have anyone who appears to be their leader, but he may be among the men chasing Morgan.
  • Enrico Salvatore - IMDb as TV reporter. The only TV reporter seen is the one played by Ettore Ribotta. There is a guy sitting behind him, but he isn't really seen clearly enough to identify.

In n.6 we have on the right a young Arnaldo Caivano, and on the very right Ruggero Rosi and again by profile in pic 12 (that nose is impossible to be mistaken !)

In pic 13 again Caivano

Only by profile but for me the man in pic 21 is Ugo Ballester

The older woman in pic 26 is Regina Bisio and on the right i think Howard Nelson Rubien

On the right in pics 6 and 12 is surely Ruggero Rosi.

The man draped in shadows in pic 13 looks to be Arnaldo Caivano.

The older woman in pic 26 should be Regina Elena Bisio.

In pic 28-29 (and again in 34) is Jacques Stany.

As you mentioned in Quick IDS, 45 does indeed look like the same as this man: viewtopic.php?f=75&t=4132&p=74187&hilit ... yed#p74185

And now I see Mauro and I were writing most of the same things at the same time :laughing: I don't recognize Rubien in pic 26, though.

Thank you, all added except Rubien, who never appeared without his goatee, so I'm sure he wouldn't have shaved it for a role like this.

From a film with a fairly minimal cast for which we only previously had 2 uncrediteds identified, we now have 10, which is a pretty good result I'd say :)

I need to get a topic done for the guy in 45 if I can think of a name for him as I now have 10 or 11 ID's for him and I'll get a db topic up for Stany as we have him in 6 film topics

That possible ID was previously brought up here, but Emiliano didn't think it was him and it doesn't seem much like him to me. What do others think?
