Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Adolfo Celi vintage movie posters from his critically acclaimed catalog of timeless cinematic performances.

Adolfo Celi was born on July 27th, 1922 in Curcuraci, Messina, Sicily. Celi was an Italian actor and director who appeared in almost 100 movies, specializing in international villains. He was internationally known for playing Emilio Largo in the 1965 James Bond film Thunderball, but he was already a prominent actor in the Italian film industry.

The Italian filmmaker became an actor in post-war Italy and left the Italian film industry when he moved to Brazil. In Brazil, he co-founded the Teatro Brasileiro de Comédia together with Paulo Autran and Tônia Carrero in São Paulo, Brazilian stage greats. In Argentina and Brazil, Adolfo Celi became a successful stage actor. He also directed three films in the 1950s in South America including Tico-Tico no Fubá, a Brazilian hit in 1952. He changed his career trajectory when he played the villain in That Man from Rio by Philippe de Broca. The film’s popularity led him to another role as camp commandant Battaglia in the drama Von Ryan’s Express, in which Celi featured with Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard. This led him to his breakout role in Thunderball. Adolfo Celi is also known internationally as one of the villains, Ralph Valmont, in the action thriller Danger: Diabolik by Mario Brava. The Italian actor and director appeared as a protagonist in some comedy films in Italy like Brancaleone alle Crociate and Amici Miei, and in mini-series like Petrosino and La Baronessa di Carini. He was fluent in many languages, including Spanish, English, French, German and Portugues. Adolfo Celi passedd in Siena in 1986 due to a heart attack.
