Photo of the Day

Wandisa Guida is Princess Irina in REVENGE OF THE CONQUERED (aka Drakut il vendicatore translation: Drakut the Avenger)

I'm currently working on a Fan Dub of this film. The copy I have in English is simply unwatchable but fortunately the sound is ok. When I watched the terrible copy I didn't realize how beautiful Wandisa was in this film due to the terrible image quality. This screenshot is from the official DVD and she's simply luminous.

Wandisa is a wonderful and expressive actress. During the late 1950s, Wandisa's career was heading towards major Hollywood productions but something happened during the early 60s and her career didn't catch fire as it should have. Her appearances after making this film shows some strain. She's also often saddled with awful wigs (see GLADIATOR OF ROME as example) but here she's fine.
