Franco Franchi

  1. Ron Perlman, Der Name der Rose/The Name of the Rose, France-Italy-West Germany, 1986.    The shock suggestion for the deformed Salvatore refused to mess with his image as half of the Sicilian slapstick movie comics, Franco Franchi & Ciccio Ingrassia. In some 130 movies during the 60s-70s, they were worse than Abbott & Costello, even if Jayne Mansfield, on her uppers, shared one of their travesties, L’Amore primitivo/Primitive Love, 1964.   (Ciccio died in 2003).
