Above, an excellent noir style shot of Italian actress Marina Berti, née Elena Maureen Bertolini, who had a very long cinematic career, but acting mostly in supporting roles. This photo is a promo for the 1950 drama Deported, which also starred Märta Torén. Berti died in Rome ten years ago this week.

Above, an eye-opening photo of German actress Solvi Stubing, one of the great sex symbols of Italian cinema. Her film career began in 1964, and included appearances in Nude per l'assassino, aka Strip Nude for Your Killer, Le deportate della sezione speciale SS, aka Deported Women of the SS Special Edition, and Le amazzoni, aka Battle of the Amazons (we wrote about that one here). This photo is from the French magazine Sexyrama, 1970.
