His identification by Ghibarian:

Very good news: I've found his name!

In the book Fellini's faces there is almost the same shot from the movie Roma (1972)
and according to this book our generico is Augusto Brenna.

So finally we know his name; I'm very happy! biggrin.gif

Johan Melle: Absolutely fantastic news! And it makes perfect sense since he was credited as "August Bren" in Genius N. 3!

Ciavazzaro: Wow that's a wonderful news !!!
A great way to ending to the year,hoping the next we will found a lot of more names of our beloved generici !!!
My compliment ghibarian !!!!!

Emiliano: I echo the words of Ciavazzaro, Ghibarian is doing a great job. It also has a great intuition.

It's been a long time since I've discovered Augusto in any films but here he is in James Tont operazione D.U.E. (1966) at the congress of secret agents:
brenna james.jpg

Augusto as one of Gia Sandri's suitors in La sfida dei giganti (1965):
brenna la sfida.jpg

And Augusto's filmography continues to grow. Now spotted as an audience member at the gladiator fight in I due gladiatori (1964):

Here's Augusto's nice little role in the 'fotoromanzo nero' Genius N. 3: "Una bara per Sam" (April 1966)
Genius 3 - August Bren1.jpg
Genius 3 - August Bren2.jpg

The Genius fotoromanzi usually have cast lists but they tend to 'Americanize' the names of the actors, and so Augusto is credited here as August Bren

And here's Augusto at the casino in Kriminal (1966)
Kriminal - Augusto Brenna1.jpg
Kriminal - Augusto Brenna2.jpg

Also seen very briefly (on the right) as a spectator in Assassinio made in Italy (1963)
Assassinio Italy - Augusto Brenna.jpg

And as a party guest in the TV series FBI - Francesco Bertolazzi Investigatore (1970) - episode 5: "Labbra serrate"
