"Mr. Cheeky" in La collina degli stivali (1969)

Another graduate from our Whitebeard project, Mr. Cheeky was a generico active in Italian films at least throughout the 60's and into the early 70's. He appeared regularly as "townsmen" in westerns from the mid-60's onwards.

When seen from certain angles his left cheekbone is particularly prominent (hence his nickname), which looks like it my have been the result of some injury (it doesn't seem so obvious in earlier roles, so maybe it was something that happened in the mid-60's?). Other distinguishing features include a couple of moles on his left cheek, distinctive squinty eyes, balding head and a neatly trimmed white beard, often with a darker streak coloured down the centre of his chin.

Little Rita nel West (1967) as Spectator in court, second from left in the top images

Johan had some doubts about this one, but I think it is more obviously him in the lower images.
