Raffaella Carrà is famous enough today to be known in many countries as simply la Carrà, and in Latin America as merely Raffaella. The above photo shows her pre-superstardom, when she was an up-and-coming actress and singer in her native Italy. Back then she was big in sword & sandal epics, among them 1961’s Atlas Against the Cyclops, and 1962’s Ulysses Against Hercules and Caesar the Conqueror. The photo comes from a British magazine called King and it dates from 1968

Above we have the cover and a few interior pages from an October 1950 issue of Neue Wiener Melange, which is a German celeb and erotic magazine that takes its name from the phrase “Viennese blend”, a type of coffee with milk. We have to admit, the contents are a bit stimulating. You get some deft art, some demure studio nudes, and Austrian actress Vera Molnar, who starred in 1951’s A Tale of Five Cities and 1954’s Ulysses, the latter with Kirk Douglas. We have another of these and if we don’t have a lazy day we’ll scan the whole thing and post it.
