Mimmo Poli

Mimmo Poli in Romolo e Remo (1961)

Romolo E Remo - Mimmo Poli.jpg

Domenico “Mimmo” Poli was born on April 11th 1922 in Rome, Italy. He died on April 4th 1986 in Rome, aged 64, from a heart attack.

One of the great comedic character actors of Italian cinema, Mimmo’s career stretched from the start of the 50’s until his death in the mid-80’s. In an alternate reality he really should have become a much bigger star, but, one must assume, due to a combination of bad luck and bad management, he never rose above bit parts and small supporting roles that were, much more often than not, uncredited, even when his roles were bigger and showier than many of the credited actors.

His early career was notable for it’s diversity - he would turn up in everything from serious dramas or historical swashbucklers and peplums to outrageous comedies, frequently appearing in the films of comics Toto and, later, Franco & Ciccio. His career took a bit of a downward turn in the late 60’s where he was most often to be found typecast playing bartenders in spaghetti westerns, there only for the purpose of giving good reaction shots to the fights going on around him. As the 70’s came along he found himself most often cast as priests or restaurant owners, with a few surprises along the way which even included a spot of hardcore pornography, and not forgetting his regular appearances in the films of Fellini. In addition to his film roles he also appeared regularly in fotoromanzi during the 60's.

Mimmo’s earliest known film roles date from 1951, but since he was already aged 29 and an established stage actor at this time I suspect there may be some earlier film titles to be discovered. I have found a number of previously undocumented appearances by Mimmo in peplum and historical productions, so I am sure there are still more roles of his to be discovered, particularly from around 1954-55 and 1973-75 when his filmography is uncharacteristically sparse. I wouldn’t be surprised if, when all is said and done, Mimmo’s filmography will come in at around some 300 titles.

MORE MIMMO!
Even with the 220 odd credits here already there are at least another 20 or so titles in which Mimmo reportedly appears, so if anyone has shots of him in any of the titles below, you know what to do! Equally, if you know he definitely does not appear in any of these films then please let me know and I will move the title to the other list below - and of course if you know of or can find any additional titles not on this list that would be even better!

Licenza premio (1951)
La barriera della legge (1954)
Una pelliccia di visone (1956) as Driver
La chiamavan capinera (1957)
La zia d’america va a sciare (1957)
Perfide… ma belle (1958) Google translates the role listed on Cinema Italiano DB as “Thick starvation”!!
La duchessa di santa lucia (1959)
Simpatico mascalzone (1959) as Spectator in the theatre
A qualcuna piace calvo (1959) as Man at the window
iI raccomendato di ferro (1959) as Lawyer on the telephone
iI principe fusto (1960) as Mimmo - maybe credited
Indios a nord-ovest (1964)
Vacanze sulla neve (1966)
Gli altri, gli altri e noi (1966) - not to be confused with Io, Io, Io e gli altri, released the same year, in which Mimmo also appears
Cinque figli di cane (1969) as “Fat customer in the appointment house”
La donne a una dimensione (1969) as Man on TV
Soliti ignoti vent’anni dopo (1985) as Cesare


MIMMO IS MISSING!
Mimmo seems to have a surprisingly high number of mis-credits around the internet, and even in the credits of films themselves, for films in which he does not seem to appear. A few of these could maybe be accounted for by my having only seen versions where his appearance had been cut, some are clearly misidentifications and it is possible I could have missed him in one or two, but then again some of them are just total mysteries. If anyone else wants to search for him in these films in the hope of finding him where I may have missed him I wish you good luck.

Ulisse (1954) Does not appear. Pretty much every filmography I’ve found of Mimmo, including ANICA, includes this title, where he reportedly plays a character called Procio. I have been through this film previously gathering images and identifying actors without finding him (or anyone who resembles him) or any character named Procio and I have been through it three times now on blu-ray specifically looking for Mimmo, still with no luck, so this credit is a big Mimmo mystery.

La notte brava (1959) Probably does not appear. Credited on many sites, including ANICA, with no role given. According to Cinema Italiano DB, Mimmo is the final actor listed in the closing credits of this film, however the Italian copy I watched just ended with “Fine” and then faded out - as was normal in Italian films at that time. There is a fat pimp at the start of the film but he does not look like Mimmo to me, otherwise there is no-one similar.

Il carabiniere a cavallo (1961) Does not appear. IMDb lists him as an uncredited actor in this film but without giving any character name/description and he's nowhere to be found in the film. But there is a tiny role for Gianni Baghino, who even though he doesn't resemble Mimmo, sometimes appeared together with him and often played the same kinds of roles, so possibly someone has confused the two.

Il federale (1961) Probably does not appear. Listed on various websites, including ANICA, with no role given, I couldn’t find him - someone may have confused him with a different unidentified fat actor seen on a bus or a fat trainee soldier who is not seen clearly enough to identify.

La donna degli altri è sempre più bella (1963) Probably does not appear. Mimmo is listed on ANICA and other sites as appearing in this episodic film, with no role given. I have been through it but couldn’t find him. He may have been confused with another unidentified fat actor who appears (who looks similar to the actor who he may have been mistaken for in Il Federale). Rudy also could not see Mimmo in this film.

Vino, whisky e acqua salata (1963) Does not appear. The credits list a “Max Poli” which someone has listed on IMDb as being Mimmo, but he most definitely does not appear in this one, so “Max Poli” is presumably a different actor altogether.

Trappola per sette spie (1966) Does not appear. Just as with Vino, whisky e acqua salata, a certain “Max Poly” is listed in the credits, but in spite of what the IMDb says, this is not an alias for Mimmo.

The Honey Pot / Masquerade (1967) Does not appear. IMDb lists Mimmo as playing a cook, but there is no such role in the film. IMDb also says that a number of actors, including Antonio Corevi and Frank Latimore, filmed scenes that were deleted from the film. There were apparently 18 minutes cut between the film’s initial opening and wide release, and it’s the shorter version which is available on DVD and blu-ray. Maybe Mimmo’s scene was also cut? Who knows!

Poppea... una prostituta al servizio dell’impero (1972) Does not appear. Listed on IMDb and other places, my guess is that someone at some point confused this film with one or other of the similarly titled and themed Le calde notti di Poppea or Livia, una vergine per l’impero, in both of which Mimmo does appear.

Storia di fifa e di coltello - Er seguito der più (1972) Probably does not appear. Listed on ANICA with no role. I couldn’t see him. Maybe someone has confused this film with Un dollaro di fifa (1960) in which Mimmo does appear.

Piedone lo sbirro (1973) Probably does not appear. Listed on IMDb with no role. Maybe mistaken for one of several similar looking actors in the film. I couldn’t find him.

Zanna Bianca (1973) Does not appear. Mimmo is credited on ANICA as being in this film, but it is actually Maurice Poli who is credited in the film and playing the role they ascribe to Mimmo.

Libidomania (1979) Does not appear. Mimmo is mis-credited on IMDb and elsewhere as playing the role actually played by Veriano Ginesi.

La patata bollente (1979) Probably does not appear. Mimmo is listed on Cinema Italiano DB as playing a “Worker”. Since the film is set in a factory there are a lot of actors who could be credited as workers, but as far as I can see Mimmo is not one of them. There is an actor sitting in the far background in a scene in the factory restaurant who resembles Mimmo's shape, but I think it would be impossible to see him clearly enough to make a positive I.D.

Squadra antigangsters (1979) Probably does not appear. According to IMDb Mimmo plays an arab in the pre-credit sequence. What pre-credit sequence? The copy I watched didn’t have one and neither did it have Mimmo, which means it was either cut or never existed.

A tu per tu (1984) Probably does not appear. Mimmo’s name appears in the end credits, but I've looked several times and I couldn’t see him anywhere in the film. Just one more Mimmo mystery!

Toto supposedly "discovered" Mimmo for this film, though, if true, he hardly put his new discovery to good use. Mimmo was reportedly already an established actor in the theatre at this point.

Note: In his credits around the internet Mimmo's character descriptions frequently include the word "Fat", such as here he would be called "The fat nurse / L'infermiere grasso". I don't really see the necessity to include that description in a film like this, since his size goes without saying and is only really worth noting if it is important to his role, which here it is not.
