  • Description

    Sylvana Mangano, the
    Italian actress, lost most of her hair this week to acquiesce to the dictates of
    the film business: her latest film role is that of a woman shaven for
    fraternizing with German occupiers in World War Two.

    Miss Mangano braved the hair operation before a battery of cameramen. She looked
    a little sad at times.

    Mangano took over the role in the film - "Jovanka and the others" - from
    Lollobrigida. After a test, wearing a plastic skull cap over her locks, Miss
    Lollobrigida was reportedly so shocked to see herself that way that she
    withdrew.

    Miss Mangano, say some estimates, will receive 200 million lire for that "Yul
    Brynner" look.
