BTW, christian, her niece is a chief of a nazi party and
a granddaughter of Mussolini.
It’s indifferent to me, but I’m surprised, how she managed
a career in Hollywood

andrew May 12, 2013 at 6:52 pm

She managed a career in Hollywood since she was a stunning beauty with a powerful producer as husband

doors for her
