Alida Valli, 1947. She was “discovered” by David O. Selznick - she’d been working in Italian films since 1935 - who called her “the most beautiful woman in the world” and who thought she could be the new Ingrid Bergman. She starred in several successful English language films (notably, The Paradine Case, The Miracle of the Bells and The Third Man) before returning to her native Italy. Her last film appearance was in 2002; she died four years later.
