Elke Sommer Autograph on b/w photoElke Sommer Autograph on b/w photo

7 x 5 inches b/w photo from the ORF, an Austrian TV sender. Scene from the movie "Per Salto Mord", with David Janssen and Elke Sommer, Sommer autograph at front. Clean, fine condition.

Elke Sommer, daughter of a Lutheran minister, attended college in Germany, originally planning to be a diplomatic translator. She started a modeling career, which led to her German movie debut in Das Totenschiff (1959). Femmine di Lusso (1959) followed and, in the process, Sommer was able to master yet another language. Along with several other European actresses, Sommer received her first international break in The Victors (1963); the fact that she shot her scenes twice -- once in the nude -- was good for plenty of press coverage in the U.S.

A film with Paul Newman in The Prize (1963) and Peter Seller in A Shot in the Dark (1964) followed., Sommer got married to the writer Joe Hyams. Her subsequent film career had ups and downs but Sommer, now fluently speaking 7 languages, remained popular on the international show business scene, especially TV talk shows. Elke Sommer's latest appearances included a guest shot in the American TV series St. Elsewhere and a supporting part in the 1992 film Severed Ties.
