Beautiful leading lady who came to international prominence as a struggling, scantily-clad peasant in Giuseppe De Santis' neorealist drama, "Bitter Rice" (1949). Mangano later proved her ability in films by such directors as Vittorio De Sica ("Gold of Naples" 1954), Pier Paolo Pasolini ("Teorema" 1968) and Luchino Visconti ("Death in Venice" 1971). She married producer Dino DeLaurentiis in 1949 and appeared in a number of his films, as well as one--"Dune" (1985)--produced by their daughter Raffaella DeLaurentiis.
