Swedish Nymphette: Christina Lindberg

Her filmography might not be so impressive, but it only took her a few films to become an emblematic figure of ‘70 s exploitation cinema. This was in particular thanks to “Thriller, en grym film” reference of rape’n’revenge. Christina started young, doing photo shooting. Quickly beginning to show off her charms, she drew attention of American producers for the casting of the film “Maid in Sweden” (Dan Wolfman 1969). The rest went very quickly: model for the most notorious charm publications in the world (Playboy, Penthouse), filming between the US and Japan, playmate on the Croisette. Flying high in the world of sexploitation, this Swedish brunette continually refused to cross over to the X-rated side… She disappeared almost completely from the screens in the second half of the decade, to re-orientate towards journalism. Indisputable icon of a specific type of cinema, her come-back seems imminent; she’s made a few short films since 2009, and perhaps a feature is to follow?
