Juan de Dios was played by Antonio Moreno.

However, the IMDb also lists Raf Baldassarre as "Juan de Dios." I don't remember seeing Baldassarre in the movie. Bogus credit, or a trick of the eyes? Baldassarre was tall, Moreno's almost a midget, and they look noting alike.

    Is the crazy bell ringer played by the same actor? After intoducing himself to the stranger, he later appears much younger when he reappears after Joe comes off his mule. Are there two crazy bell... more

        I agree with John my database shows Moreno. Baldassarre is definitely wrong.

          My point is the Antonio Moreno in the still looks totaly different from the Juan de Dios that welcomes the stranger, 20 years younger. Watch again for yourselves, I only just noticed the change after ... more

            I see what you mean. No doubt a trick of the lighting, which is different in each scene. The movie was filmed over a period of weeks, so he couldn't have aged much. But it's the same actor in both... more

                Nobody, I give you credit for even noticing such a difference, and I too have seen the movie dozens of times. I have to check this out myself now just to see what you all are talking about.

                  Ok so he was born in 1887 and died 1967 so for me the second bell ringer is no way 75 or so years old, a totally different actor.

                  Hey India, I guess that's what happens when you watch any film a lot. I thought that if the actors are different then maybe it was because Antonio Moreno was unavailable. Also when Noname saves the... more
