Rare Moments In Time Never To Be Forgotten
Written by Lyra Radford
Claudia Cardinale, 1967.
There are just some moments in history that should never be forgotten: The ones that impart the most wisdom, the ones that remind us to express gratitude, make us laugh the hardest, and reflect the deepest...Most of these moments occurred during the groovy era; a time when free love and oh so many new ideals began swirling around. All forms of artistic expression got edgier, some of the biggest pop culture icons in history were at the height of their careers, and the rise of rock ‘n’ roll redefined what it was to make music. Collected here are some groovy moments in time that should never be forgotten.
Claudia Cardinale took Europe (and soon the rest of the world) by a storm. The Italian 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).
It was her role in The Pink Panther opposite David Niven that got her noticed in the US. 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.
