Laura Antonelli died yesterday, aged 71. She had had some rough times in her personal life around 1990, which was around the time that she retired from films. This is very sad news. She was a fine actress; she could wring out any emotion at any moment, and she held her own against the best of European actors. Don't take my word for it; watch her movies and enjoy. And she was a beauty; she pops up in this blog over and over again, as she should. Ciao bella, Laura.
