Born Barbara Goutscher in 1943 in Reichenberg, Germany (also known as Liberec, a part of the Sudetenland that was eventually restored to the Czech Republic), her family emigrated to San Francisco, California. She entered modelling and show business as a teenager and eventually moved to Hollywood to expand into a film career. She costarred with Peter Mark Richman in Agent for H.A.R.M., a 1966 spy flick directed by Gerd Oswald, and also appeared in the spy spoof Casino Royale with Orson Welles in the same year. Since the seventies, she has been living in Rome, Italy, where she has become a celebrity by starring in B-Movies.
