Defying the conventional wisdom that nobody laughs and comes at the same time is sensual and silly sex-screen pioneer Elke Sommer. Ranked number thirty-one on Playboy's list of the One Hundred Sexiest Stars of the Century, Elke and her bare breasts made a serious impact when they burst upon the public in Sweet Ecstasy (1962). Although shot in black-and-white and with her nipples covered by the mashing mitts of a hulking Euro hunk, Elke's tits were a brazen dare to all the swinging '60s starlets. Elke was just as effective at tickling funny bones. Her kooky bombshell foil to Peter Sellers in A Shot in the Dark (1964) is a key to why that movie is regarded as the best Pink Panther outing of all. Speaking five languages, Sommer was a bright, breasty star in the cinema of an equal number of nations. Her budding youth is amply documented on several continents. Her ample maturity can be sampled in The House of Exorcism (1975). By 1975 Elke's unsinkables were thirty-five years old and filmed in color but were still mashed by some hulking Euro hunk's mitts.
