Gino Corrado (9 February 1893 – 23 December 1982) was an Italian-born film actor. He appeared in nearly 400 films between 1916 and 1954, almost always in small roles as a character actor. He was often cast as a waiter, headwaiter or maitre d'.

Career[edit]

Born in Florence, Italy, Corrado is considered to have one of the most impressive filmographies of any actor; for example, he is the only actor to appear in Gone With The Wind, Citizen Kane and Casablanca, three of the leading films of Hollywood's Golden Age. He made his film debut in D.W. Griffith's Intolerance in 1916, and appeared in such other silent classics as The Ten Commandments and Sunrise. By the time sound arrived, he had already been reduced to a bit player, but worked constantly (making 18 appearances just in 1939) and was always a welcome presence. He is especially prized by Three Stooges fans for his appearances in Saved by the Belle, An Ache in Every Stake and Micro-Phonies. His final role was a shoe salesman in the 1954 Martin and Lewis comedy Living It Up.

Death[edit]

Corrado died in Los Angeles, California in December 1982 at age 89. His grave is located at Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery, and his gravestone epitaph is etched with Corrado's video screen-image from the classic Three Stooges short, Micro-Phonies, with the inscription, "Forever On The Screen —- Forever In Our Hearts".
