Il Dolce corpo di Deborah (The Sweet Body of Deborah)

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Romolo Guerrieri's Il Dolce corpo di Deborah (which stars Carroll Baker and Jean Sorel) was inspired by Umberto Lenzi's early thrillers, but it is in fact made in 1968, before both Così dolce... così perversa and Orgasmo.
Luigi Pistilli, George Hilton and Evelyn Stewart rounds out the cast and with a soundtrack by Nora Orlandi and story by Ernesto Gastaldi and Luciano Martino, you know that you're unlikely to be disappointed. It's not my favourite of Guerrieri though. That honor goes to
La Controfigura. Poster art by Renato Casaro.

I love Jean Sorel as a gialli star from days gone by and this locadina is powerful example of a great movie! I wonder what happened to him and what does today for a living?

I agree that he's one of the greatest leading men that ever worked in the genre. I always enjoy his performances.
There's a 2008 entry on his imdb profile, so I guess that he's still working. At least every now and then.

This is a good one and Carol Baker looks ravishing throughout.
