Rosalba Neri

Rosalba Neri in La figlia di Frankenstein (1971)

Rosalba Neri is a C.S.C. actress who graduated from Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in 1959. She was active in Italian films from the late 50's until the mid-70's. Thanks largely to her "hot" appearances in a number of high-profile cult and exploitation films, today she is certainly one of the best known actresses to have received the C.S.C. credit in her films.

Rosalba was born on June 19th 1939 in Forli, Italy. Like a number of other actresses, she first came to acting via winning beauty contests, using it as a springboard to follow her dreams. Her film debut came in 1958 and the following year she graduted from Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, quickly becoming one of their most in demand graduates.

Her best early roles were in peplum and historical productions and desert adventures where she played a succession of bitches and evil queens, usually getting second female lead billing below the duller heroines. She worked steadily through the cycles of eurospies and spaghetti westerns, then, in 1969, she turned to "hot" roles in adult-oriented exploitation fare, gialli and horror films. These roles kept her busy through the next few years, but by 1973-4 her roles were becoming fewer and parts much smaller.

In 1973 she married Harry Cushing, who was her producer on La figlia di Frankenstein and L'amante del demonio, his only 2 known credits. In an interview she states that she retired from acting due to a combination of her marriage and because she was unhappy with the lack of variety in the roles she was being offered. Rosalba still turns up from time to time in video interviews found as extras on DVD and blu-ray releases of her films.

She is still living at the time of writing. Rosalba's presence in a number of high-profile cult films ensures that she is remembered today where a lot of her contemporaries are not.

Rosalba's biographical details are repeated by many sources and many are confirmed in a video interview in which she discusses her life and career (see Page 10).

Since she is fairly well known compared to our other C.S.C. actresses I think it is unlikely there will be much in the way of undocumented roles to be found for her, but I have been proved wrong in the past and will be very happy if I am again.

  • Half hour video interview (2004) an extra on 2004 release of La bestia uccide a sangue freddo

More Rosalba!
There are very few titles for Rosalba that I was unable to find.
  • Il relitto (1961) IMDb as Girl at the night club
No Neri!
Every actor has to have at least one credit online where they do not appear.
  • Le voci bianche (1964) IMDb with no role, Rosalba is not credited and does not appear

    IMDb also has a number of film credits for the similarly-monikered singer Rosalina Neri mis-credited on Rosalba's page.
  • I pinguini ci guardano (1956)
  • Vivendo cantando... che male ti fò? (1957)
  • Valeria ragazza poco seria (1958)

Esther and the King (1960) credited, as Keresh.

Looking gorgeous in an eye-catching early bad-girl role opposite Joan Collins that surprisingly failed to lead to bigger things.

Ercole al centro della Terra (1961) credited, but does not appear.

Despite what various people and websites would try and have you believe, Rosalba does NOT appear in this film, another credit only.

Giallo club - Invito al poliziesco (1961) TV series, season 4, episode 1: "La morte ha due volti", credited in the listing in Radiocorriere TV guide, as Lana.

Rosalba is also credited in Radiocorriere TV listing for the later episode "Qualcuno ha tradito" (season 4, episode 4), where she is listed as playing Lana Nevada, which could be the same character that she plays in "La morte ha due volti".
