Fruit Man

Post by PeplumParadise » 24/05/2019, 13:37

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 mid-50's through to the mid-80'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
