Renato Montalbano in Il pianeta errante (1966)
vlcsnap-2020-02-08-19h12m29s163.jpg

Renato Montalbano is a C.S.C. actor who graduated from Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in 1956. He worked steadily in small roles through until the early 90’s and from the mid-70’s onwards worked pretty much exclusively in television.

He was born on May 17th 1931 in Catania, Italy. As far as is known he is still living at the time of writing. Before deciding to take up acting he had been studying medicine at university. (These unconfirmed biographical details are repeated by many sites across the internet).

Like fellow C.S.C. alumnus Renato Terra Caizzi, Montalbano’s early filmography is a big muddle, with him being credited in many films where he does not appear and uncredited in just as many where he does. Hopefully we can play our part in sorting it out. His distinctive "widows peak" hairline is an obvious aid to identification (at least until he went bald in the 70's!).

I have started his filmography only with roles found by myself, so there are plenty more to be added, particularly television roles from later in his career.

Montalbano is missing!
There always has to be one!
  • Il segreto di Budda / Heisser Hafen Hongkong (1962) Credited as R. Montalbano on an Italian poster for the film, but is not listed in the on-screen credits of neither the Italian nor the German version and does not appear in the film either.
  • La morte viene dal pianeta Aytin (1967) listed on IMDb as playing "Control room technician". Montalbano is nowhere to be seen, presumably confused with his appearances in other Margheriti space-operas.

Il diavolo nero (1957) credited but not found. My copy isn't great so there's a small chance I may have missed him, but I think it's probably credit only.

È arrivata la parigina (1958) credited but not found. This is almost certainly a credit only.

Il padrone delle ferriere (1959) credited but not found. Once again my copy wasn't great so there's a slight chance I may have missed him, but I think it's probably another credit only.
