Why I chose Barbara:
Barbara Steele is the poster lady for Gothic Horror films, her name invokes thoughts of beauty and Horror perfectly blended together. I’ve always found her hypnotic on screen and she’s still a popular name.
I’d have to pick the first role I saw her in, in the amazing Italian Horror film “Black Sunday” directed by Mario Bava. To me it’s the one of the quintessential Gothic Horrors and Steele is mesmerizing in it.
