RIP : Riccardo Garrone

Italian actor Riccardo Garrone passed away on March 14. He was 89 years old. Great actor with a very long list of films, including LA DOLCE VITA. Of his many films, he appearance just in a handful of PEPLUM films. I like him and this is sad.


Riccardo's best role in a PEPLUM film is definitely in SAPPHO - THE VENUS OF LESBOS. He played Hyperbius, who tries to woe Sappho (Tina Louise). He's great in it.


Riccardo starred with Jeanne Valérie in SALAMMBO

Riccardo in CAPTAIN FRACASSE

Riccardo had a supporting role in PONTIUS PILATE starring Jean Marais
