Chiarenza's Cousin

Post by Johan Melle » 13/12/2020, 12:37

The unidentified "Chiarenza's Cousin" in Che gioia vivere (1961)

This big-bearded generico pops up in various films from the late 1950s and early 1960s at least, so I'm opening a topic for him in the hope of uncovering more roles and - hopefully - his name.

I've nicknamed his "Chiarenza's Cousin" because he's somewhat similar in style and appearance to fellow generico Calogero Chiarenza.

Il vedovo (1959) as Father Agostino. This is a fairly large speaking role which the IMDb attributes to being played by Eugenio Maggi, but this is incorrect.

Ursus nella terra di fuoco (1963) as Priest.

A bit unclear, but from the high forehead and pretty unique shape and colouring of the beard I'm pretty certain it must be him. He is only seen in this one brief shot before being slaughtered. If the movie eventually turns up in HD he will probably be seen more clearly.
