Biography

Franco Franchi (born Francesco Benenato, 18 September 1928 – 9 December 1992) was an Italian comedian.

He was born in Palermo, Sicily and began his career in the 1950s, although his career only really took off in the 1960s. He starred in many comedies, mainly as a duo with Ciccio Ingrassia but also in more dramatic material such as Luigi Comencini's 'Adventures of Pinocchio (1972), in which they paired memorably as the Fox and the Cat.

In the film Due Marines e un Generale (1966), he worked with Buster Keaton and Ciccio Ingrassia.
