    Hollywood moguls billed her as 'The Next Garbo,' but her American movie was disappointing.
    Her heavy Italian accent limited her appearances in English-speaking films.

    Her ex-husband wrote the classic song 'All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.'
    She went into hiding after refusing to act for the Italian fascists.

    Her career in the entertainment industry encompassed over seven decades.
