Pini, Aldo

Post by PeplumParadise » 27/09/2021, 17:18

From "Cineguida 1949"
Aldo Pini was a small-part character actor, active in Italian films from at least the mid-1930's until the mid-1960's.

Biographical note[1]
  • Birthplace: Bologna.
  • Height: 1,79.
  • Weight: 72 kg.
  • Instruction: istituto tecnico.
  • Acting school: accademia di recitazione.
  • Languages: English, French (knowledge of Spanish and German).
  • Prose theater (Gramatica, Zacconi theatre troupes, etc.) and revue theatre (even on his own as "capocomico").
  • He lived in Roma, via Rasella, 131.
His unconfirmed biographical details, repeated by many sources, are that he was born on April 6th 1909 in Bologna, Italy and died on February 11th 1990 in Ferrara.

I have found a number of undocumented roles for Aldo, so I'm sure there will be more, particularly from the 30's and 40's.

Titles to check
  • Teresa Confalonieri (1934) - ANICA
  • Campo di maggio (1935) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949
  • Il Conte di Bréchard (1937) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949
  • Ai vostri ordini, signora... (1939) - ANICA
  • Eravamo settbe vedove (1939) - ANICA as Marine
  • La fanciulla di Portici (1940) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949
  • Catene invisibili (1942) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949 as altro losco amico di Enrico
  • Fra' Diavolo (1942) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949 as altro brigante. In the poor quality copies available it didn't seem like Aldo in this role, so I think better to wait for a better quality copy to appear to make sure. He is not credited.
  • Il fanciullo del West (1942) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949 as John Donovan
  • La fabbrica dell'imprevisto (1942) - ANICA
  • La maestrina (1942) - ANICA
  • Quota 731 (1942) - Cineguida 1949
  • Stasera niente di nuovo (1942) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949 as complice di Giorgio
  • Un colpo di pistola (1942) - ANICA/Cineguida 1949. I looked through this one a couple of times without spotting Aldo, though the copy I found was not great. He is not credited.
  • Un tiro en reserva (1942) - IMDb
  • Il diavolo va in collegio (1944 or 45) - ANICA as regista
  • Barriera a settentrione (1950) - ANICA as milite guardia di finanza
  • L'ultimo amante (1955) - ANICA as Nello
  • La catena dell'odio (1955) - ANICA as Nardi
  • Malafemmena (1957) - ANICA as Defence lawyer
  • Terrore sulla città (1957) - ANICA
No Aldo!
Titles where Pini is credited with appearing somewhere online, but I was unable to find him
  • Cuori sul mare (1950) It is "Aldo Dini" who is credited, see below
  • Perdonami! (1953) There is an "Aldo Dini" credited who some websites think is a mis-spelling of Pini, but with at least 4 credited roles it would appear that Dini is actually another actor (and possibly a generico!)
  • Hanno rubato un tram (1954) ANICA with no role. I've been through this film pretty thoroughly without managing to find Aldo.
  • Le schiave di Cartagine (1956) IMDb with no role. Does not appear. I assume that this film, which was released as "The Sword and the Cross" in English, has been confused with La spada e la croce (1958), in which Aldo does appear.
  • I magnifici tre (1961) This one contains a credit for a "Lido Pini" which again some sources believe should belong to Aldo, but again he is nowhere to be seen so this is presumably yet another actor with a similar-sounding name.
  • I due della legione (1962) This is another credit for "Aldo Dini".
  • Sette contro tutti (1965) IMDb with no role. Does not appear. Maybe confused with his appearance in Gli schiavi più forti del mondo, aka Seven Slaves Against Rome?
