Druetti, Emma

Emma Druetti in La moglie è uguale per tutti (1955)
Madame De Sade.jpg

This elegant older lady pops up very frequently in 1950s films, typically in scenes featuring parties, nightclubs, casinos etc, nearly always uncredited. One of her largest and most notable parts is in Non perdiamo la testa (1959), where she plays one of Franca Valeri's friends.

She was identified in December 2020 thanks to her credited roles in Ladri di biciclette (1948) and Giovanne dalle Bande Nere (1956), plus a few additional credits at ANICA. Prior to being identified, she was referred to under the nickname "Madame De Sade" due to her somewhat sadistic-looking smile.
