The Actor Who Disappeared (Italian: L'attore scomparso is a 1941 Italian comedy mystery crime film directed by Luigi Zampa and starring Vivi Gioi, María Mercader and Giulio Donadio. It is a remake of the German film Was wird hier gespielt? (1940) based on the eponymous play by Theo Lingen.[1] It was shot at the Cinecittà Studios in Rome. The film's sets were designed by the art director Giorgio Pinzauti.


A young actor, frustrated by the negligible roles he keeps being cast in, plans a hoax. The play he is appearing in, involves his character being shot dead while hiding in a cupboard by an outraged husband. However, when the door is opened he has completely vanished forcing the management to return the audience's money. However, one of the spectators, a police officer had received an anonymous letter claiming that a murder was to take place at that theatre that night and begins an investigation.
