Granny Big-Ears

Post by Johan Melle » 20/12/2020, 22:04

The unidentified woman known as "Granny Big-Ears" in Il ladro della Gioconda (1966)

This older generica, characterized by her large ears and flappy cheeks, specialized in playing little old ladies (usually of poor social standing) in a number of Italian films from at least the late 1950s and until the early 1970s.

La pecora nera (1968) as Poor old woman in the queue. Only seen briefly when the camera pans past her, so it's hard to get a real good look at her and say for sure if it's her, so I'll add this as an uncertain ID.
