Old Lady who smells a niff

Post by Johan Melle » 01/05/2019, 14:16

??? in Non perdiamo la testa (1959)

Old Lady Who Smells A Fart.jpg

Here's a generica I've started to notice in various 1950s and 60s films. Among her roles, the most notable one is in Non perdiamo la testa (1959), where has a fairly large part as one of Franca Valeri's friends, but sadly without being credited.

She's usually seen wearing a hat and very often she makes a kind of grimace with her face, looking as if she's smelling a bad smell, and for this reason I have given her the nickname "Old Lady who smells a niff".
