Robert Sacchi


Born - 27 March 1932, Rome, Italy
Died - 23 June 2021

Saturnine, dark-haired American actor with scowling smile, who bore a remarkable resemblance to screen icon Humphrey Bogart, and made a lifetime career from impersonating the great man in films and TV series: they were even the same height - exactly 5ft 8in. Born Roberto Sacchi, he first played his lookalike (as 'The Bogeyman') in Pulp (1972). Subsequent credits include Across 110th Street (1972), Shhh (1975), The Man With Bogart's Face (1980), E. Nick: A Legend in His Own Mind (1984), Funland (1987), Another Chance (1988), Cold Heat (1989), Die Hard 2 (1990), The Naked Truth (1992) and Blast from the Past (1999), his last. His (second) wife of more than 50 years, Peruvian artist Angela de Herrera, survives him.
