Dorian Gray 1936 - 2011

Dorian Gray, born Maria Luisa Mangini, died this year, back in February. She took her own life. Dorian appeared in a couple of PEPLUM films, including COLOSSUS & THE AMAZONS (above) and THE QUEEN OF SHEBA, as the handmaiden Ati (below). Dorian was eventually famous for her long blond hair so even if I saw QUEEN OF SHEBA many times, I never realized that Ati was her. RIP.

I'll always remember her as Virginia, owner of a gas station in the desolate region around the Po, her desperate love affair with Steve Cochran, who's just waiting to leave on another pointless journey. Unforgettable Dorian.
