Among her most notable titles are Circle of Love (1964, directed by Roger Vadim), The Man, the Woman and the Money (1965, starring Marcello Mastroianni), The Incredible Army of Brancaleone (1966, written by Age & Scarpelli), Adultery Italian Style (1966), Hotel (1967), the sex comedy The Libertine (1969), Diary of a Telephone Operator (1969, with Claudia Cardinale), the drama The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971, written and directed by Dario Argento), the nunsploitation film Story of a Cloistered Nun (1973), the controversial My Darling Slave (1973), the western Take a Hard Ride (1975), Sunday Lovers (1980), and Miele di donna (1981).

Singing career[edit]

As a singer, Spaak was regarded by some as the Italian equivalent of French chanteuse Françoise Hardy, some of whose songs she recorded in 1963. She recorded under the label DET under the direction of Maestro Ezio Leoni, who previously produced Françoise Hardy.
