Colette Descombes in La Ragazzina (1974)

AKA “Monika”

In yesterday’s post about Pier Angeli in “Addio, Alexandra,” I mentioned that Pier’s co-star, Collete Descombes, had done a full-frontal outdoor skinny-dipping scene in La Ragazzina.

Here it is.

Unlike the disc for “Addio, Alexandra,” which reveals a faded print of a terrible film, the DVD for La Ragazzina is actually worth watching if 1970s Eurocrap interests you. The film is a typical “B” offering from Italy in that period: sleazy guys wearing dark sunglasses and mustaches; innocent young girls; jaded rich women; lots of close-ups of eyes; an unusual musical score; overuse of the zoom lens. But at least the plot is comprehensible and some of the dialogue, at least in translation, has a little touch of wit. The DVD images are reasonably sharp, and the colors are quite vivid for a 50-year-old film.

As for Colette, she seems to have disappeared from the film industry in 1978 at age 35, and neither IMDb nor Wikipedia seems to know what happened to her.

In addition to the two films mentioned above, she had a brief nude scene in the 1969 Carroll Baker giallo, “Orgasmo.” Those are her only three nude performances that I know of, but I would not be surprised if there are more, given the nature of European “B” movies in that era.

The actual star of this film is Eurocrap legend Gloria Guida – in her film debut at 18 or 19!!

  1. Outstanding – all you need for a movie is a camera, a girl, no clothes, a pool & some suntan lotion
