Mario Zampi


Mario Zampi

Mario Zampi (1 November 1903, Sora, Italy - 2 December 1963, London, England) was a film producer and director. A co-founder of Two Cities Films, he is most closely associated with British comedies of the 1950s.

Zampi started out as an actor in Italy at the age of 17. By 1930, he was working for Warner Bros. as a film editor in London. In 1937, he and fellow compatriate Filippo Del Giudice founded Two Cities Films. While the company was noted for such serious films as In Which We Serve, Henry V, and Hamlet, Zampi is most remembered for comedies. He made his mark with such films as Laughter in Paradise (1951), The Naked Truth (1957), and Too Many Crooks (1959), often in the dual role of director and producer.
