While it was agreed that the actor in the 4 films above was all the same person, there are a number of other possible identifications from the Whitebeard project that people were less certain about, so I'll leave these here for now to be added or eliminated in the future when we know our man a little better (or when better quality images show up). For the record the 6 films here are
28. Maciste contro i mongoli (1963)
29. Maciste, l'eroe piu grande del mondo (1963)
41. L'ultimo gladiatore (1964)
45. La vendetta di Spartacus (1964)
51. Coca Cola commercial (1966)
123. Gli invincibili fratelli Maciste (1964)

Ben-Hur (1959) as Spectator at victorious return.

I'd say I'm 95% sure this is our man, I'm sure it will be easier to confirm once we know him a little better.
