Alida Valli

I watched the end of the “The Third Man” this morning before the World Cup match between Brazil and Colombia.

I was drawn to an actress I’d never heard of before who looked and sounded just like a young Judi Dench.

Alida Valli was an italian actress who gave Hollywood a try – and featured as the murder suspect in The Paradine Case by Alfred Hitchcock – but the expectations placed on her of being the next Ingrid Bergman failed to materialise.

At one stage in her career, she was touted as the most beautiful woman in the world, and in the photos below, you can see why.
