Another memorable and very funny role for Josephine in Lezioni private (1975), in the scene where an exhibitionist (Leopoldo Trieste) flashes himself in front of a group of old tourist ladies. But instead of being shocked, the women are very excited! Josephine and Lella Cattaneo are particularly excited and take pictures and get close to poor Leopoldo, who is not very pleased :D

And together with Lydia Zanussi in Buona parte di Paolina (1973) as a noblewoman - originally posted by dusso in Lydia's topic

I've just found quite a nice role for Josephine in Franco, Ciccio e le vedove allegre (1968) in the segment "La vedova del nonno".

She has a scene at the airport when Raimondo Vianello comes to meet the American widow of his deceased grandfather. He hasn't met her before, so when he sees the old American woman played by Josephine, he assumes she's his "grandmother" and greets her with a kiss, which she finds rather strange :D

He's about to take her home with him, but then he's called on the intercom to meet the real "grandmother" (which turns out to be young, pretty Margaret Lee) and leaves a confused and displeased-looking Josephine behind :p

Also spotted in the American film Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell (1968) as Woman at the fancy restaurant

I love Josephine !
So happy for these new roles.
And im sure at 90 percent she is also in IL BACIO DI UNA MORTA in a resturant scene i think, but i need the movie because she is covered by another generico i don't remember which one.

Yes, very cool! Unfortunately, the image isn't very sharp, but one can still recognize her distinct features.
