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 had a supporting role in PONTIUS PILATE starring Jean Marais
