Here’s another underrated scene that Penman is restoring to the front burner:
A 4K look is quite revealing. When she bent over, she did not get her cheeks far enough apart to offer a Full Heche, but you may find something even more interesting! (Or she may be wearing a modesty patch.) Good on ya, ScarJo!
And then there was this …
I don’t believe I have ever seen Joanne naked before, and here she is, with everything exposed in broad daylight.
This is quite a good find that I saw on Phun today. I checked and there were no nude images of Joanne in my back issues. I double-checked with Mr. Skin to see what Joanne flesh he might have unearthed. Again the ol’ ziparoo. The only images I found in my archives were some OZ captures from Whoops Apocalypse (1987), and Señor Piel had pretty much the same thing. They’re sexy, but there’s no nudity:
I didn’t recognize her. I re-read the article to make sure it was about the same woman.

There are also some good booty shots in the gallery

Gloria did seven or eight topless scenes in this film. That sounds impressive, but your enthusiasm may be dampened by the fact that toplessness was her absolute nudity limit. She did no lower body nudity, front or rear.
That limitation is more than offset by other factors:
(1) This filming took place immediately after she was declared Miss Teenage Italy, which means she was a beautiful teenager.
(2) She went on to become a Eurocrap legend in the following years.
(3) La Ragazzina was the screen debut of this future legend.
Also naked in La Ragazzina: Colette Descombes, who did do full frontal and rear nudity.
Gloria Guida did do lower-body nudity soon after this film, although shots of her butt are relatively rare.
Blue Jeans (1975)
La Liceale (1975)
You will probably notice how tightly bunched those films are chronologivally. She churned them out furiously while still in her teens and early 20s. In just the six years from 1974 to 1979, she appeared in 24 films.
Per IMDb, she pretty much stopped making films after 1982, when she was still only 27. She later dropped completely out of sight for some twenty years (1990-2009) in order to raise a family. She began her comeback in two episodes of an Italian TV series in 2010, when she was in her late 50s. Although she is now in her 70s, she is still working regularly today, not as an actress, but as a presenter or reality show participant.
If you want to learn more about her, the best source I found was Italian Wikipedia. The translation software doesn’t work as well from Italian as it does from some other languages, so it takes some concentration to read her biography, but the info is fairly complete.

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!!
