Actress. She appeared in roughly three dozen Italian film features over a 15 year career. A native of Northern Italy, she was born Maria Luisa Mangini and left few clues about her early life and none to the Oscar Wilde allusion that provided her rather bizarre screen name. She broke into show business with a 1950 stage revue entitled "Votate per Venere" and made her silver screen bow the next year as Gavina in "Vendetta...sarda"; for the next years she was kept busy, her film work increasing after she quit the stage in the mid 1950s. Among her better known movie appearances were "Appointment for Murder" (1951), Ati in 1952's "The Queen of Sheba", Jessy in Federico Fellini's 1957 drama "Nights of Cabiria", Ornella in 1958's "Mogli pericolose" which won her a Silver Ribbon Award, Antiope in the 1960 fantasy "Colossus and the Amazon Queen", and Dornia in the romantic "Love on the Riviera" (1962). Following her turn as Sadik in 1965's "Thrilling" she dropped from public view and moved to her native region's small town of Torcegno where she committed suicide by gunshot. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
