Dwarf Actors in Peplums

PEPLUM: PEPLUM Forum

In the Peplum and Spaghetti westerns a number of dwarf actors appeared. These small people were mainly circus performers who also made a living as character actors. Does anyone have any biographical information on Arnaldo Fabrizio aka Little Goliath. He appeared in such Peplums as Goliath and the Sins of Babylon (1963), The Ten Gladiators (1963), Seven Slaves Against Rome (1964), Samson and the Mighty Challenge (1964), Messalina vs. the Son of Hercules (1964), Seven Rebel Gla...diators (1965) and the adventure film Brancaleone at the Crusades (1970). Arnaldo appeared in the Spaghetti westerns: Any Gun Can Play (1967), Garter Colt (1967), Boot Hill (1969) and God Will Forgive My Gun (1969).

Another is Salvatore Furnari who appeared in The Warrior and the Slave Girl (1958), Goliath and the Dragon (1960), Hercules and the Captive Women (1961) Vulcan son of Jupiter (1962) among others and westerns God Will Forgive My Gun (1969), The 4 Gunmen of the Holy Trinity (1970) and Bad Kids of the West (1973). Any help would be appreciated.
