Ann-Margret married actor Roger Smith in 1967. She toured the world entertaining US troops and hosted several American TV specials. She was too wholesome for late 1960s film roles, so she went to Italy to make three appalling “comedies”:

Il tigre (aka The Tiger and the Pussycat – Italian 29-Apr-1967) Carolina
Il profeta (aka Mr Kinky – Italian 15-Feb-68) Maggie
7 uomini e un cervello (aka Criminal Symphony – Italian 1968) Leticia

After the ridiculous biker movie, C.C. & Company (1970) with ex-footballer Joe Namath, Ann-Margret revived her movie career in Carnal Knowledge (1971) with Jack Nicholson, winning a Gold Globe and Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
