??? in Indagine su un delitto perfetto (1978)

Here is another familiar face in many Italian films from the 1970s. I've nick-named her "Old Countess" because she has a somewhat regal appearance and always seems to be playing noblewomen of high society women - like the picture above from Indagine su un delitto perfetto, where she plays one of Alida Valli's friends. I hope we can find out who she is!

Great news i have identify her !

Yesterday while watching for new generici, i look at a imdb list for the movie Gidget goes ro Rome (1963) among the uncredited names there was a woman called lean party guest, so when i saw the movie i recognize that the lean woman was our generica !
So in order to see if she was really her i search for the credited roles of that actress, and i check on Mercoledi delle ceneri (1973) where she is credited and just look who is here in a speaking role, present in many scenes:

Yes our old countess !!!
So let me introduced you Princess Irina Wassilchikoff

At the end Johan was very right in calling her countess, because our generica is really a noblewoman !
But by ready, because lately prior her identification i have found irina everywhere ! so many many roles to come !

Hello Johan and welcome back to the site as first thing !
I have read an article about Ben-Hur in wich she plays a noblewoman in ancient rome, and it is written that the director uses several real nobleman and noblewoman to play generici roles in the party scene, and there she is called as princess Irina etc.
i will search again for the article !
