popular entertainment show Hylands Hörna, but also in Italy, and in 1967 at age 16, she made her feature-film debut with a supporting role in the comedy Don Giovanni
in Sicilia (Don Juan in Sicily), based on the novel by Vitaliano Brancati. This film led to a movie career for Aulin that would last a little more than six years, starting with leading roles in two notable giallo films: the pop art-style Col cuore in gola (With Heart in Mouth, 1967) directed by Tinto Brass, and the avant-garde La morte ha fatto l'uovo (Death Laid an Egg, 1968) directed by
Giulio Questi. Aulin's co-star in both these films was Jean-Louis Trintignant. The only other American film Aulin appeared in was Start the Revolution Without Me (1970), a comedy of errors set during the French Revolution. Aulin played a supporting role as Christina of Belgium, and the film starred Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland, but like Candy, the film did little business in America.
