Pevarello, Osiride

Osiride Pevarello in Lo chiamavano Trinità... (1970)
pev4.jpg

Osiride Pevarello was a stuntman and actor active in Italian films from 1949 until at least 2002.

His biographical details, found on IMDb, Wikipedia and many spaghetti western websites, are that he was born on July 26th 1920 in Padua, Italy and died in Rome on December 15th 2016, aged 96. He was the brother of stuntman Renzo Pevarello. From the mid-60's onwards he kept a thick beard and longer hair, both dyed black, making him easily identifiable, however in earlier roles his look was more changeable and he could, on occasion, be confused for his brother.

From a 1966 short feature/interview entitled Osiride we learn some more biographical details. He came from a gypsy family with a father who was a farmer and magician and he had many brothers and sisters who were circus performers (one other source claims 19!). Osiride was himself married with 4 children, and at the time of the interview was living in a 2-room caravan close to the catacombs of Commodilla. He says he made his film debut in Il mullino del Po (1949) and also appeared in films for Fellini and Rosi (since he currently has no identified roles in films by these directors dating from before 1966 then these need looking into) and it also mentions him appearing in I grandi condottieri. In his time off he liked to fish in the Tiber.

In 1966 he appeared in the western Yankee, directed by Tinto Brass, with whom he formed a long-lasting friendship and would go on to play small roles in most of Brass' subsequent films until the early 2000s.

There will probably also be some roles to be found from the 50's, given his supposed 1949 debut.

  • Non stop (TV show, 1977) (credited) .... Fire eater in a circus number.

Più Pevarello!
Further titles where Osiride may appear.
  • Il mullino del Po (1949) from interview
  • La strada (1954) from interview, maybe the unidentified Fellini film he mentions in another interview
  • Helen of Troy (1956) from interview
  • Ben-Hur (1959) from interview
  • Circus World (1964) from interview - looked for but not found, Nick
  • The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964) from interview
  • I grandi condottieri (1965) from interview
  • Osiride (1966) short interview feature. I have seen this and can confirm that the items in the biography are correct, but I no longer have a copy to take images from.
  • Thor il conquistatore (1983) IMDb as Barbarian
  • Unknown Francesco Rosi film, pre-1966, from interview

No Osiride!
There always has to be one.
  • I coltelli del vendicatore (1966) IMDb as Hagen's henchman. It looks like it is actually Renzo as multiple henchman and no Osiride.
  • Pecos è qui: prega e muori! (1967) IMDb, searched for by Rudy but not found
  • Così sia (1972) IMDb as Townsman during fire, The actor who resembles Osiride in this scene is actually our Bearded Balding Man.
  • Fra' Tazio da Velletri (1973) IMDb as Farmer. He appears to have been mistaken for our Balding Bearded Man - again!
  • Sgarro alla camorra (1973) IMDb, searched for by Rudy, presumably mistaken for brother Renzo.
  • I due superpiedi quasi piatti (1977) IMDb as Circus man. Rudy says "not found, the only ones i found were hippies, one with a beard, but it wasn't him"
