Uncredited actors listed by other sources
Mirko Ellis - IMDb with no role. Mirko is a well-known actor who you would usually expect to be credited if he appeared. I can't see him anywhere in the film.

Unidentified actors
This film is split into 2 halves. The first half, telling the story of Gideon, was shot in Spain, so I assume all the generici here should be Spanish.

Unidentified actors
The second half of the film, telling the story of Samson, was shot in Italy, so I would assume all the generici here (and in the following post) should be Italian. All the identified uncredited Italian actors come from this section.

I'm undecided if this is one of our whitebeards. The only possibilities I think are that it could be a second role for either The Elegant Prophet (the moustache seems too thin for him) or Antonio Proietti, but I'm not at all sure, or maybe he's just another whitebeard to add to the pile.

The actor behind Lucio De Santis bears some resemblance to Angelo Casadei, but the nose seems completely different so I don't really think it's him. What do others think?

These are both the same role of Samson's mother, but set some 30 years apart. The older version is played by Ana María Noé, but it seems to me like it's a different actress playing the younger version. Any opinions?

Proietti for me.

And the other one really does look like Casadei. Speaking of him, the whip-wielding guy in 58-59 seems like a lot like Casadei too, but impossible to really say from those pics. It definitely looks like him on the far left in 64 too.

Same woman in my opinion, but with plenty of make-up in the young scenes, and none in the old scenes.
