Cardinale that is. I fell in love with Claudia when I first saw her in Once Upon A Time In The West in college. She was born to Italian-Tunisian parents in 1938 in Tunis, but only learned to speak Italian as a teenager. I've always thought of her as the Italian Brigitte Bardot (I actually think she's lovelier than Brigitte. I suppose she's mostly known for 8 1/2, Fitzcarraldo and Once Upon A Time in the West. I haven't seen that many of her films and I want to change that. Here are some photos of the lovely lady. Enjoy!
