Edwige Fenech is an Italian babe who was born in Bône, Constantine, which sounds like a fitting place for an erotic film star to hail from. Fans of vintage smut and Italian cinema may recognize her, as will modern horror fans. Her films are usually in her native tongue, though she's been in cult flicks like Hostel: Part II. She's well known in Italy for her giallo films, the Italian equivalent of our beloved crime thrillers. The gorgeous brunette was winning beauty contests as a teen, and that beauty would later help her become a star of a different type of picture entirely.
In the late '60s, Edwige began starring in movies like Sexy Susan Sins Again and Ubalda, All Naked and Warm, the latter also featuring Karin Schubert. These flicks fall under the category of commedia sexy all'italiana, which means "sex comedy Italian style". Though they're softcore by today's standards, they pushed the envelope of what was acceptable at the time. There were plenty of laughs, and also lots of nudity and sex. Edwige was an immediate star of the genre, working her 34C-23-34 body to the delight of viewers.
Though it's been years since Edwige Fenech last filmed a dirty movie, she's still enjoying mainstream movie success today. She often pops up on celebrity porn sites, along with other Italian starlets like Sara Tommasi, who also achieved both mainstream and XXX success. Edwige's movies are the definition of classic erotica, so film buffs should study up right now.
