Febo Kelleng, Edward

Post by Johan Melle » 11/10/2020, 1:13

Edward Febo Kelleng in Londra chiama Polo Nord (1956)

Presumably an Englishman, or possibly an American, living in Italy and appearing in various films during the 1950s and 60s. He does not appear to have had any credited roles, but his identity is known thanks to him appearing in two very famous films, Jean Renoir's La carrozza d'oro (1952) and Mario Bava's Diabolik (1968), with his name appearing in a variety of written documents about those films. So far, I've come across four different variants of his last name (Febo Kelleng, Febokelleng, Fedo Keeling and Fredo Keeling) so it's hard to say which is the correct one...

Filmography
1952
  1. La carrozza d'oro .... The viscount (uncredited)

    1953
  2. Le infedeli .... Friend of the Rodgers family (uncredited)

  3. Mambo .... Dinner guest (uncredited)
  4. Pietà per chi cade .... Friend of the Savelli family (uncredited)

    1956
  5. Londra chiama Polo Nord .... Military judge (uncredited)

    1961
  6. Una vita difficile .... Dinner guest (uncredited)

    1968
  7. Diabolik .... Sir Harold Clark (uncredited)

    1970
  8. Waterloo .... Member of French royalty (uncredited)

La carrozza d'oro (1952) as The viscount

Despite playing a reasonably large role and appearing in several scenes, he is uncredited. He is, however, credited as Fedo Keeling in the book "Jean Renoir, a Guide to References and Resources" (1979) and in the booklet which accompanies the French blu-ray. On ANICA, however, he is listed as Fredo Keeling.

Again uncredited, but listed as Edward Febo Kelleng in a variety of written sources, and listed as Edward Febokelleng on ANICA.

Waterloo (1970)

I think it's safe to say he's playing a Member of French royalty, since he's seated with Louis XVIII (Orson Welles) and King Charles X (Aldo Cecconi), but beyond that there are no other clues. He appears to be sleeping throughout the scene!

Pietà per chi cade (1954) as Friend of the Savelli family

He appears in various scenes throughout the movie - usually right next to Zulina Badaloni, so he is presumably meant to be the husband of her character, but this is never made clear.
