Here is a tribute to beautiful cult actress Martine Beswick.
One of Great Britain's foremost pin-up girls, the delightful Martine Beswick (born in 1941 in Jamaica) has managed the neat trick of being kinky and classy all in one. Beswick made her first film appearance as one of the fighting gypsy girls in the 1963 James Bond flick From Russia With Love; she returned to Bondland with a more substantial role in Thunderball (1965). After drawing attention away from a near-naked Raquel Welch in One Million Years B.C. (1966) (with whom she also engaged in a catfight), Beswick was awarded with the leading role in the similar Prehistoric Women (1967). She attracted the notice of the intelligentsia with her performance as a leather-clad lesbian in 1967's Penthouse, then went on to play half the title role in Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde (1971). She played Adelita in the well-regarded Spaghetti Western, A Bullet for the General (1967), opposite Klaus Kinski and Gian Maria Volontè. She starred as the Queen of Evil in Oliver Stone's 1974 directorial debut Seizure, or Queen of Evil. By contrast, her portrayal of Xaviera Hollander in The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood (1980) was a model of restraint. She made numerous guest appearances on television series, including Sledge Hammer!, Fantasy Island, The Fall Guy, Mannix, The Six Million Dollar Man and Falcon Crest and played in the 1979 miniseries The Innocent and the Damned.
Beswick's career was active well into the 1990s. Since then, she has mainly participated in film documentaries, providing commentary and relating her experiences on the many films in which she has appeared. She is now semiretired except for her guest appearances at international Bond conventions.
Enjoy Martine Beswick's charm!
