Mirko Bajocchi in Fantozzi (1975)

user posted image

This surprisingly unknown generico appeared in many movies shot in Rome in 60s and 70s, and he's famous as Maestro Canello because of the role he played in Fantozzi (1975), so I think he too deserves a topic.

Very happy to see another generico. He's name's was revealed to me by Simone Ribeiro last year with these words: "Mirko Bajocchi, musicista e generico Ŕ presente in decine e decine di pellicole fra i primi anni Quaranta ed i Settanta e tranne che i primi anni (uno che balla nei "saloni" od uno fra un pubblico teatrale) quasi sempre suona uno strumento musicale, spesso un pianoforte, o un contrabbasso o una chitarra: elencato eccezionalmente in coda al primo FANTOZZI (1974-'75) interpreta il Maestro D'anello, colui che, per beccare doppia paga, mette avanti le lancette dell'orologio alla Festa ove presente Fantozzi e colleghi, per poter esser puntuale altrove.

He's credited as Baiocchi in Fantozzi and I've discovered that he's yet credited in Splendori e miserie di madame Royale. Unfortunately I don't have this second movie to make a snapshot.

I suppose this man sitting on the left could be Mirko... what do you think?

It's from Nel gorgo del peccato (1954), so it would be the first spotting so far.

Mirko is one of thos guys that I don't know very well, so maybe this is wrong, but could this be him at the night club in Arriva Dorellik (1967)???

Posted by: Ciavazzaro July 29, 2018 05:27 pm
I think he is him.
Let's see what also vecchiaguardia says !

Posted by: carlos July 29, 2018 06:05 pm
Looks like him to me too, Who is that across the table?

Posted by: Johan Melle July 29, 2018 06:15 pm
Thanks guys! Looks like I got it right, then.

The other man by the table is the so-called 'Sinister-looking man' whom we still haven't been able to identify...

Posted by: carlos July 29, 2018 06:17 pm
Good! Thanks Johan

Posted by: vecchiaguardia July 30, 2018 01:46 pm
It's Mirko for sure! smile2.gif

Posted by: Johan Melle July 30, 2018 03:39 pm
Thanks for confirming. It's a rare non-musician role for him then.
