That woman was, of course, Caroline Munro and as she celebrates her 70th birthday, here's a little appreciation.
Caroline had won The Evening News’ ‘Face Of The Year’ content, which led to her modelling for Vogue magazine at the age of 17. David Bailey cast her in his film G G Passion (1966) and she moved to London to pursue modelling, becoming a cover girl for fashion and TV adverts. She also recorded backing vocals for a record, Tar And Cement, in the company of Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker. A small part, as a voluptuous Guard Girl in Casino Royale (1967), led to a one-year contract with Paramount Pictures, who cast her as Richard Widmark's daughter in A Talent for Loving (1969). During the making of the film she met her first husband, actor/musician Judd Hamilton and they married in 1970.

"The career was wonderful. I never sought anything, really, I never pursued anything. I was not ambitious. It came to me."
