Stunning photo of Marisa Mell (6)

This photo is taken from Marisa Mell's first Italian movie "Casanova '70" in the mid sixties! Did you know that the director Mario Monicelli, co-writer with Tonino Guerra, was nominated for the Academy Award for writing the best original screenplay in 1965? The Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay is the award for the best script not based upon previously published material. He did not win. The Oscar went that year to Frederic Raphael for his movie script "Darling". Monicelli did win later that year the award as best director at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain together with Marcello Mastroianni as best actor.
Thanks to André Schneider for providing this beautiful picture!

She is a stunner in this movie! Absolutely breathtaking, naive and sophisticated. A pity this was her last "A-movie", though.

That is quite a stunning photo. I've never seen that film before though.
