There are not that many photos of Marisa Mell with behind the scenes motives when preparing for a new scene in a movie, except maybe for the film "Danger: Diabolik!" for which there are quite a few behind the scenes photos available even with it's director Mario Bava who hated being photographed. This photo shows Marisa Mell preparing for a scene from the comedy movie "Bella, ricca, lieve difetto fisico cerca anima gemella" from 1973 where she plays a transvestite trying to seduce a con man who lures desperate housewives into marrying him so he can later robe them. Playing a transvestite, her hair is being prepared by a female hairdresser to look rather flat to the head so the attention is being drawn to her masculine looking face indicating that she was born a man. Nevertheless this photo shows once again Marisa Mell at the height of her beauty in the 70's.
