Peri, Arrigo

Post by PeplumParadise » 29/07/2020, 12:39

Arrigo Peri in Coriolano eroe senza patria (1964).
peri.jpg

Arrigo Peri was a jovial short, round, balding actor, with glasses when period-appropriate, active in Italian films from the late 40's until around the mid-70's. He was more active in various fields of production than he was an actor.

No biographical details are currently known.

Avanzi di galera (1954) credited, as Man who calls the doctor urgently.

IMDb says he should be credited as production secretary on this one, but he is only credited as an actor (which is, of course, missing from IMDb).

Valeria ragazza poco seria (1958) as what appears to be the Stage manager on a film set.

IMDb says he should be credited as Production secretary. I only managed to find a short clip without the credits, but in which he does appear as an actor.

Arrangiatevi (1959) credited. IMDb says his character is called Signore Mordini, though I didn't hear him referred to by name.
