Chi era lei?

08 Feb

Per her autobiography, Ectasy and Me, Hedy Lamarr recalls her attendance at one of Errol’s legendary Mulholland pool parties:

“I plead guilty of joining Errol and one of his pals one warm Sunday afternoon in an upstairs room watching down through a trick ceiling while a famous, big-bosomed Italian movie star undressed to go swimming. The view was so clear it was almost as if we were in the same room as her. When she carefully rubbed the red marks her bra had left, the boys had a big laugh – though it was topped when she sniffed her underarms and then  dabbed perfume there.”

Who do YOU believe this big-bosomed bathing beauty was? Below are some intriguing possibilities, in order of birth and, in my opinion, likelihood:

— Tim

    I lean towards La Lollo, Bigeyes Tim, sinca La Loren hit Hollywood as late in ´58 with “Houseboat” and alongside another gent called Cary Grant. or was it maybe Lili Munster sneaking in from behind taking first prize in this bikini bottom contest!?

      Excellent points, hooterheinz. I believe you’re right, Howie Hughes flew Lolla over to Hollyhood circa ’50, and the rest is history.

      P.S. I think you should reconsider flinging with Gina. Now that she’s ninety, she may be up for older men. Just be sure to get it in writing.

        Even Errol was to old for her, Preacherman Tim, but that was 65 years ago. Some sources say Flynn called her Lollofrigida because of her cold demeanor towards him, but all in all they got along just fine. The pic probably shows an reenactment of the sniffling pit stop at Mulholland Farm only this time in front and not behind the mirror. Enjoy!

      Well, tassie devil, being that big-busted Shelly regularly romed the hoods and streets of Brooklyn for many years, she surely had some Italian in her. I suspect, however, that Hedy was spying on one of the legendary big-bosomed, Italian-born stars of post WWII Italian Cinema, including truly dramatic beauties, like Gina and Sophia, not including ones like Fellini-favorite Maria Antonietta Beluzzi, though she measures up in a couple of ways. I think we should rule out Jayne Minefield, too.……
