Dorian Gray (in "Totò, Peppino e... la malafemmina," 1956)

Biography

Italian actress, who made her stage debut in 1950, and quickly became a known and acclaimed actress. However, after five years she left the world of the theater and devoted herself to cinema.

The role she played most often in films was that of a seductive sex kitten; most famously, she played the titular 'bad girl' in "Totò, Peppino e la malafemmina," considered one of the absolute classics of Italian comedy. However, she also had a chance to demonstrate her dramatic talents in Michelangelo Antonioni's "Il grido," to great critical acclaim. In 1957, at the peak of her popularity, she appeared in "The Nights of Cabiria" by Federico Fellini.

Her career ended by choice soon thereafter. In 1965, awaiting the birth of her son, she retired from acting and never made another public appearance.

On 15 February 2011, Gray committed suicide by gunshot at her home in Torcegno.
