Character actor, Eduardo Ciannelli, was born on Aug 30, 1889 in Ischia, Italy. Ciannelli died at the age of 80 on Oct 8, 1969 in Rome, Italy .
Eduardo Ciannelli was an Italian-born character actor who moved from opera singing to acting and became a Hollywood regular from 1937 to 1948, (Winterset, For Whom the Bell Tolls), after which he began to commute between America and Italy. His deeply lined features, as menacing as a snake's head, conveyed all kinds of manic masterminds and Mafia mobsters. His sharp and grating accent was inimitable and his impeccable manners increased the menace beneath. He died from cancer, back in his beloved Rome.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
