Cakes reign but a Day.

Charlotte Rampling

Here are two light songs, chosen to illustrate the beauty of young Charlotte Rampling, one of the greatest living actresses.
Charlotte Rampling (born Tessa Charlotte Rampling in 1946) was born in Great Britain. Her career spans four decades in English-language as well as French and Italian cinema. After beginning her career at age seventeen in a commercial role and as a model, Rampling's first screen appearance was uncredited as a water skier in Richard Lester's film "The Knack …and How to Get It" in 1965, which was followed a year later by the role of Meredith in the film "Georgy Girl". She also played gunfighter Hana Wilde in "The Superlative Seven", a 1967 episode of The Avengers. After this, her acting career blossomed in both English and French cinema. Young Rampling was sexy and glamorous. Rampling has often performed controversial roles. In 1969, in Luchino Visconti's "The Damned", she played a young wife sent to a concentration camp. This role redrew Rampling entirely as mysterious, tragic, even sinister. "The Look" as co-star Dirk Bogarde called it, became her trademark. In 1974's "The Night Porter" she portrayed a former concentration camp inmate entangled in a sado-masochistic relationship with her former guard, played by Bogarde. The actress gained recognition from American audiences in a remake of Raymond Chandler's detective story "Farewell, My Lovely" (1975) and later with Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" (1980) and particularly in "The Verdict" (1982), an acclaimed drama directed by Sidney Lumet that starred Paul Newman. On her choice of roles, Rampling says: "I generally don't make films to entertain people. I choose the parts that challenge me to break through my own barriers. A need to devour, punish, humiliate, or surrender seems to be a primal part of human nature, and it's certainly a big part of sex. To discover what normal means, you have to surf a tide of weirdness." The actress has continued to work in sexually provocative films such as the "Basic Instinct" 2003 sequel starring Sharon Stone. In 2002, she also recorded a music album entitled "Comme Une Femme". It is in both French and English, and includes parts that are spoken word as well as tracks Rampling sang.
Enjoy young Charlotte Rampling's beauty and infinite charm!
