German actress Eva Renzi on the back-page poster of Bravo of 30 October 1967. She had made it to Hollywood and was filming The Pink Jungle with James Garner and George Kennedy, directed by Delbert Mann.

Renzi, mother of the German actress Anouschka Renzi (mentioned in the caption), caused a controversy in 1983 when she called Germany’s president Karl Carstens “an old Nazi”. Which was true. Renzi died of lung cancer at age 60 in 2005.
