Gino Scotti in Il terrore dei barbari (1959)

Gino Scotti was active in films from 1940 (and probably earlier) until the start of the 60's, and also has production assistant credits for a number of films in the 50's. He kick started his career with 2 scene-stealing uncredited appearances in 1940, but then seems to have disappeared until 1948 (could be war related?), after which he seems to have worked steadily in small character roles until he disappeared around 1961. May possibly be confused with similar-looking Felice Minotti.

This is the first of 2 films from 1940 for Scotti, which are the earliest credits I have seen. Both roles are uncredited, but quite substantial and showy parts. Maybe we can discover some even earlier roles?

Il leone di Amalfi (1950) as Priest. I am uncertain about this one, I think it is Gino as the second priest from the left, but I only have a poor copy of the film and it is not clear enough to be certain.

Giovanni dalle Bande Nere (1956) as Official of Lanzichenecchi. Uncredited in the English and German versions, but may be credited in Italian.
