Annuale, Armando

Armando Annuale 1956.jpg
Armando Annuale, in Cineguida 1956
Armando Annuale was born on June 5th 1884 in Naples, Italy, and he left on March 20th 1962 in Rome, aged 77.

He has a solitary credit on IMDb from 1919, quite possible since he was already aged 35 at the time. There is then a 19 year gap before his next listed role in 1938 - maybe he was working as an extra through those years and is our first silent generico? He then worked steadily up until his death in 1962, mostly in small uncredited roles. He regularly appeared in the films of Totò throughout the 50's and his Tototruffa profile tells us that he was also a theatre actor.

Chances are he has many more credits to be added, though if he was active through the 20's and 30's it will be luck of the draw as to whether we can find him with so many films from those years being lost.

More Armando!
There are still plenty of films to be found where Armando is credited somewhere online, including all his pre-1949 titles. If you have any of these films you know what to do.
  • La leggenda dei tre fiori (1919)
  • Pietro Micca (1938) as Don Sebastiano Valfré
  • Il carnevale di Venezia (1939) as Il vecchietto curioso
  • Cavalcata d'eroi (1950)
  • Angelo tra la folla (1950)
  • Il mago per forza (1951)
  • Bellezze in motoscooter (1952)
  • Quo vadis? (1952) - Cineguida 1956
  • Buon viaggio, pover'uomo! (1953)
  • Vacanze romane (1953) - Cineguida 1956
  • La contessa scalza (1954) - Cineguida 1956
  • Bella non piangere (1954) as Primary school teacher - Cineguida 1956
  • Non scherzare con le donne (1955) as Uncle Peppino
  • I miliardari (1956) as Man on the boat
  • Mamma sconosciuta (1956) as Theatre doorman
  • Le cameriere (1959)
  • Psicanalista per signora (1959)
  • Le pillole di Ercole (1960) as Wedding guest
Armando is missing!
As always seems to be the case there are also a few titles where Armando is credited somewhere online, but in which I was unable to find him for some reason. If anyone wants to search for him in these titles I wish you good luck.
  • Un americano in vacanza (1946)
  • 47 morto che parla (1950)
  • Nerone e Messalina (1953) - Searched for but not found. I suppose it could be possible someone mixed him up with Eugenio Galadini.
  • La venere di Cheronea (1957) - There is an old man of similar type, but it isn't Armando.
  • Il Generale Della Rovere (1959)
  • David e Golia (1960)
  • A porte chiuse (1961)
