• Elke Sommer

A 5x3 card signed with a blue sharpie by German-born actress Elke Sommer, who was spotted by film director Vittorio De Sica while on holiday in Italy, and started appearing in films there in the late 1950s. She quickly became a noted sex symbol and moved to Hollywood in the early 1960s. She also became one of the most popular pin-up girls of the time, and posed for several pictorials in Playboy magazine. She became one of the top movie actresses of the 1960s and made 99 movie and television appearances between 1959 and 2005, including A Shot in the Dark (1964) with Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau, The Art of Love (1965) with James Garner and Dick Van Dyke, The Oscar (1966) with Stephen Boyd, Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (1966) with Bob Hope, the Bulldog Drummond extravaganza Deadlier Than the Male (1966), and The Wrecking Crew (1969) with Dean Martin. In 1975, Peter Rogers cast her in Carry On Behind as the Russian Professor Vrooshka and she became the Carry On's highest paid performer, at £30,000 (an honour shared with Phil Silvers for Follow That Camel). Sommer also performed successfully as a singer, making several albums.
