"Venusberg" Premiere!

In the winter of 1962/1963 Marisa Mell became a member of the ensemble cast for the German movie "Venusberg". A story of 7 women who retraited to a holliday house of Marisa Mell's charachter Florentine on a snowed under mountain slope to solve their personal problems while waiting for a man who doesn't show up but gives them more than enough time to do a pre-Sex and the City endless talk among each other! So the entire cast ist made up of only women and the voice-over of a gynecologist is the only male presence in the movie! This photo shows the director Rolf Thiele, writer and director, with 4 of his cast members, celebrating the premiere of the movie in Hamburg (Germany) on April 26th, 1963. They are from left to right: Nicole Badal as Pony, Marisa Mell as Florentine, and ? and ?. Because this is also a lost Marisa Mell movie, I can not at the moment retrace the names of the other actresses. My own archive is inconclusive about their names!

Hmmmm. According to imdb, the other women in the film are Monica Flodquist, Christine Gronberg, Ina Duscha, Claudia Marus and Jane Axell (none of whom I have ever heard of) so presumably two of them are the oher women in the picture. Whoever they are, the one second from the right looks like Beba Loncar.

Hi Baskingshark, thanks for the input! Problem is to put the names on the faces! After 49 years the faces have changed so drastically into their actual state that it is impossible to compare them with their youthful appearance! Another problem is that some of those names as a fashion model only did this picture so there is not much info on the Net or other sources! Hopefully someone reading the blog has more info that would be more than welcome! Time will tell!
