Terry Dalton

Terry Dalton in the fotoromanzo "Ti odio, amore mio!" (1949)

Terry Dalton.jpg

Tall (170 cm), raven-haired and blessed with a natural elegance and sophistication, Terry Dalton is easily distinguished among many female extras who were active in the 1950s.

Born in 1931, Terry originally studied classical dance at the Teatro dell'Opera in Rome, but after landing a part as an extra in Cagliostro (1949) with Orson Welles, she decided to persue a career in films. Parts as an extra in important productions like Fabiola, La leggenda di Faust and Gli ultimi giorni di Pompei followed, and she was subsequently cast in the leading role in the fotoromanzo "Ti odio, amore mio!", published in the magazine Sogno during 1949. She continued to star in a few more fotoromanzi in the early 1950s, but primarily kept herself busy with cinema. She doesn't appear to have been credited in any films, but can be spotted in tiny parts in numerous 1950s productions - frequently appearing in sequences featuring dance.

Terry's first fotoromanzo "Ti odio, amore mio!", published in Sogno from April to September 1949, and based on the novel by the famous romance writer Dora Mancuso

The cast list incorrectly spells her surname as Delton

A few years passed before she returned in her second fotoromanzo, "Camelia tra le fiamme", published in Sogno from August to December 1951. This time she appears in a co-starring role and gets the honor of appearing together with Corrado Alba, the number 1 leading man of that era

And here on the cover of Sogno N. 35 (2 September 1951) in a scene from "Camelia tra le fiamme"

Then another leading role - and again opposite Corrado Alba - in "Volto d'angelo", published in Cine Illustrato from July to November 1952. Here on the cover of Cine Illustrato N. 29 (20 July 1952)

Pretty nice little role for Terry in Incantesimo tragico (1951), where she is first a guest at the engagment ball, dancing and enjoying herself with several other generici

And later she's also a guest at the wedding, where she gets to dance with Nino Capozzi
