Giorgia Moll

Giorgia Moll is one of the many beauties with whom the Italian cinema teemed in the 1950s and 1960s. Her harmonious face, her perfect brown hair and her dream measurements did not escape the talent scouts of the time and she was only seventeen when she was hired for her first film Non scherzare con le donne (1955). Her career is undistinguished on the whole but two of her roles stand out: Phuong, Audie Murphy’s Vietnamese love interest in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s The Quiet American (1958), filmed in Rome in 1957; and Francesca Vanini, the dogsbody secretary of authoritarian film producer Jack Palance in Jean-Luc Godard’s Contempt (1963). During this period, Giorgia Moll was also a popular singer. After 1970, her appearances became sporadic and she retired for good in 1985. She is now a photographer.
