Virna Lisi, 1936-2014

So I saw on Wikipedia's obituary list page that Italian actress Virna Lisi died this morning at the age of 78. The name looked familiar, but I couldn't quite place it. It turns out she came to Hollywood in the mid-1960s and made half a dozen or so films, most notably How to Murder Your Wife with Jack Lemmon.

Lisi returned to Italy in the early 1970s and worked steadily thereafter, but that relative lack of a Hollywoof career is probably why I didn't remember her so well, and also why I haven't been able to find an English-language obituary so far. There's on in Italian if you can read that, or one in German.
