Armando Falconi (1871–1954) was an Italian stage and film actor who appeared in more than forty films during his career. He played the lead in the 1931 comedy The Charmer.[2]

Life and career

Born in Rome, Falconi was the son of two Neapolitan stage actors.[3] His elder brother Arturo Falconi also became an actor. He first worked as an employee and an officer before starting to work as a professional actor in the late 1890s.[3] In 1901 he married the actress Tina Di Lorenzo, with whom he often teamed up on stage.[3] Following several national and foreign tours, in 1912 he founded the Stable Company of the Manzoni Theatre in Milan.[3] Following the retirement of his wife in 1920, he directed the company Compagnia Comoedia, and headed in a number of other companies, notably having a remarkable success with the musical comedy Wunder Bar.[3] After having appeared in some silent films between 1915 and 1918, in the 1930s Falconi intensified his cinema activities, starring in a number of comedy films.[3] Widowed since 1930, he remarried to actress Elisabetta Svoboda (also known with the stage name Lili Svett) in 1942.[3] His son Dino Falconi was a screenwriter, director, journalist and playwright.[3]
