A gorgeous B-Movie actress with dark, exotic features, Acquanetta
had a brief fling with fame in the early 40's, starring in Captive Wild Women in 1943, and it's sequel Jungle
Woman the following year. However, meatier parts never materialized and by the 50's, her career was

A strikingly attractive actress, with a million dollar smile, Julie
first made a name for herself in Westerns, starring in over a dozen within the first four years of her film career.
Still, she is probably remembered most for her turn as the feminine bait used to capture the amphibious half-man half-fish
monster in the 1954 horror classic, The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Voluptuous Marisa Allasio was one of several Italian actresses
who appeared on the horizon after the success of Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida. Unfortunately, this gorgeous
blonde's appeal never quite crossed over the Atlantic to the U.S. One of her more memorable screen moments came
in the 1958 film The Seven Hills of Rome which starred her opposite opera great Mario Lanza.

Ay Caliente! This curvaceous Cuban born actress began as a
dancer, before making her mark in several 60's Italian "Sword and Sandal" flicks. Although usually low-budget,
these films are worth watching just to see sexy Chelo's exotic dance numbers, such as the one she performs in 1962's Son
of Samson. Many of her fans still remember her small role in the Clint Eastwood classic, The
Good, The Bad and the Ugly.

A runner-up to the 1970 Miss America crown, gorgeous Kathrine made
the expected move to Hollywood and a hopeful movie career. Unfortunately for this ex-beauty queen, what followed was
a string of really bad Z-Grade movies such as Chrome and Hot Leather in 1971 and The Thing with Two Heads
the following year. Moving on from Hollywood, Kathrine would find her niche outside of tinsel town creating a successful
line of artistic jewelry and accessories which she still markets today.

This drop-dead gorgeous, Austrian actress heated up just about any
film she appeared in. Senta's most memorable film moments came as an Israeli revolutionary in 1966's Cast A Giant
Shadow, and as a sexy femme fatale in Dean Martin's James Bond spoof The Ambushers the following year.
She also looks very fetching in the ridiculous Italian film When Women Had Tails in 1970.

This sexy fair-skinned African American actress enjoyed a brief
Hollywood career during the 70's "Blaxploitation" period. However, anyone seeing her in the 1974 cult classic
Sugar Hill, as a voluptuous Voodoo priestess, would wholeheartedly agree that Hollywood shelved this bewitching
beauty far too soon. She had a reoccuring role in the hit 70's cop show Starsky and Hutch.
