Mario Pennisi

Mario Pennisi in E per tetto un cielo di stelle (1968)

Mario Pennisi was a generico and bit-part actor active in Italian films at least throughout the 60's.

Easily recognisable, short with a bald head, dyed red hair and prominent red moustache, bearing a bit of a similarity to Nino Musco, his roles tended to be those of a prominent extra.

In his earliest role so far he is clean-shaven, looking a little different, so it's possible there could be more early roles to be found without the moustache. I have found a few undocumented appearances, so I'm sure there will be more to come.

More Mario!
There are more titles where Mario is rumoured to appear that I have been unable to find copies of, so if anybody has any of the titles below you know what to do...
  • Michelino Cucchiarella (1964) ANICA
  • Spiaggia libera (1965) ANICA
  • Addio mamma! (1967) ANICA
  • Il novelliere : ritratto di Giovanni Verga (1967) TV movie, IMDb

No Pennisi!
As always seems to be the case there are a few titles where he is credited somewhere online, but either he does not appear or else I was unable to find him for some reason.
  • Uccellacci e Uccellini (1966) IMDb. Searched for several times and also by Rudy, but not found.

Il vigile (1960) as Friend of Otello.

This is currently Mario's earliest known role and the only one we have so far without his trademark moustache, which makes him look quite different. It might be worth remembering his look here in case there are other early clean-shaven roles to be found.
