Novak, Ivana

Ivana Novak in La terrificante notte del Demonio (1971).

Ivana Gibilisco, alias Ivana Novak (like Kim Novak), begins to appear on the silver screen in the Sixties with the comedies of Franco & Ciccio, passes through the costume drama, than went to horror flick, and ended up acting in the vein of the "poliziotteschi".

She often played small but meaningful roles, in which her sensual presence always stood out.

Retired completely from the entertainment world in the late seventies, she had a daughter, Amanda. In the 2010s she worked in a boutique in Rome.

In La polizia è sconfitta (1977) she plays again the part of an undercover policewoman and has an exchange of slaps with Nello Pazzafini. This is probably her last known role.
