After the Italian production of Panic In Bangkok (1964), actress Pier Angeli returned in the hit European-American co-production Battle Of The Bulge (1965). Then, after a handful of films between 1966 and 1970, Pier realized her dreams of superstardom were not to be. She had divorced her second husband (Armando Trovajoli) in 1969 and made her final film appearance on the screen, in 1971, in the low-budget sci-fi opus Octaman (1971), (also available here at Rare Movie Collector). Shortly after, on September 10th, 1971, Pier was found dead from a barbiturate overdose in her Beverly Hills home. She was 39 years old. According to several people who knew her, she was terrified of turning 40.
