PEPLUM Babe of the Month: Raffaella Carrà


To close the month of March, here's Raffaella Carrà for PEPLUM Babe of the Month.

Even though Raffaella made just a handful of PEPLUM films fans of the genre easily recognize her for her beauty and vulnerable qualities. Never a leading actress in the genre, more in supporting roles, she nonetheless left an impact on the genre. IMO, her best role is ULYSSES AGAINST HERCULES, the doomed maiden trapped in King Lagos' crazed world. Her brief scenes are memorable (above).

In Italy and other European countries Raffaella is a media personality, famous for TV roles, singing and tv appearances.

The name is familiar, maybe from European pop or Eurovision. Certainly a Eurobabe to remember ...
