A tribute to women of Italian cinema just concluded at BAM and raven haired beauty Claudia Cardinale was one of the ladies being honored. Sure, she was weak when it came to speaking English (see Don't Make Waves with Tony Curtis) but there's no denying the stunning looks of this doe eyed vixen.
But don't mistake her for vacant, she is a major humanitarian with pro-gay and pro-women stances, and she gave many commanding and serious performances over her career. You might recognize her from any one of her many, many films including the spaghetti western Once Upon a Time in the West. My favorite is 8 1/2. Plus, she is downright gorgeous.
