35 Gorgeous Photos of Lisa Gastoni in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1935 in Alassio, Liguria, Italian actress Lisa Gastoni moved to England in 1948 with her family. She appeared in various B movies throughout the 1950s, as well as co-starring as Giulia in the Sapphire Films TV series The Four Just Men (1959) for ITV and an episode of Danger Man (1960).


Gastoni returned to Italy in the 1960s, first appearing in sword-and-sandal and swashbuckler films, but eventually gaining the attention of respected directors. The turning point in her film career was her role in Grazie, zia by Salvatore Samperi. This would set the tone for the roles she would play for the next decade; bourgeois women who were seductive yet sexually frustrated, cruel and arrogant yet sad and sympathetic, manipulating the people around them to try and fill the emptiness in their own lives.

Gastoni was named “Best Italian Actress of the Year, 1966” as she received both the Nastro D’Argento Award and the Golden Globe Award from Italy’s Foreign Press Association. After 1979, she retired from acting to focus on painting and writing. In 2005 she returned to the screen with an appearance in the film Cuore Sacro.
