Pagliero, Marcello
(January 15, 1907, Lon­don, England, UK-December 9, 1980, Paris, France)
   Born in Soho, London, to an Italian father from Genoa and a French mother, he was seven years old when his parents settled in Italy. After studying law, he started his professional life as an art and literary critic. His knowledge of English led him to American and Brit­ish film dubbing. Then he co-wrote screenplays (1941 Confessione, Flavio Calzavara, Italy; Les due tigri, also co-dialogist, Giorgio C. Simonelli; 1942 Anime in tumulto, also co-dialogist, Giulio del Torre, Italy; 1943 La danza del fuoco / La danza proibita, also co-dialogist, Giorgio C. Simonelli, Italy; 1945 Si chiude all'alba, as author of original story only, Nino Giannini, Italy). In 1943, he made his directing debut, beginning to shoot a movie that would be completed three years later by another filmmaker (07 . . . tassi).
