Remembering Alberto Lupo
Born Alberto Zoboli on December 19, 1924 in Genoa, Italy. He began his acting career as a theater actor in 1946 and continued until 1952, when he became a fan favorite on TV especially with the females. His deep voice and seductive looks were perfect for romantic roles on both the TV screens and in films. He would appear in over fifty films among which were three Eurowesterns, two being Zorro films, “Zorro in the Court of Spain” (1962) and “Zorro the Intrepid” (1971). The third being “Django Shoots First” (1966). He suffered a cerebral thrombosis and was in a coma for along period of time before finally recovering. Lupo was married at one time to actress Lila Rocco and is the father of actress Eliana Lupo. Alberto died on August 13, 1984 in San Felice Circeo, Italy. Today we remember him on what would have been his 85th birthday.
