Luigi Smith was a generico who was active in the 1950s, easily recognizable due to his characteristic white beard. He also appeared in some fotoromanzi, but was credited only in a single one: "La tragedia di Kastener", published in the weekly magazine Duemila during 1951.

And uncredited in two other fotoromanzi from the early 1950s:

As the kidnapped scientist Professor Smith in "Gli uomini di acciaio", published in Duemila from June to December 1950

And in the more romantically-themed "Camelia tra le fiamme", published in Sogno from August to December 1951, where he plays the fittingly named character Barba (beard)

Ben-Hur (1959) as Man watching parade. 5 years after his previous latest role, so he was working until at least the end of the 50's.
