I never noticed it before, but Ingrid Pitt looked vaguely like Lee Grant. In that second photo, I could have almost sworn that was who it was.

EEGAH!! said...

Very astute observation Grant!! They did look VERY similar!

TC said...

Never noticed before, but there is a resemblance between Ingrid Pitt and Lee Grant.

Ingrid Pitt was typecast in horror in the 1970's, and as a terrorist in the 1980's (Wild Geese II and The Final Option). (The latter was originally called "Who Dares, Wins" in Great Britain.)

Ingrid and Yutte Stansgaard both played Carmilla in movies, The Vampire Lovers and Lust For a Vampire, respectively. I wouldn't mind being bitten by either one.

Carol Lynley was as cute as a bug.

Susan Hampshire was in (IIRC) two episodes of Danger Man (aka Secret Agent), and they were as close as John Drake ever got to a romantic involvement.

Gabriella Licudi was awesome. She was also in a Danger Man/Secret Agent episode, English Lady Takes Lodgers.

Senta Berger was awesome, too. Like Daliah Lavi and Luciana Paluzzi, she could probably play a seductive foreign spy in her sleep.

Offhand, I can name four or five Fay Wray movies, all of them horror or suspense: King Kong, The Most Dangerous Game, Doctor X, The Vampire Bat, The Mystery of the Wax Museum. She was the Jamie Lee Curtis of the 1930's. Or maybe Jamie was the Fay Wray of the late 1970's.

Anne Jeffreys was in a "B" western series with Bill Elliot and Gabby Hayes. She also played Tess Truehart, the hero's girlfriend, in the RKO Dick Tracy series. As I recall, there was a running gag with them getting interrupted every time they were about to kiss.

I believe she and Robert Sterling were married IRL. They had great chemistry on Topper.

Jane "Poni" Adams also made "B" Westerns, with Kirby Grant and Fuzzy Knight. Maybe they were Universal's answer to Bill, Anne, and Gabby. Or to Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, and Gabby.

Peggie Castle played the saloon owner, and the marshal's sorta-kinda girlfriend, in the TV series Lawman. Very similar to Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty on Gunsmoke.

Yvonne Craig was in a Star Trek episode, and also in In Like Flint, with James Coburn. In the latter, she played a Russian ballerina. I think she had formal ballet training IRL, and in fight scenes on Batman, it showed in her graceful spinning kicks.

In an interview, Yvonne (who was 5'3") said it was a relief when Eartha Kitt (who was 5'4") replaced Julie Newmar (5'11") as Catwoman. "If I'd had a fight scene with Julie, what could I do? Hit her in the knee?"

Natalie Wood made a couple of movies with Tab Hunter, and they dated a few times. Studio publicity tried to link them romantically, but they were platonic friends. Years later, Tab came out and revealed that he was gay. Their closest friends knew it all along, and there was an in-joke in Hollywood: "Natalie Wood. But Tab wouldn't."

Ewa Aulen also has one of the great attractive VOICES. I thought I heard that she was dubbed by someone else in CANDY, but maybe I misunderstood or heard wrong (I've seen START THE REVOLUTION WITHOUT ME plenty of times, and her voice in that film certainly sounds the same). Either way, I kind of hope not, because it seems like the perfect voice for her and the Candy character.

Apart from MARS NEEDS WOMEN (which I've always liked), the oddest thing I've seen with Yvonne Craig is an unsuccessful pilot for a spy show called JARRETT. It was a very tongue-in-cheek spy story, and she played a mainly comical femme fatale, with a thick southern accent and a long blonde wig!


I'm pretty sure Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffries were married as TC says, and that Tisha Sterling is their daughter. She'd of course make another good choice for one of these lists.

EEGAH!! said...

So, TC, I'm guessing you agree with most of my choices What I don't get is, why am I doing this instead of you? Thanx buddy! So many great gals and so many interesting stories, I would have loved to have bought lunch for them all!

EEGAH!! said...

I have not yet had any success trying to track down any footage from "Jarrett," Grant, and Lord knows I've tried, but it has been on the list for a while, and I'm sure one of these days it will suddenly be available, or at least I hope so!

Grant said...

Believe it or not, I managed to come by a copy of Jarrett, from one of those traders who can seemingly find just about anything. There's a problem playing the last third of it or so, but it might not be a problem with EVERY player. If you'd like, I'd be really glad to lend it.

EEGAH!! said...

That would be cool Grant! I'd like to check that one off the list! Leave a comment with your email address, and I won't post it, and we can communicate a little better. Thanx!!
