This one from L'ultima preda del vampiro looks to be a better match with Gertie and the Amazon above I thinkscreenshot30.jpg
Aside from the first shot, I think it really could be her, yes, and I assume there are no better candidates from the vampire film.

I think she's a better match for 6 than 16, but some more input would be welcome.
There's only one other actress in L'ultima preda del vampiro who could be a possibility and she looks quite different from any of the possible images of Tilde.

I agree looking at those 3 identifications together she must be No.6

Well, another one found then! Which means one of the few remaining unidentified who has several credits is Luisa Rispoli. If IMDb is correct, she is the same person as Maria Luisa Rispoli, and also used the pseudonym Susan Baker. As far as I can tell, this is correct.

Here she is credited as "Susan Baker" in Agente Z 55 missione disperata (1965)

Also as "Susan Baker" in Kriminal (1966)

And here as Luisa Rispoli in Come svaligiammo la banca d'Italia (1966). Definitely the same woman as in the other two movies in my opinion

I've no idea which amazon she could be, though! We really need some pics from her other early 1960s roles to make a better comparison!

Yeah, looks like the same girl, but I must say I don't see anyone looking terribly much like her among the amazons...

Here is Luisa in I mostri

In Totò contro Maciste there are 4 unidentified actresses at the bottom of the cast list, of which Luisa is the very last. The only unidentified actresses in the film are handmaidens, none of whom are seen very prominently, of which the most likely candidate looks to be the one on the right here.

I agree there isn't any obvious candidate among the remaining Amazons who looks like it could be her

Meanwhile trying one last time with Nadia Bianchi, from the images we have of her I really think she is our No.4. No. 17 was also suggested, but I think she seems quite different.

You're right, Nick! She is definitely not number 17. Looking at the pictures, I agree she is number 4. I guess I was a bit thrown by the constantly changing hairstyles, so great job making all the IDs of her. I see now that she has a pretty distinctive nose that makes her easier to recognize.

and with that I think we've gone about as far as we can at the present time, but we've been quite successful so big thanks to those who have helped with the identifications.

Luisa Rispoli remains a mystery, since we have enough images to identify her but no Amazons who seem to match.

Wanda Brizio there are several potential matches, but the images we have are not really definitive enough to be certain.

As for the rest they may eventually turn up in fotoromanzi, TV series or magazines, but otherwise there's not much hope.

Yes, I'd say our efforts have been very successful. My compliments for putting together all the pictures, which was no small job!

Of course, the question still remains as to whether any of the actresses identified here are good candidates for future topics. I understand a Nadia Bianchi topic might be on the way, at least.
