Claudia Cardinale is an Italian actress born in Tunis, Tunisia. The most notable films she has appeared in include 8½ (1963) and Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). The majority of Cardinale's films have been either of Italian or French origin.
Throughout the 1960s, she appeared in some of the best Italian and European films including Luchino Visconti's Il Gattopardo (The Leopard, 1963) and Rocco e i suoi fratelli (1960), Philippe de Broca's Cartouche (1963), Federico Fellini's 8½ (1963), and Sergio Leone's epic Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). Because she lacked fluency in language, her voice—in the early Italian films—was dubbed by someone else. Not until 8½ was she allowed to dub her own dialogue.
Because Cardinale was not interested in leaving Europe for extended periods of time, she never made a real attempt to break into the American market. The list of her Hollywood films includes The Pink Panther (1963), in which she was dubbed by an American actress; Circus World (1964); Blindfold (1965); and The Professionals (1966), in which she played opposite Lee Marvin and Burt Lancaster.
