Franco Fabrizi


Mr. Fabrizi was Italian actor best known for his performance as the lady-killer among a group of small-town youths in Federico Fellini's 'I Vitelloni'. Starting as a stage and variety revue actor in 1947, he broke into film in 1952 with Francesco De Roberti's 'Carica Eroica'. His role as a tireless philanderer became characteristic of his on-screen and off- screen persona. The actor was linked in the gossip columns of the dolce vita period to a long line of actresses and society doyennes. Though rarely cast in leading roles, Mr. Fabrizi appeared in about 150 films, usually playing superficial opportunistic sidekicks.
