as Dante D'Paulo)

Blood and Black Lace (1964)
Frank Sacalo aka Franco Sacalo
The murder yarn unspools in and around the fashion salon Christiana Haute Coutoure, which is essentially an old dark house full of beautiful young women and lorded over by Christiana Cuomo (Eva Bartok). All is not well within these well-appointed walls, however. The tetchy Christiana is a recent widow; the nervous Marco (Massimo Rigie) has a drug habit and a crush on one of the models; the sickly Franco (Dante DiPaolo) has his own habit; among the girls, Nicole (Ariana Gorini) runs cocaine and Peggy (Mary Arden) is hiding a recent abortion.

The Girl Who Knew Too Much (1963)
aka The Evil Eye (USA 1654)
Andrea Landini
From a review: The supporting cast is excellent, particularly the ambivalent reporter Landini (Dante DePaolo) who sketches extremes of Sinister, Plaintive, and Pathetic in a just a few brief strokes.

A revue in the tradition of the Ziegfeld Follies, composed of a number of musical and comedy numbers. Highlights include Judy Garland's "A Great Lady Has an Interview" (aka "Madame Crematante"), Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire in "The Babbitt and the Bromide" (the only time they ever danced together on screen), and Fred Astaire and Lucille Bremer in "Limehouse Blues." This film was in the making for about three years or more. Each segment was filmed by a different director, and the entire film was assembled and released in 1945 for preview. It was then pulled back and reworked, and finally released in April 1946.

Dante is part of the 1:33 minute segment called "A Great Lady Has an Interview" (aka "The Interview" or "Madame Crematante") which is sung and danced by Judy Garland and the Men's Chorus
