Celebrating Sex Kitten Anna Falchi!
One of the most enjoyable aspects of my “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown” is discovering a Cult Movie Queen who was not on my radar for any number of reasons…that sums up Anna Falchi in a nutshell!
Anna Falchi was born on April 22, 1972 in Tampere, Finland as Anna Kristiina Palomaki. She moved to Italy at a young age made her debut at the age of ten – in a TV commercial for an Italian bank, directed by legendary Filmmaker Federico Fellini!
Anna Falchi was a big star in Italy, and throughout Europe, but if a few exceptions, her films were widely distributed in the US – but one in particular included a scene that lives on today!
Anna Falchi had more than 30 screen credits, but one caught my attention, thanks to one of my social media friends…
That friend shared a picture of Falchi in her mesmerizing lead role in the film “Dellamorte Dellamore” – here’s the original poster with Falchi prominent displayed:
However, when this was released in the U.S. in 1994, it not only had a new title, “Cemetery Man”, but a new image on the poster as well:
Rupert Everett had some heat at the time for his roles in romantic comedies like “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” but this wasn’t a comedy at all – instead, he starred as a cemetery man who must kill the dead a second time when they become zombies.
While Everett was popular at the time, the image that was shared on Facebook recently wasn’t him at all, of course, it was her!
As you can see, it was a very revealing performance by Falchi, and this is the picture, shared on Facebook, that brought her to my attention originally.
Check out the trailer:
This film featured a lot of Falchi nude – and while the film was a cult hit, it didn’t increase her awareness in the US…
Most of her films never really played in the states – here are some of the films that were hits in Europe:
She was hugely popular in Italy, and was a popular guest on many TV shows at the time as well, which led to one of her more controversial appearances:
In 2001, Falchi was a guest on the Italian late night show Satyricon, during which she satirized one of the appearances of Madonna on Late Show with David Letterman during which Madonna jokingly teased Letterman for refusing to smell her panties.
On that Italian TV show, Falchi actually took off her red panties on stage, and the host, Daniele Luttazzi went all the way to smell them, which caused a scandal in Italy at the time!
Falchi had a great career, and even if we didn’t get to appreciate her at the time, some of these performances now exist on streaming services and DVD’s…
French Actress Marlene Appelt also had a huge career in Europe, but never broke big in the US – you can see all of her revealing work by clicking on my story here:
Cult Movie Queen Joelle Coeur also made some wild films in Europe in the early 70’s as well, then she also disappeared!
