Buon Compleanno Claudia Cardinale!

One of the great beauties and actors in all of cinema turns seventy years old today, so warm wishes to Claudia Cardinale who still projects more charm, vitality and intelligence than most could even dream of.
Still active in film, Claudia has been gracing screens now for forty years and in everything from her early Italian productions with directors ranging from Mario Monicelli to Luchino Visconti to her later and sometimes surprising work in films varying from hysterical comedies like Don't Make Waves to the unforgettable drama of Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West to her more recent work with Claude LeLouch, there has simply never been anyone else like Claudia Cardinale.


If time permits, I am going to be posting a photographic tribute to some of Claudia's films in the seventies over at Harry Moseby Confidential today. In the meantime, here are a few favorite shots of her for Moon In The Gutter readers.

Jeremy, thanks for the link. Love your site! Big Sylvia Kriste fan here! I hope you do a piece on Olivia Pascal of 'Vanessa' fame. There are not many photos of her on the net though. Info on the film can be found at Severin-films.com Keep up the great work! (Loved your piece on 'Jackie Brown' btw)

Not to mention the fact that this amazing actress inspired the name of my beautiful 19-month-old daughter, Claudia!

Happy Belated Birthday to Claudia. She's one of my favorites. She's been in so many wonderful films. I have enjoyed her in everything from Don't Make Waves to Once Upon A Time In The West. I've always found her stunningly gorgeous. She's quite a talent.
