mario brega is credited as playing mandy on the final credits... did i completely miss him or was he only part of the extensive film that was cut even from the original cut... i know leone had an unrealistic 10 hours of film he dreamed of putting in the movie.

He's the big hood of the three at the beginning where they shoot up the bed , beating up Fat Moe & he's also in the Chinese Theater searching for DeNiro, looks different without a beard, huh?

  Sorry - I think you may be wrong.  The big hood is an actor called Frank Gio - listed in the credits as Beefy.  I saw him recently in Analyze That - played De Niro gangster rival Lou The Wrench.

Excuse me, i know it as ever been dicussed, but i who is mario bregga in that film??? he is credited, and i don''t think he is one of the killers of the begining...

I read (in "conversation with sergio leone") that he was actually a butcher in Rome, "a little bit gangster", and a friend of leone (according to the Master himself).

Mario plays Mandy, one of the killers looking for Noodles in the opium den, at the beginning of the film, after the girl is killed.  He is thinner than in the westerns, has no beard.  Someone had captured and posted a photo from this, maybe on the old board.

Ah cool that's very interesting I saw this topic arise on imdb and someone said he was the guy that child noodles falls on, when spying on deborah. The guy taking a wee.

He's the one who's leaning against a table during the Moe beating scene. If I'm not mistaken he has a cigar, but I'm not too sure.

Those three men(Ahh, three, the perfect number!) are the same guys sitting in the back of the restaurant during the first scene with Joe Pesci.

Look at the way he looks in The Great Silence and then the guy in OUATIA. Same guy.
