Artemio Antonini

Artemio Antonini in Operazione poker (1965).

Artemio Antonini was a tough-looking stuntman and actor active in Italian films from at least the mid-50's until the mid-80's.

Wikipedia gives the unconfirmed details that he was born on June 16th 1924 in Rome, Italy and that he died on December 5th 2001, also in Rome. No other biographical information is currently known.

Most online filmographies start his career in 1960, but I have uncovered a role from 1955 so I think it is highly likely there will be more 50's roles to be found. I have also found a number of other undocumented roles from later in his career so it is probable there will be more late roles to be found too.

I have started his topic only with roles found by myself, so there are plenty more to add, particularly from westerns and later in his career.

More Artemio!
There are more titles in which Artemio reportedly appears, so if anyone has shots of him in any of the titles below, you know what to do!
  • Chiedi perdono a Dio... non a me (1968) IMDb as Smart henchman
  • Quando gli uomini armarono la clava e... con le donne fecero din-don (1971) IMDb as Peasant
  • Se t'incontro t'ammazzo (1971) IMDb as Outlaw
  • Alleluja e Sartana figli di... Dio (1972) IMDb
  • Jesse & Lester - Due fratelli in un posto chiamato Trinità (1972) IMDb
  • La vergine di Bali (1972) IMDb as Thug in bar
  • ...E il terzo giorno arrivò il corvo (1973) IMDb as Gunman
  • Oremus, Alleluia e Così Sia (1973) IMDb as Chaco henchman
  • Sentivano uno strano, eccitante, pericoloso puzzo di dollari (1973) IMDb as Lumberjack
  • Roma violenta (1975) IMDb

No Antonini!
Titles where Artemio is credited with appearing somewhere online, but either does not appear or else I was unable to find him for some reason.
  • Piedone lo sbirro (1973) IMDb. Most of the usual stuntmen are present, but I couldn't find any sign of Artemio.
  • La polizia accusa: il servizio segreto uccide (1975) IMDb as Prisoner. He does not appear as a prisoner. There is a driver at the start of the film who has a similar look, but opinion was that it is not him.
  • Una colt in mano al diavolo (1973) IMDb as as Jeremy, blacksmith. Carlos tells me that Artemio does not appear here, but does appear in the similarly-titled Una colt, in pugno al diavolo.

Most websites begin his career in 1960, but I came across this role from 5 years earlier in Siamo uomini o caporali (1955) as a Hospital intern.

On the strength of this I would say it is extremely likely that there will be further roles to be found from the late 50's and maybe even earlier, since he appears to be already quite mature here.

Thanks to cinemaitaliano for providing the HD images and confirming the I.D.
