Ezio Rossi

Ezio Rossi in Vita di Cavour (1967)

Ezio Rossi is a little known actor who worked in Italian film and television for more than 40 years, but about whom absolutely nothing is known.

ANICA lists seven film appearances for him, with the earliest one being Campo di maggio (1935). The other films are all from 1952-55, plus one from 1961. He apparently worked as a generico, appearing in mostly uncredited roles during the 1930s and 40s.

From the mid 1950s and onward, he worked almost exclusively in television, playing credited roles in an impressive amount of TV movies and series up until the mid 1970s. Yet despite being credited, his roles never amounted to much more than that of a generico - nearly always lasting just a few seconds and limited to a single scene. He would often be listed at the end of the cast lists with the additional actors whose roles are unspecified.

Ezio is sometimes difficult to recognize due to the wigs, fake beards and costumes he was outfitted with, but he can be recognized (provided that the print is sufficiently sharp) by a characterisitic wart on his right cheek.

So far I've only found credited roles for Ezio, but there's surely a lot of uncredited work from the 1940s etc to be uncovered.

La voce del silenzio (1953) credited, as Priest. ANICA incorrectly lists him as playing the role of Gino.

Questa sera si recita a soggetto (1957) (TV movie) credited, as Club patron. I've not been able to positively determine exactly when this was broadcast, as I can't find any trace of it in the Radiocorriere TV archives. IMDb lists it as 1956, but the year of production appears to actually be 1957.

I could only find a poor-looking version with the credits cut off, but Ezio is credited in the cast list printed in Radiocorriere TV

Più rosa che giallo (1962) (TV series) - episode 5: "La signora della collana", credited, as Gregory Overside. This series appears to be lost, but there's a picture of Ezio from this episode in Radiocorriere TV. From the plot description, he is playing a famous crime novel writer and appears to have a larger than usual role.

Una tragedia americana (1962) (TV mini-series). Ezio is credited in episodes 5 and 6 among the additional actors, with no role specified. IMDb credits him with playing one of the jurors, but that's incorrect. I wasn't able to spot him, but he could be present among the crowd of spectators at the trial but without being visible on camera.
