Gorassini, Annie

Annie Gorassini in Vulcano, figlio di Giove (1962)

Annie Gorassini was an actress and model who was somewhat typecast in "sexy" roles. She was active in Italian films from the late 1950's until the late 1960's, with a few odd roles during the mid to late 80's.

Most websites list her as being born in 1941 in Milan, Italy. Tom Betts has told me the specific date of January 8th, while Italian Wikipedia alone lists January 1st and says her family was of French origin.

In 1957 she represented Italy in the Miss World contest, where she does not win but is seen by producers. She began her film career in 1959 and worked steadily for the next decade, mostly appearing in roles which required her to appear in lingerie, bikinis or other skimpy attire.

She abandoned her film career in the late 60's, trying her hand instead at television presenting, singing and writing song lyrics.

Following a few TV roles in the late 80's she reportedly devoted her time to writing.

As far as is known she is still living at the time of writing.

Saffo, Venere di Lesbo (1960) as Dila.

She isn't credited in the English version, but may be in the Italian.
