Piero Pastore

Piero Pastore in Io, suo padre (1939)
vlcsnap-2020-02-02-11h58m40s727.jpg

Pietro Mario Pastore, known as Piero, was born in Padua, Italy on April 3rd 1903 (some sources claim 1908, but ’03 is the year on his grave). From a young age he was a professional football player, rising to the top of his profession, playing for internationally reknowned teams such as AC Milan and Juventus as well as the Italian national team - indeed it seems he is widely regarded as being the first “star” football player. In 1929 he began acting in films, and from 1932 this became his full time career, one in which he continued until his death. He began his acting career auspiciously with several high profile leading roles, however by the mid-30’s he was already playing smaller parts, and in the 50’s and 60’s he was kept very busy appearing in mostly uncredited bit parts. He died at the age of 64, on January 8th 1968, in Rome.

Given that he was a national sporting hero, with much accompanying publicity, then I think his biographical details, found from many sources, can be relied upon.

I have found numerous previously undocumented appearances by Piero in peplum and historical films, so there must almost certainly be additional roles to be found.

    There are 2 additional titles I am aware of where Piero may appear which I am unable to add for reasons of information copyright

No Pastore!
As always seems to be the case with little-known actors with large online filmographies, there are a few titles where he is credited somewhere online, but either he does not appear or else I was unable to find him for some reason.
  • L'assedio dell'Alcazar (1940) Listed by ANICA with no role given.
  • When in Rome (1953) Listed by IMDb as Customs man
  • Barabba (1961) Listed by ANICA as Nicodemus.
  • La morte viene dal pianeta Aytin (1967) Listed by ANICA with no role given.

Piero began his film career at the start of the sound era, in Ragazze non scherzate (1929), role uncertain. I have been unable to find a copy of the film, but he is credited, as Pietro Pastore, with images, in this piece of publicity found on IMDb, which I assume is from a contemporary programme for the film.
