Nobody's saying that Madonna isn't sexy, but she had a big bikini top to fill in her recent remake of Swept Away (2002). Specifically, she had to match Mariangela Melato's perfect presence in the original Swept Away (1974)--including a beach sex scene that's a legend in European cinema. Of course, Mariangela went on to even greater glories, with guys buffing their boners to her sizzling topless woman-on-top antic in Attenti al buffone (1976). Her films became a little less classic in the '80s, but Mariangela never quit being an icon of Italian sexuality--as seen by her orgasmic emoting in Notte d'estate con profilo greco, occhi a mandorla e odore di basilico (1987).
