The Pigeon That Took Rome (1962)

Harry Guardino as "Sgt. Joseph Contini"

Tasked with transmitting reports to Allied soldiers elsewhere in Europe, spies Capt. Paul MacDougall (Charlton Heston) and Sgt. Joseph Contini (Harry Guardino) go to Italy during World War II. The men send their reports with carrier pigeons, and this efficient system allows them time to woo sisters Antonella (Elsa Martinelli) and Rosalba Massimo (Gabriella Pallotta). But when the girls' father cooks most of the birds for dinner, the Americans' airborne delivery system is jeopardized.

Houseboat (1958)

Harry Guardino as "Angelo Donatello"

Tom Winston (Cary Grant) is struggling to raise his three children on his own after his wife's death. After meeting the charming and beautiful Cinzia Zaccardi (Sophia Loren) at a concert, he hires her as a live-in nanny. Unbeknown to Tom, Cinzia is actually a European socialite on the run from her domineering father (Harry Guardino) and has absolutely no experience with cooking, cleaning or raising children. She does, however, have an interest in Tom.
