Folco Lulli
Date of Birth
Jan 01, 1912
Birth Place:
Florence, Italy


In Italy, as in America, there are whole legions of actors whose faces are more familiar than their names. Folco Lulli was one of that proud breed. Stage-trained, Lulli made his film bow in 1946's Il Bandito, released in English-speaking countries in 1947 as The Bandit. Lulli worked skillfully if somewhat anonymously in European productions from 1946 through 1968, playing character parts in such films as Flight into France (1949), An Eye for an Eye (1960), Lafayette (1963) and Marco the Magnificent (1966). It was for a French film that Folco Lulli is best remembered: he was costarred with Yves Montand, Peter Van Eyck and Charles Vanel in that classic nail-biter about nitroglycerin truck drivers, The Wages of Fear (1953). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
