Lella Cattaneo

Lella Cattaneo in Il sergente Rompiglioni (1973)

Alias: Angela Bassi Cattaneo.

Lella Cattaneo is a generica who shows up in many films. Before we knew her name, thanks to Ciavazzaro, we nicknamed her the "Old blonde diva" because even though she's always very glamorous and uses a lot of make-up, just like the divas of the 40s. She reminds a little of Barbara Cartland.

Lella Cattaneo was originally identified on the old forum back in 2010, thanks to two of her rare credited roles.

In the obscure giallo La morte scende leggera (1972) she has a small but memorable role as the wife of the owner of the abandoned hotel where Stelio Candelli and Patrizia Viotti are staying. We first see her when she suddenly grabs Stelio's hand in the dark and drops dead to the floor - her throat slashed!
Morte Scende - Lella Cattaneo1.jpg

Morte Scende - Lella Cattaneo3.jpg

However, she reappears at the end of the film when we learn that her death had been faked in an attempt to drive poor Stelio mad!
Morte Scende - Lella Cattaneo4.jpg

The role is small but because there are very few actors in the film, I had a strong suspicion that she was credited, and one of the unknown names in the credits was a certain Lela Cattaneo
Morte Scende - Lella Cattaneo5.jpg

The suspicion was then confirmed with the help of Ciavazzaro, who managed to track down the rare viking film Il tesoro della foresta pietrificata (1965) where Lella Cattenao is also credited.

And she does indeed appear in the film, playing a small role as Oddrun, the witch

Our dear Lella is also credited (under the name Angela Bassi Cattaneo) in another rare film, Madeleine, anatomia di un incubo (1974) in which she has a nice little role as a party guest
Madeleine - Lella Cattaneo1.jpg
Madeleine - Lella Cattaneo2.jpg
Madeleine Credits.jpg

It is worth noting that in Madeleine, Lella appears alongside a white-haired old man who also worked as a generico in countless films
Madeleine - Lella Cattaneo3.jpg
So far, we haven't been able to identify this man, but he frequently appears in couple with Lella, and for this reason he has been nicknamed Lella's Husband.

Here are a few other films in which they appear together:

Vogliamo i colonnelli (1973) as party guests

Metti... che ti rompo il muso (1973) as café guests

She's a woman who runs a seemingly respectable establishment, but it's really a type of brothel where old men come to have sex with young girls who are pimped out by their mothers!


Also in the crazed mondo movie Emanuelle e le porno notti (1978) as one of the horny old women who hump up and down on dildo chairs(!) while watching a muscleman pose for them! :o

Not surprisingly, Lella also shows up in a few fotoromanzi and she has quite a nice, though uncredited, role as a fake medium called Signora Eufemia in Le avventure di Ray Kolman N. 26: "Un arcano tremore di stelle" (December 1971)
Ray Kolman 26 - Lella Cattaneo1.jpg

Also a little role for Lella in "Valzer per una notte", a short fotoromanzo published in Grand Hotel N. 52 in December 1985. This time she's a fortune teller
