Today the actress Claudia Cardinale is 75 and I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing her a happy day.

Talking of ageing, as we were on Saturday, you will see from this BBC interview and from photographs on her website that Miss Cardinale knows how to do it elegantly.

For me, Claudia Cardinale, whose maternal grandparents and father were Sicilian, will always be associated with the island in her role as Angelica in Luchino Visconti's film version of Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's  Il Gattopardo:

HOW old?


For me she will always be as she was in Il Gattopardo.


Must go and watch it again.

Wow! She was so beautiful.

Time marches on with no respect for any one of us! Dammit! ;)

Hello, WY. Yes, hard to believe! Hi, Lee. Yes, she was and I echo that - dammit!
