Before they were PEPLUM stars: Angelo Zanolli

I came across this clip from ARRANGIATEVI on Youtube which stars Angelo Zanolli. Angelo appeared in 4 PEP films, including SON OF SAMSON (below with Mark Forest) where he played Pharaoh Kenamun. This is a sizeable role and I always wondered what happened to him. He was memorable in that film. I always thought he was excellent and had a dignified quality to him which was great for a Pharaoh. He also starred in HERCULES UNCHAINED, MORGAN THE PIRATE and MACISTE IN HELL. All great films. After MACISTE IN HELL, Angelo disappeared from the face of the earth. He appeared in ARRANGIATEVI before his Sword & Sandal flicks.
