Alexeievna, Inna

Inna Alexeievna, in Fellini's Faces (1982)
Inna Alexeievna (alias Inna Alexeieff) began her career as background actress in Italian cinema when she was already a old lady, at least from mid 40s, to continue until the end of the seventies.

She is known for her credited role in Il giardino dei Finzi Contini (1970), but most will remember her as the granny who help Corrado Pani in Il gatto dagli occhi di giada (1977). She even appears in some American productions shot in Italy, such as King Vidor's War and Peace (1956) and Sidney Lumet's The Appointment (1969).

Inna has a nice little uncredited role in the italian cult Profumo di donna (1974)
She plays the aunt of Gassman and she speaks quite a lot, so a shame she was uncredited

Her very early role with Totò in Il comandante (1963)

And now Inna's uncredited but speaking role from Che fine ha fatto Totò Baby? (1964) where she gets robbed by Pietro De Vico, just to found later in her bag a body !

Here's the pic of Inna from the already known Dracula cerca sangue di vergine... e morì di sete! a.k.a. Blood for Dracula (1974) where Inna has a very small but credited role as an old tavern waitress

I think I've also found her as a party guest in The Naked Maja (1958) but it's hard to say since the version I have is very poor
PIC LOST


Unfortunately, the version I have of Arabella (1967) is very bad, too, but this is surely Inna as Margaret Rutherford's maid
