Her breakthrough role came in Italian director Mario Bava's Black Sunday (1960), now hailed as a masterpiece of the Italian gothic horror genre. Steele starred in a string of horror films, including The Horrible Dr. Hichcock (1962); The Ghost, directed by Riccardo Freda; and Roger Corman's 1961 adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Pit and the Pendulum."
