Italian actor Tullio Carminati enjoyed a long career in international cinema that stretched from the 1910s to the 1960s. Carminati began appearing in Italian silent films in 1914 and had become a matinee idol by 1916. He would star in about 37 silent films until 1925 when, frustrated with the state of the Italian film industry, he journeyed to Hollywood without any viable prospects or a proper grasp of English. He managed to secure a contract with United Artists but the rise of talkies eventually compelled him to relocate to New York to pursue a stage career. Carminati's appearance in a Preston Sturges play in the early 1930s proved to be so successful that Hollywood beckoned once again. He continued to appear in various films until 1941, when, shortly after the United States entered into war, Carminati was imprisoned and then deported back to Italy for anti-American activities. This period proved to be rather successful for Carminati's career in international film as he managed to work with a considerable number of stars and brilliant directors. He appeared in René Clair's 1950 drama "Beauty and the Devil," William Wyler's 1953 classic "Roman Holiday" alongside Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, Roberto Rossellini's 1954 drama "Joan of Arc at the Stake" alongside Ingrid Bergman, King Vidor's 1956 adaptation of Tolstoy's "War and Peace," Anthony Mann's 1961 epic "El Cid" alongside Charlton Heston, and Otto Preminger's 1963 drama "The Cardinal" - Carminati's final film.
