Son of Moses

The unidentified actor known as "Son of Moses" in Ursus il terrore dei Kirghisi (1964)
Snapshot-2020-02-06 at 11_52_21 AM-216859665.jpg

Long-white-haired, big-white and dark bearded actor with a pretty unique look who showed up in a number of peplum films in the late 50's to the mid-sixties. He should be easy to recognise (unless he cut his hair at some point!), so I look forward to seeing his filmography grow.

I named him "Son of Moses" since the only real point of reference for his look is Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments - and because it sounds more memorable than "Big-haired, big-bearded man".

One possibility for an identification could be the name Antonio Omiccioli, credited in Un mostro... e mezzo (1964), where our man has a notable speaking role. Unfortunately this appears to be the only known credit for Omiccioli, so unless another should appear we have no way to verify this.
