Ride ‘em, cowboy, has a whole different connotation when applied to eighteen-year-old Italian Delia Boccardo in her movie debut, the spaghetti Western Tre pistole contro Cesare (1966), a.k.a. Death Walks in Laredo. She works well as eye candy to divert from the crusty prairie dogs of that film. Americans know her best as the female lead opposite Alan Arkin in Inspector Clouseau (1968). But it’s in The Adventurers (1970) that Delia showed us why candy is dandy but nudity is quicker. It’s adapted from a Harold Robbins bestseller, so you know it’s a bodice ripper, not that Delia is wearing any bodice. Delia only exposed herself once more, in La Mazurka del barone, della santa e del fico fiorone (1975), but she did play Athena in the Italian-produced Hercules (1983), opposite Lou Ferrigno, and then Mary Magdalene in a TV movie called The Day Christ Died (1980). What a goddess.
La mazurka del barone, della santa e del fico fiorone (1975) - as Redheaded prostitute/The 'saint'
