Grey-haired old woman

Grey-haired old woman in Detenute violente (1983)
Detenute violente.jpg

Here is another unidentified generica who worked extensively in Italian cinema, from at least the mid 1950s and until the mid 1990s, usually cast in distinctly unglamorous roles. Her most substantial role appears to have been in the women-in-prison film Detenute violente, where she has a pretty big role as the prison's sympathetic cleaning lady and it is possible (uncredited) that she is credited there, but impossible to determine for the time being.

Our dear has a lot of fun in Diario segreto in un carcere femminile (1973) as convict.

She appears many times, at least two near Jolanda Fortini (as role was known in this)

Very big role in Perverse oltre le sbarre (1983) as Margot, the prison's cleaning lady

This is pretty much exactly the same role that she plays in Detenute violente (1983), which was made back-to-back with this film.

Also a small speaking role in Luci lontane (1987) as Old woman
