Trivia:

Her most famous role, the earthy Bitter Rice (1949), had her out toiling ever so sexily in the rice fields. Lucille Ball did a hilarious spoof on this movie on her sitcom I Love Lucy (1951). Lucy is spotted by a famous Italian movie director and chosen to play a part in his new movie, "Bitter Grapes", that ends up with her toiling in her now famous grape-stomping vat scene. See more »
