Fruit Man

The unidentified "Fruit Man" in L'assedio di Siracusa (1960)

L'assedio Di Siracusa - Fruit Man.jpg

The unidentified "Fruit Man" appeared in small uncredited roles in films from at least the late 50's through the 60's. I nick-named him "Fruit Man" since he appears carrying trays of fruit in 2 of the first films where I identified him.

Ercole contro Moloch (1963) re-uses the footage of our man from Le Baccanti as Slave carrying water, thereby giving him an extra credit
