Now, I do consider Gina Lolabrigida to be a pretty good actor, or at least the movies that she was in were good ones. I can't say the same for one of her contemporaries, such as Brigitte Bardot. As pretty as she was, she didn't hold a candle to GL. The Movies The Law and A Very Private Affair are good examples of this. Gina's The Law was a very good movie, one that was an interesting character(s) study of life in a particular Italian small town and in Brigitte's Affair, well, not so much. They both did have the talents of one Marcello Mastroianni and one can't go wrong with him in a flick, but even he couldn't save the latter for me.
Anyway, Lolabrigida was a fire cracker, that's for sure and maybe more than just a pretty face and hourglass figure. And for that, she earns a spot in my Hall of Fame.
