Now THIS Is Why I Love Foreign Films!
One of the great pleasures in doing my “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown” is that I am discovering a lot of great Cult Movie Queens from around the world, including this Italian beauty!
Debora Caprioglio’s Fascinating Career!
If you don’t know Debora, she’s had an incredible career, including movies with Italian Softcore King Tinto Brass and legendary cinematic wild man Klaus Kinski as well!
Debora Caprioglio was born in 1968 in Venice, Italy. When she was twenty years old, she made a bold movie debut, and it was off to the races – and off with the clothes from there!
“Grandi Cacciatori” from 1988 starred wildly eccentric Actor Kalus Kinski, who Debora was engaged to at the time…they went on to make another movie together the following year:
“Paganini” is a 1989 biographical film written, directed by and starring Klaus Kinski. The story is based on the life and career of composer and virtuoso violinist Niccolò Paganini.
It was Kinski’s directorial debut, and also his final film before his death in 1991.
Because of their relationship at the time, Caprioglio was credited in the film as Debora Kinski…
However, it was her next film the cemented Debora’s reputation as Italy’s biggest sex kitten – and it was all due to the Italian Sex Maestro, Director Tinto Brass:
This 1991 film lovingly captured Debora’s beauty – and what a breakout role!
Debora stars as a young country girl who moves to town and works in a brothel in order to help her fiance get the money to start his own business. “Paprika” is the name given to her by the madam.
Here is the trailer:
This was a bold film, and Debora put herself out there – all the way!
The film was one of Brass’s biggest hits, and got terrific reviews as well…
Debora followed up with the film “Saint Tropez, Saint Tropez”, then “Spiando Marina”, which was retitled this way:
Caprioglio appeared in a number of sex comedies and dramas, and of course thrillers like this one, which included an erotic interlude on a bed with a snake…
She appeared in “The Smile of the Fox” in 1992, “With Closed Eyes” in 1994, and “Love Story with Cramps” the following year.
For the next two decades, Debora appeared in a wide range of films and television shows in Italy…a long and successful career!
In 2007, she took part in the Italian version of the reality show “Celebrity Survivor”.
Debora Caprioglio is certainly one of Italy’s most iconic sex kittens, and continues to work today…
