"Poor Old Woman"

"Poor Old Woman" in Degueyo (1966)
This generica looks to have been quite active in Italian cinema from at least the start of the 1960s and until the mid 1980s. Given her haggard and completely unglamorous appearance she obviously never appeared in party scenes alongside the likes of Bruno Alias or Lella Cattaneo, but instead specialized in portraying poor women of low social standing in numerous films.

Degueyo (1966) as Danger City townswoman. This is a pretty good role for our generica, who appears in numerous scenes throughout the film and speaks a couple of lines here and there.

l ritorno del gladiatore più forte del mondo (1971) as Christian.

Life for Christian women in peplums was a pretty dull affair, so they obviously relieved the boredom by swapping clothes! :D
