Adriana Bruno in L'ossessa (1974)
L'Ossessa - Adriana Bruno.jpg

Adriana Bruno is a generica who was very busy in the 70s, and particularly active in "poliziotteschi". She often plays nuns, maids, prostitutes or angry women in crowds. For over a decade, she has worked a great deal in Italian cinema, suspending her activity at the end of 1982.

After many years of trying to identify her, our forum user "Ciavazzaro" finally managed to identify her, thanks to her very large and credited role as Andy Luotto's human mother in SuperAndy, il fratello brutto di Superman (1979). In the same year she has another credited role in L'insegnante balla con tutta la classe, in which she plays a school teacher.
