Ellie Lambetti (1922-1983) starred in the 1956 film A Girl in Black. Directed by Michael Cacoyannis, who is probably best known as the director of Zorba the Greek (1964). He is sometimes billed as Mihalis Kakogiannis.
Lambetti's career included roles in many stage performances, such as: The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, Antigone; and for other films, such as: Zero for Conduct (1949) and A Matter of Dignity (1958, also with Cacoyannis directing).
