From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Barbara Steele (born December 29, 1937) is a British actress. She's best known as the scream queen of Italian gothic horror movies of the 1960s. Her break through came in Italian director Mario Bava's Black Sunday (1960). It's now hailed as a masterpiece of the Italian gothic horror film. Steele starred in a string of gothic horror classics including: The Horrible Dr. Hichcock (1962), The Ghost (1963) (Dir.: Riccardo Freda) and, according to Kim Newman's Nightmare Movies (1988), is on record as saying that she never wanted "to climb out of another f---ing coffin again".
