Masselli, Emilio

Emilio Masselli in I fratelli corsi (1961)
vlcsnap-2020-10-10-17h22m52s814a.jpg

Active as a generico in Italian films from at least the early 1950's until the mid 1960's, Emilio Masselli bears a certain resemblance to the well-known actor Fausto Tozzi, and looks to have maintained the same look of characteristic black moustache and (probably dyed) black hair throughout his career.

Prior to being identified, he was nicknamed the "Last Jewish Councillor", on account of being the only actor playing a Jewish council member in L'oro di Roma that we were originally unable to identify.

Juke box - Urli d'amore (1959) as Double bass player.

This is a rather unusual role for a regular actor to be playing, so maybe it could be that he was also a musician?
