Adolfo Celi

  1. Michael Lonsdale, Der Name der Rose/The Name of the Rose, France-Italy-West Germany, 1986. For Umberto Eco’s medieval monk detective, William of Baskerville,  Jean-Jacques Annaud was a trifle leery about having the Sean Connery andall his Bond baggage. And yet the realisateur offered the Abbot to Celi, the Italian 007 villain from Thunderball, 1965, and Lonsdale, the more recent Bond villain in Moonraker,1978.  Go figure.
