Born: 1957 Country: Italy
A very foxy Italian brunette whose trademark haughty grandeur belied the violent degradation her trash cinema roles tended to involve her in.

# Il ginecologo della mutua (Joe D'Amato, Italy, 1977) (featuring Dirce Funari aged 20) ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭
This Italian flick about the work of a gynaecologist starts off rather weightily. Perhaps it's an 'issues' film? But little as I know about the work of a 'lady's doctor', when this quack starts kiss-chasing a ticklish and clothes-shedding young blonde around his surgery I do know one thing for sure: this should not be happening. So it must be a comedy then.
Unfortunately, more so than even the typical Italian comedy, it's been assembled in an almost entirely random order, thus it's a challenge to deduce more than the vaguest idea of who's who and what's going on. The main attraction is Paola Senatore, but you can also see Lorraine De Selle kissing another woman on the lips - fully clothed, but that's enough don't you think?
This clip starring Dirce, little that it has to do with the plot or anything else, is straightforward: she rises from the couch after an examination and puts on her clothes. If you're wondering why the doctor has such a cavalier attitude to the voluptuous naked female striding seductively across his surgery, it's because he's overworked. Today he's standing in for a richer and more successful colleague - which is the entire premise apparently.
Starcrash (Luigi Cozzi, USA, 1978) (aged 21)
# Blue Movie (Alberto Cavallone, Italy, 1978) (featuring Dirce Funari as Silvia aged 21) ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭
with Danielle Dugas, Claude Maran, Joseph Dickson, Leda Simonetti and Giovanni Brusadori
A piece of voyeuristic sadism from pretentious Italian sleaze merchant Alberto Cavallone. It's surprising he found three such beautiful actresses to volunteer as victims for such explicit degradation, and as pure cinema it turns out a lot better than it ought to be.
The plot is that a misogynistic photographer subjects young women to his sexual whims through any means from moral blackmail to outright kidnapping. The exquisitely elegant Dirce is his original model, not just the perfect odalisque but a grade A masochist with it. But the pair are getting tired of each other. The heart of the first clip is an erotic session with a photographer's lamp as proxy for actual human contact. At the risk of stating the obvious, this model has a wonderfully natural dark hairy muff.
Clip number two moves a bit closer to real physical intimacy; the photographer uses his bare foot to roughly manipulate the ever-submissive Dirce this time. It's the beginning of the real phase of self-willed degradation for this woman, but it just gets scatological and pointless from now on so I've cut things short here.
Un'ombra nell'ombra (Pier Carpi, Italy, 1979) (aged 22)
Midnight Blue (Raimondo Del Balzo, Italy, 1979) (as Silvia aged 22)
# Quello strano desiderio (Enzo Milioni, Italy, 1979) (featuring Dirce Funari aged 22) ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭
with Nico Salatino, Gianni Ciardo, Vanni Materassi, Antonella Antinori, Stella Argiolas, Desiree Bec, Maria D'Alessandro, Marina Hedman, Giada Gerini and Leda Simonetti
A new low for Dirce as she takes a small role in this Italian mish-mash of primitive comic double act and sometimes pornographic sexual vignettes. She must have had either a really bad agent or a drug problem to be forever doing garbage like this. The best piece of comedy is when the bearded one falls out of the rowing boat at the start. The best piece of erotica is probably this night club act. Three posh birds wearing no pants spar on stage with some show off. I'm pleased to say it ends with the demise of Show Off. This might have been the nearest the Italian home video market of the time came to sophistication (I bet you thought they were all three going to piss on him at the end).
Joséphine ou la comédie des ambitions (France, 1979) (aged 22)
# Delitto carnale (Cesare Canevari, Italy, 1983) (featuring Dirce Funari aged 26) ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭
with Marc Porel, Sonia Otero, Fulvio Ricciardi, Moana Pozzi, Rino Falcone, Vanni Materassi, Angela Minafro, Tony Raccosta, Nico Salatino and Pippo Volpe
More of the usual exposure and degradation for Dirce in this late period giallo, a very 'eighties piece of glam and misogyny.
So what's going on here then? As far as I can gather, Dirce is in this room with an angry-looking middle-aged bloke who, after the obligatory slapping around and throttling, gets his knees on her chest and pulls her pants down (rather expertly - he wasn't even looking), giving our foxy starlet a chance to reveal what she's paid to reveal thrashing her legs around with her boots still on, and the cameraman incidentally a chance to reveal his eye for the finer kind of detail.
Halfway through Dirce gets some sort of supernatural scare and the rape turns into a slow love scene. So that's all right then. After a brief and tasteful shot of out-of-focus 'pubes', exit one nude ascending a staircase in contemplative mood, even letting the hint of a wistful smile pass across her ruffled but ever-elegant features.
