Mario Ghignone was an actor/stuntman with a chunky build who was active in Italian films from at least the late 50's until 1970, appearing in peplums, eurospies and westerns. Identifying features are a fairly flat face with prominent jaw, greased back hair and a mole on his right cheek.

La battaglia di Maratona (1959) as Wrestler who attacks Phillipides (he could equally be called Teocrito's henchman). He has quite a large role here, where he gets a lengthy brawl with Steve Reeves. Under normal circumstances you would have expected him to be credited, but sadly even the Italian credits for this one are rather minimal and all credited actors are known.

Le avventure di Laura Storm (TV series) - season 2, episode 3: "I due volti della verità" (1966) credited, as Kuntz. He has a brief but credited here as one of the two henchmen of a German baron played by Paul Muller, and it's apparently one of only two instances where he was credited.

Una spada per l'impero (1964) as Personal servant to Emperor Commodus. He's in every scene where Commodus appears, but never gets called by name. Here we have his only other credited role.
