She has now largely retired from acting, and concentrates on photography and business ventures. She died in Los Angeles, California, of lung cancer. Her beauty brought her to the attention of Hollywood, making her first "American" film in 1954, following which she was cast in a series of light romantic comedies considered minor by some. Her near-pathological fear of germs did not interfere with her career. (They had one son, and were divorced in 1971). She was nominated for an Academy Award for the role, and repeated it in nine more films. In 1949 she married a Yugoslavian physician, Milko Skofic. She played Ma Kettle in The Egg and I in 1947 opposite Percy Kilbride as Pa Kettle.
She began appearing in Italian language films. She made six comedies with Wallace Beery in the 1940s. She was born Luigina Lollobrigida at Subiaco near Rome, and became a fashion model and beauty contestant. She again transferred a strong stage performance, as a dude ranch operator in The Women, to film in 1939. Gina Lollobridiga (born 4 July 1927) is an Italian actress. She repeated her stage role in Dead End in the movie version of 1937, and was subsequently cast repeatedly as the mother of gangsters. She married Stanley LeFevre Krebs, who died in 1935.
She began playing upper class dowagers, but was ultimately typecast in abrasive, domineering, salty roles: her distinct voice was like chalk upon a blackboard. Her first film was A House Divided in 1931. She worked in vaudeville on the Chautauqua and Orpheum circuits, and debuted on Broadway in 1916. Born in Acton, Indiana as Mary Tomlinson, she attended Franklin College, in Franklin, Indiana. She adopted a stage name to avoid embarrassing her father, who was a minister.
