Throwback Thursday – Victoria Vetri/Angela Dorian in 1966

Victoria Vetri
Let’s throw this blog back to 1966 for the sake of Italian-American actress Victoria Vetri. Known by most as her stage name ‘Angela Dorian‘ (inspired by the ill-fated cruise liner Andrea Doria), the thing that really drew me to Vetri was not just her successful career, but the fact that she achieved it while turning down some incredible opportunities. Not many actresses today would turn down the chance to voice dub for Natalie Wood in West Side Story (1961) or play the nubile title role in Lolita (1962).

These screen caps – which have me lusting over a new trenchcoat – have been snapped from the TV show “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.“. In this episode (“The Indian Affairs Affair”) Victoria guest starred as Charisma Highcloud, the daughter of a Native American Chief. Feeling a black-haired Lana del Rey vibe, no?
