Barbarian Torturer

Post by PeplumParadise » 04/05/2019, 12:26

The unknown actor known as "Barbarian Torturer" in Il colpo segreto di d'Artagnan (1962)

This distinctive-looking, bald man appears in numerous peplum movies from the 1950s and 60s, and much like his colleagues Veriano Ginesi and Amerigo Santarelli (whom he frequently appears with), he specialized in playing parts as torturer.

He could probably be identified as Stefano Ceccarelli, credited by IMDb for his role in Colpo doppio del Camaleonte D'Oro (nice find by Themefi), also concurred by a mention in a book of him having appeared in La strada. Ceccarelli's only other known role is in the 1947 film Daniele Cortis, so if a copy of this could be found then the identification could be confirmed. If indeed he is Ceccarelli there is also a possibility that he could be the father of Pietro and maybe also Lanfranco.

He has a lengthy wrestling scene with Amerigo Santarelli in this one, but never keeps still long enough to get a good facial shot

Finally some screen shots to confirm that he does indeed appear in the film including a nice gory death shot

Could this be real-life father and son?
