Identifying the Amazons!

Post by PeplumParadise » 12/07/2020, 20:49

La regina delle Amazzoni (1962) credits 32 actresses as playing Amazons. Of those less than a quarter are currently identified. Let's see if we can improve on that and maybe even find some new friends in the process.

The 4 High Priestesses. Since we now have topics for 3 of the 4 I think we can safely say they are all identified.

Even though most of these actresses have no other known roles it may still be possible that some of them may have been models, beauty contest winners or appeared in fotoromanzi, and therefore could still be identified.

Uncredited Amazons

In addition to the credited actresses there are some quite high profile names who pop up in uncredited roles. Given that Lorella De Luca went for years before being identified, then it is quite possible there could be one or two more "name" actresses hidden away amongst the unidentified.

The unidentified Amazons with the largest roles.

These ones should probably be credited - but then again...

This Frances Dean, apparently an English actress, in the fotoromanzo "L'amore ha due volti" (Cine Illustrato, 1960). She's clearly unknown number 9

This is Marinella Gennuso (on the left) in the TV mini series Peppino Girella (1963)
Peppino Girella - Marinella Gennuso.jpg

I'm thinking she could possibly be unknown 3. For more comparison, it should be noted that in addition to the titles listed on her IMDb page, Marinella is also credited in another peplum: Giulio Cesare contro i pirati (1962). So that's one to check.

Also, Unknown 7 is Anna Maria Surdo. I don't have any pics to post right at this moment, but I know very well what she looks like from numerous fotoromanzi.
