Italian film star Claudia Cardinale looking bored at an event in 1963.
Claudia Cardinale took Europe by a storm, and soon the United States… and the rest of the world. The Italian film actress and sex symbol appeared in some of the most acclaimed European films of the 1960s and 1970s. She was blessed with more than just beauty, she had real talent as can be seen in her performances in films such as Girl with a Suitcase (1961), The Leopard (1963), and Federico Fellini's 8½ (1963). Cardinale became known in the United States and Britain following her role in The Pink Panther. Then she began appearing in Hollywood films like Blindfold (1965) with Rock Hudson, The Professionals (1966), and the epic Western Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). She feared becoming a cliché and grew tired of Hollywood so she returned to Italian and French cinema.
