Emiliano discovered Nancy credited as Nancy Mazzei in the fotoromanzo Tipo N.56: "Non costa niente sognare" (published August 1966) where she plays "la regina" / "the queen"

lecchini fotoromanzo2.jpg

Indeed, Nancy had a very successful career in fotoromanzi, and her participations in the notorious fotoromanzo nero serial Killing are especially memorable.

Here's Nancy in Killing N. 35: "Le dannate del vizio" (15 February 1968), where she first looks like a nice little lady
Killing 35 - Nancy Lecchini1.jpg

But she's not as nice as she seems as we see later when she is torturing poor Eleonora Geri :o
Killing 35 - Nancy Lecchini2.jpg

Nancy also appears in Killing N. 41: "Un cadavere che vale" (15 May 1968), where she has a very memorable encounter with Killing

But naturally, Nancy also appeared in more traditional fotoromanzi.

Here in "Passione sul Lago Amaro", a fotoromanzo in 4 parts published in Grand Hotel throughout December 1966

"Pietà per gli innocenti", a fotoromanzo in 5 parts published in Grand Hotel from December 1966 to January 1967

Although the majority of roles we've found for Nancy are from the 1960s and 70s, we've also found a few from the 1950s.

The absolute earliest sighting of Nancy is in Amori di mezzo secolo (1954) as a friend of Paola Borboni

Another early discovery is in I pappagalli (1955) in the audience at the concert - identification by Ghibarian
Pappagalli - Horowitz + Lecchini.jpg

Another 1960s role in Stuntman (1968) as a wedding guest - sorry for the crappy quality

Our beloved Nancy as one of the many many generici in the restaurant scene of Continuavano a chiamarlo Trinità (1971) as a diner who disapproves of the table manners of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill - identification by Ciavazzaro

Up until now, we've had a big gap in Nancy's filmography in the years between 1955 and 1965. Well, I'm now going to fill some of those gaps with some new roles.

First a 1950s role in Totò a Parigi (1958) - just a few seconds role as a train passenger
Toto Parigi - Nancy Lecchini.jpg

Nancy also appears in one of the most famous of all Italian films:
Fellini's La dolce vita (1960) where she can be seen as a party guest! :clap:
La Dolce Vita - Nancy Lecchini1.jpg
La Dolce Vita - Nancy Lecchini2.jpg

Therefore she must of course also appear in Totò, Peppino e... la dolce vita (1961) as a concerned bystander
Toto Peppino Dolce Vita - Lecchini.jpg

And here a dark-haired Nancy in the Hollywood production Come September (1961) as a woman at the train station
Come September - Nancy Lecchini1.jpg
Come September - Nancy Lecchini2.jpg

I've also found Nancy in the famous cult comedy Trastevere (1971)! It's an enormous and unfairly uncredited role where she looks almost unrecognizable! They made here look as ugly as possible - with grey hair and no make-up
Trastevere - Nancy Lecchini1.jpg
Trastevere - Nancy Lecchini2.jpg
They even painted some of her teeth dark - a trick used very often in Italian films to make the actors appear ugly
Trastevere - Nancy Lecchini3.jpg

Unfortunately, I'm not really sure about what kind of role she plays in Trastevere, because they all speak Roman dialect which I can't understand. But the film is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MOBOBJLN7s
So maybe someone who understands Roman dialect can tell us her role and if she has a character name. Nancy enters at 1:16:27.

To me it sounds like "SorAmè" , that means Sora (=signora) Amelia.
