Meet Gina Paluzzi! The Mysterious Disappearance Of A Sex Kitten!
As many of you know, my “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” highlights the careers of many of our greatest Cult Movie Queens…Actresses and Models who entertained us in the most raucous decades of cinema ever!
My latest “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” shares some of the only pictures I could find of an Actress who only has two screen credits, but WOW! She really made the most of them!
Meet Gina Paluzzi!
You probably don’t know her – in fact, one of my most reliable online entertainment databases doesn’t either!
Here’s what that online site says:
“Gina Paluzzi started her career as a model and ventured into the showbiz industry.”
OK, that’s fair enough – although I could only find a single picture of this “Model.”
And a microscopic picture it was at that!
Now, back to that bio:
Here is the only other line that is written about her career:
“She is one of the popular actresses in the world of cinema.”
In fact, Gina Paluzzi is one of the LEAST KNOWN Actresses on the database – one of the many who show up in exploitation films briefly before disappearing forever!
How tough is it to find a picture of her? Well, this showed up when I tried to find her:
Yes, it’s a shot of Gina’s chest!
Luckily, I found a few other hints about her life, so let’s take a look at her very short and sweet career!
Gina’s first onscreen role was uncredited, in the 1970 sexploitation film “The Booby Trap.”
And when I say she “showed up”, did she ever!
When obscure films like these end up on various home video releases, they are usually released without any extras for useful information about the cast – and that’s the case with Gina.
In fact, she only shows up in one more film – but what a role it was!
Gina is best known for her VERY NUDE appearance in the 1972 “hicksploitation” classic “The Pigkeeper’s Daughter!”
Here’s the trailer – just click through to see:
I own this movie thanks to Something Weird Video, who has done a great job rescuing drive-in films like this from obscurity.
This is a slice of classic cult cinema to be sure!
Here’s the plot: Moonbeam Swyner, the pig keeper’s curvaceous daughter, is still waiting for her Prince Charming. Instead, she will have to make do with a travelling perfume and lingerie salesman. Could he be “the One?”
Well, the film is about to answer that question for you in graphic detail!
As you should expect, that flimsy plot is designed to allow the entire cast to take their clothes off early and often, including this riveting shot of Gina!
Yes, Gina Paluzzi is on full display in the film, especially in this scene in the living room when she eagerly seduces a “hucklefuck!”
In fact, if you want to see lots and lots of Gina, then just searching out this film will give you all you want and more!
This was a very popular grindhouse and drive-in movie for its time, and it should have catapulted its stars to even bigger opportunities….
But for Gina Paluzzi, that was it!
This very provocative Actress had no more credits of any kind!
I searched for her in a number of different way, managing finally to discover this black ‘n’ white photo that seemed to be part of a men’s magazine photo spread:
The Disappearance Of Gina Paluzzi…
So what happened to Gina? How did she go from a prominent role in “Pigkeeper” to obscurity?
Perhaps she left the business to get married as many of them did, or perhaps this line of work wasn’t lucrative enough to make a career out of – but she should have showed up in more of these films, which were in heavy production at the time.
Whatever the reason, there is NOTHING online about her past or present.
If anyone knows what happened to Gina, leave us a comment and let us know! As it was, she left us with a classic slice of sexploitation which is readily available on DVD, so look for it!
By the way, Gina co-starred with one of my favorite Cult Movie Queens in “The Pigkeeper’s Daughter”:
That’s right, Peggy Church also starred in the film, and she had a terrific career beyond that:
Church starred ins one great cult films…so why did Peggy vanish as well?
