La rappresentazione della terribile caccia alla balena bianca Moby Dick (1973) (TV mini series). Nat is credited (together with several other noted black actors like Dakar and Lex Monson) but with no role specified in the cast list printed in Radiocorriere TV. I've not been able to find this obscure five-part series, but it looks like it was recently shown on Rai5, so copies ought to be around somewhere...

In the mid 1970s, Nat was a singer in the group New Folkstudio Singers, a new incarnation of the 1960s group The Folkstudio Singers. Brothers Eddie and Jessie Hawkins were the only members from the original group, whereas the new members consisted of Nat as well as Hazel Rogers (who, like Nat, had been part of The Archie Savage Dancers), Lois Levin Cantor, Roberto Gardin and Paul Goldfield. They released an LP in 1974 and Nat can be spotted on the cover (he's number two from the left).

Nat and the rest of the New Folkstudio Singers also appeared in New Folkstudio Singers 76, which appears to be some kind of television concert. It must have aired on some Italian TV channel (in 1976, I presume), but I've not been able to find any details.

Based on this tiny ad from the L'Unità newspaper on 25 March 1973, it looks as though Nat actually became a member of the Folkstudio Singers while his mentor Archie Savage was still part of the group

Papaya dei Caraibi (1978) as Man at the macumba ritual. Nat gets to use some of his old dancing skills in this sleazy ritual scene that was shot in a studio in Rome, whereas the rest of the film was mostly shot on location is the Dominican Republic.

Contamination (1980) as Warehouse guard. Nat meets a spectacularly gruesome demise in this gory horror/sci-fi classic when he is killed by a chest-burster effect ripped off from Alien (1979).

Paura nella città dei morti viventi (1980) as Sergeant Clay. In this famous Italian horror classic, Nat makes his first of three appearances for director Lucio Fulci, playing a small but notable role as a smug cop who refuses to believe in anything supernatural.
