6 of the 7 SLAVES AGAINST ROME

From right to left: Gordon Mitchell, Alfio Caltabiano, Mario Novelli, Nello Pazzafini, Pietro Ceccarelli and Pietro Marascalchi. The missing "slave" is Roger Browne.

Pietro Marascalchi did only a few films before disappearing from the face of the earth. Very little is known about him; he was a professional wrestler before entering the world of acting.  As a bunch, they are physically intimidating.

Nello Pazzafini must of appeared in almost all PEPLUMS. I have a lot of them and he has to be in at least 90% of them, and I know he appeared in many SP's also. Some of his roles were small and some bigger both good and bad guy he played. Do you have any other info on him?

Nello was a bouncer and stuntman. He did star in a lot of PEP films. In 1964 he appeared in 17 films. I think that's a record. I'll post about this.
