Luciano Foti was a very prolific generico in the 1960s, 70s and 80s - often cast as priests, policemen or doctors. He was quite often entrusted with speaking roles, but was nevertheless credited only in a few television productions in which he played small roles, and in Year of the Gun (1991), an American production filmed in Italy.

Additionally, Luciano also sometimes worked behind the scenes and is credited as 'production secretary' in the Totò comedy Lo smemorato di Collegno (1962) and in Toh, è morta la nonna! (1969), and as 'production coordinator' in the giallo Macchie solari (1975), and he also has very brief acting roles in these films.

Another interesting discovery: Luciano Foti (with Giuseppe Marrocco) in Killing N. 21: "Dollari e piombo" (published 15 July 1967)

Killing N. 21  Dollari e piombo  (published 15 July 1967).jpg

Erna Sheurer was one of the queens of fotoromanzi neri. She was in many, many numbers of "Killing" and "Le avventure di Don Archer". It's too bad that all the actors in "Killing" are uncredited because so many interesting actresses appeared in them: Erna of course but also Rosemarie Lindt, Annie Alberti, Lea Lander, Gabriella Giorgelli, Mary Arden, Beryl Cunningham, and actors like Dario Michaelis, Nino Vingelli, Paul Muller, Renato Baldini, George Hilton, Erno Crisa, Gérard Landry, Mimmo Poli, Alberto Farnese, Rico Boido etc. And many of the same actors (plus Gioia Desideri, Katia Cardinali etc) are in Don Archer too. Very impressive, I think!


Foti has also a small role in "I fratelli Zaccheo" - long fotoromanzo-a-puntate published in Grand Hotel in 1984
