Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Kitzmiller (December 4, 1913 - February 23, 1965) was an African-American actor. Born in Battle Creek, Michigan, Kitzmiller participated in the liberation of Italy during World War II. He began acting while stationed in this country, and appeared in Italian neorealist films. He made Italy his permanent residence and starred in more than fifty European films, often portraying an angry black man fighting racism. He played the leading role of "Jerry" in the film Senza piet (Without Pity), written by Federico Fellini. He received awards commemorating both his role as an actor and as a soldier: he received the Victory Medal and in 1957 was the first black actor to win a best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for his role in the Slovenian film Valley of Peace.show more
