The Elegant Prophet

"The Elegant Prophet" in Ponzio Pilato (1962)

"The Elegant Prophet" is an unidentified generico active at least throughout the 60's and into the early 70's. He is balding, with a waxed moustache and bushy white beard, plus distinguishing moles on both cheeks.

It was jointly decided that he looked both elegant and prophet-like, hence his nickname.

We now have a possible name for our man, though unfortunately no way to confirm it. By process of deduction from the credits in Capricci (1969), where he has a role that should be credited, it looks like our man could be called Umberto Berluti.

Tre nel Mille (1971) as Monk. This was originally released as a theatrical feature in 1971, and then shown as a greatly expanded six-part mini series for television in 1973 under the new title Storie dell'anno Mille. Our man appears in a couple of scenes in the fifth episode. I don't know how much (if any) of his role is present in the theatrical cut, which I've not been able to find.
