Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,

Valerie Leon

Here are two lounge songs, chosen to illustrate the beauty of cult English actress Valerie Leon.
Valerie Leon (born in 1943) is regarded as something of a cult figure due to her roles in a number of high profile British film franchises, including the Carry On series. After leaving school, she became a trainee fashion buyer at Harrods, before playing truant one day to go to an audition which led to her becoming a chorus girl, and then going on tour with Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl. Leon appeared in several of the Carry On films and has been both an "official" and "unofficial" Bond girl (playing the "hotel receptionist" in The Spy Who Loved Me and the "Lady in Bahamas" in the non-canon Never Say Never Again). Other supporting appearances included Revenge of the Pink Panther, The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer (as the secretary "Tanya"), a hotel receptionist in The Italian Job, and a callgirl in No Sex Please, We're British, alongside fellow Carry On actress Margaret Nolan. The 1971 Hammer horror film Blood from the Mummy's Tomb offered Leon a rare lead role, as a reincarnated Egyptian queen. On television, Leon is probably best remembered for her part as a tall buxom woman driven wild by a small and puny man wearing Hai Karate aftershave, in a series of commercials for the product. She also appeared in The Saint, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Up Pompeii!, The Avengers, Space: 1999, The Persuaders, and in The Goodies comedy episode "It Might as Well Be String".
Enjoy Valerie Leon's exciting beauty!
