Caporale, Aristide

Post by Emiliano » 27/08/2018, 0:46

Aristide Caporale in Amarcord (1973)
Amarcord - Aristide Caporale.jpg

Alias: Aristide Caporali.

Acerra, June 9, 1921 - Rome, April 24, 1990.

Aristide was a cinema extra with a face marked by poverty: broken nose, deep wrinkles like those of an old sailor, from which two large blue eyes stand out. He appears many times credited with small roles. It seems he also worked on the TV.

Aristide appears to have been a beloved favorite of Federico Fellini, who used him in at least four films:

In Fellini Satyricon (1969) he's a servant at the feast (uncredited) - pic by Johan Melle

In I clowns (TV) (1970) he has an uncredited double role - pics by Ghibarian

first as a railwayman

and then later as a clown
I Clowns - Aristide Caporale2.jpg

He also has a small uncredited role at the start of Roma (1972) - pic by Johan Melle
Roma - Aristide Caporale.jpg

And finally in the famous Amarcord (1973) where he is credited

The following year, he has a funny uncredited cameo in Ettore Scola's C'eravamo tanto amati (1974) as a man who's bothering Fellini :D pic by mortimer

Franco, Ciccio e il pirata Barbanera (1969) as Creditor of 1000 guineas for a loan of 300
Aristide is the protagonist of a very funny moment. Twice in the movie, while chasing Ciccio, along with other creditors, he ends up in the sea (of course there is a stunt in the water).
