Francesca Braggiotti as Queen Sophonisba in SCIPIO AFRICANUS: THE DEFEAT OF HANNIBAL

I watched this amazing movie in its entirety last night and was mesmerized by Francesca. I didn't include her in my WHO'S THE QUEEN OF PEPLUM CINEMA compilation and that's a huge oversight as she's a contender for sure.

Interesting trivia: according to IMDb, Francesca was a ballet dancer (it shows in the film, she's incredibly graceful) and she dubbed Greta Garbo's voice in Italian.
