Credited cast
(actors credited in Italian and English versions)

temberlani.jpg
Carlo Tamberlani
Father of Yotar
This actually seems more like Carlo's brother, Nando Tamberlani, though it is hard to be certain under the make-up. Nando is credited on French posters for the film instead of Carlo, so Carlo's name could be a mistake by the Italian credit writers.

This may be Aldo Pedinotti, who is credited under this name in another film, though it really does not look like him at all, even allowing for prosthetics and make-up

27 is fotoromanzo actress Priscilla Mendez.

50 and 52 looks like Dan Harrison/Bruno Piergentili to me.

65 should be Sergio Ukmar.

66 is Claudio Ruffini, and the man on the right in pic 21 should be him too, I think.

67 is Paolo Casella.

Yeah, I think it could be Lori too.

For Labbia maybe, but not sure.

I'm not sure about the possible Franco Lori. Here he is from another angle. Lori had a very flat nose and this guy's nose seems too big in my opinion.
