Alida Valli, the stunning Italian actress who starred in both Italian- and English-language films, most notably Michelangelo Antonioni’s Il Grido, Luchino Visconti’s Senso, Dario Argento’s Suspiria, Carol Reed’s The Third Man, and Alfred Hitchcock’s The Paradine Case, died Saturday in Rome. She was 84. The David O Selznick discovery, pitched as The Next Garbo, made over 100 films in a career that spanned 60 years – and included guest-star roles on Combat! and Dr Kildare, go figure. Among her awards was a Lifetime Achievement Golden Lion at the Venice film festival in 1997.
