The Italian actor Michele Placido celebrated his 77th birthday this year. In the series, he portrayed Commissioner Corrado Cattani, the head of the police in the Sicilian city of Trapani. I wonder what one of the main global sex symbols of the 80s looks like today?
Commissioner Corrado Cattani was a favorite of the Soviet audience. Crowds of Soviet women gathered around their television sets eagerly watching the brave Cattani, a fierce fighter against the mafia.
Thanks to the global success of the series, it didn’t limit itself to just one season (there were 10 seasons in total). However, Placido decided to leave the series at the end of the fourth season, not wanting to be confined to a single role in the minds of the viewers. Clearly, with the actor’s departure after the fourth season, the beloved hero of all, Commissioner Cattani, also came to an end.
