Aristide Catoni

Aristide Catoni in L'imperatore di Capri (1949)
L'Imperatore Di Capri - Aristide Catoni1.jpg

Aristide Catoni is a generico who shows up everywhere in 1950s and early 1960s movies. His big, funny glasses make him instantly recognizable and he was used for funny little parts on several occasions, including numerous comedies with Totò.

A big thank you to Ciavazzaro for identifying Aristide.

Small but memorable and credited role for Aristide in Luigi Zampa's È più facile che un cammello... (1950) as a truck driver who accidentally kills Jean Gabin when he hits him with his truck
E Piu Facile - Aristide Catoni1.jpg
E Piu Facile - Aristide Catoni2.jpg

This action sets in swing the whole plot of the movie, because Gabin is denied entry into heaven and is given a chance to return to life for half a day to redeem himself, and Aristide appears in a few more moments and is given a bit of dialogue
