What is it about an attractive or intriguing woman that turns an ordinary man into a creative whirlwind? Beautiful women served as a muse for Bob Guccione as an artist and as a photographer. The women that are featured on Filthy Gorgeous have served a muse for photographers from the past and they continue to evoke inspiration for the future generations. All of the women that are given the title, Filthy Muse, are timeless.
Teresa Ann Savoy is a Filthy Gorgeous Muse.
Savoy was only 18 years old when she first appeared in adult magazines. The first magazine to publish her pictorial was the Italian adult magazine Playmen in October 1973. Due to her age, Savoy used the alias of “Terry”. This “Terry” had fled from home at the age of 16 and was living in a hippie community in Sicily. Her story quickly became to the attention of the press. It was this start in Playmen that launched her acting career and in 1974 film director Alberto Lattuada gave her her first role in the film Le farò da padre aka La bambina, playing a intellectually disabled girl named Clotilde. In 1975 Savoy met Tinto Brass and they worked together in the successful film Salon Kitty in which she played a young BDM girl who becomes a spy that poses as a prostitute for the SS Nazi paramilitary organization. However it was in 1976, that Brass was involved in the film Caligula which was produced by Bob Guccione.
Maria Schneider, who was to have played the role of Drusilla, Caligula’s beloved sister and lover, walked out of the project when she decided she didn’t want to do the nude scenes. Although Savoy was a last minute replacement for Schneider, Savoy was a pure artist with no shame and pulled the part of Drusilla off without a hitch. In Caligua, Savoy starred in many erotic scenes, including a threesome with Helen Mirren. It’s in this scene where she really shines. Both her and Mirren are engaging in a threesome with a guy as they first come in out of the rain, attended to by a number of girls in see-through dresses. The girls then leave the threesome, and we see Teresa naked as the guy leans over to kiss her left nipple. He then cups Helen’s right breast to do the same, though her nipple remains hidden. The girls lean in to kiss one another and we see a few good shots of Teresa’s bare butt.
Many fans of Savoy believed that she abandoned her acting career in 1986, after her performance in La Donna del Traghetto, but she acted in Rose in 1989. This goes to show that the life and career of this beautiful and enigmatic actress has always been characterized by mysterious facts and speculations. Many titles may exist with her in the cast, that are not listed on the IMDB. In 2000, she made her last appearance in the silver screen in La Fabbrica del Vapore, the first Italian digital movie and went on to receive the title of Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1989. Savoy now resides in Milan, and is married with two children.
