Ennio Antonelli

Post by PeplumParadise » 26/01/2021, 16:59

Ennio Antonelli in Il cinico, l'infame, il violento (1977).
screenshot28.jpg

Ennio Antonelli was a stocky character actor active in Italian films from at least the start of the 1960's until the early 1990's. While he most often played small character roles he could equally be found on many occasions in the roles of generico or stuntman.

Ennio was born on February 23rd 1927 in Rome and died on August 6th 2004, aged 77. These details are confirmed from an image of Ennio's grave.

He was a professional boxer before starting his film career, with 29 fights between 1949-1956.

His earliest known roles at present come from 1960. He then worked steadily throughout the 60's and 70's across all genres. Through the first half of the 80's his career belatedly took off when he became ubiquitous as a straight man in small roles in the comedies of actors like Lino Banfi, Paolo Villaggio, Alvaro Vitali and Tomas Milian.

It is known that he suffered a stroke in 1989, causing him to be replaced in the final season of the series I ragazzi della 3 C , after which he only made a couple more appearances on screen before retiring due to health problems.

I have started his topic with roles found by myself or listed on IMDb and ANICA, so there are still quite a few to be added. I have found a number of undocumented early roles for Ennio, so I am sure there will be more to be uncovered.

Additional credits
  • Fellini - Block notes di un regista (1969) Quasi-documentary, as himself
  • Stracult interview (2001) There is a brief interview clip on You Tube, but with no clues as to the programme it originates from
Not enough of Antonelli!
There are still a few movies where Ennio is credited by various online sources that I have been unable to find, so if anybody has images of him in the films below you know what to do.
  • Due marines e un generale (1965) ANICA / IMDb as Von Kassler's driver
  • Basta guardarla (1970) Euro-Bis
  • Rag. Arturo De Fanti bancario-precario (1980) IMDb
  • Una vacanza bestiale (1980) ANICA as Truck driver
  • Zucchero, miele e peperoncino (1980) ANICA as Siculo
  • Manolesta (1981) ANICA
  • Scusa se è poco (1982) ANICA
  • Dance Music (1984) ANICA
  • Animali metropolitani (1987) Euro-Bis
  • Le comiche (1990) ANICA
  • Ennio Antonelli? Campa (2001) A documentary homage to Ennio directed by Marco Giusti
No Ennio!
Films where Ennio is credited as appearing somewhere online, but cannot be found for whatever reason. There always has to be one!
  • The Best of Enemies (1961) Euro-Bis as Italian soldier. There is an Italian soldier who appears in the closing scene who bears a resemblence to Ennio, but it isn't him (agreed by cinemaitaliano and FatmanDan).
  • Pane burro e marmellata (1977) Listed on ANICA as playing an inn-keeper but I've checked the film and he's nowhere to be found - Johan

The earliest role I've found for Ennio so far is as a Pirate in I pirati della costa (1960)

I'm pretty sure this is also Ennio as a Jewish man, walking behind Gianni Di Segno, in Esther and the King (1960).

Since Ennio and Di Segni were both professional boxers before becoming actors then it's highly likely they knew each other. They would appear together in several other films through the years and both became favourites of Fellini.
