The ex BlueBells was a super star in Italy, she was on TV on Saturday night show, speaking an excellent italian with a delicious voice and an astonishing pair of legs.
Still alive in Rome after an INCREDIBILE ACCIDENT during the shower.

Londoneer...nudie model for Harrison Marks, skater, dancer, showgirl...Blue Bells...no...but touring dance company, yesterday Lyon today Milan...Antonioni's cast director watch her on stage, Il Grido was a huge success, Lynn likes it, leaving Italy after 5 years, 6 movies, TV primetime shows and leaving her nudie model name for more aristocratic Jacqueline Jones.

Just this morning I knew that Therese had died in Milano in January, she was simply one of my favorite italian actress, she left London at the age of 16 to reach a Flower Power community in Sicily, then started nude modeling in 1973. When director Lattuada saw her pics wanted to meet her soon, and later casted her as the retarded girl in Bambina. She had an overnight success, she was often casted as Lolita, but truly she really looked younger than any other actress. Hamilton wanted her as model when she was 26...I saw her in person when she was 57, she really looks to me a 30something women.

A tall and superbly endowed dancer from Yorkshire, fist time in Italy with Blue Bells (obvious)in 1968 then she liked Rome and she found apartment and love, greek/italian actor Vassili Karis, they played together on typical spaghetti western, she spent all movie career at Cinecittà except a Honk Kong Kung Fu Comedy flick Virgins of 7 Seas where she played the tallest Virgin...even the tallest between actor...
Be a such tall goddess can be significant when you walking down the streets like Via Veneto, every single male will turn his head, but can be a big problem when you was on the set and your male co-star is 10 or 15 cm shorter than you.

She was the right arm of Mother Teresa of Calcutta for 10 years, but her profile is mark as ADULT.
Before any word she never did porn.
She came from a weird family, so she lived with foster parents, at 18 she pursued modeling, she's a striking blonde but she was cast by Giorgio Strehler, the italian most important theater director, for Brecht's Threepenny Opera !!!
Still acting in genres films such Comedy, Giallo, Horror and Poliziottesco and the Argento's underrated Four Flies on Grey Velvet. What went wrong ? Nothing in Italy, she received big big money from Sweden for Fanny Hill part two, so she spent away the 1973, Skandinavia, Germany, Taiwan. After the world tour she's back with big comedy and a drama with Tognazzi, her last hooray is a TV movie for Gianni Amelio.

The classy Miss England spent her time on the Ol' Boots too.
She was a roman empress from '69 to '75 acting in Giallo or erotic drama, queen of nunsploitation genere.
Back to B'Ham, no, gone to California.

This is story of Minnie from Hertfordshire : the former Bluebell was notice on stage by Walter Chiari during Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella in Coventry, he and Lelio Luttazzi was working on a new "Rivista" named Io e La Margherita, so she toured Italy for a couple of years then back to London. When on stage with The Frog Prince was notice by italian mogul Giorgio Ammaniti, he was looking for a wife...
In 1971 her big break, TV Sat Night Show, everybody wants some...80's very very bad for her career.

Father was a British embassy officer she was born in Montego bay, back to London to the School of Law. Beryl liked to act after an episode of Knight Errand Limited, and an Middle Age italian flick on location (?!?) she love to dance too, with some friends take a vacation in Rome. Director Margheriti was in the need for a skilled dancer in Peplum and saw her...
To London again to finish the school but the phone rings twice, back to Rome, 3 movies per years and married director Pietro Vivarelli, quit acting in 85.

Mass. Patriot's rating:

Martine spent 1973 in Italy, before that the only thing knew about italians was Luciana Paluzzi's b**bs.
She was cast in two movies, the drama "Kiss Of Death" from Carolina Invernizio's novel, Avati bros as producers and their old pal Lanfranchi behind the camera.
The other one was Last Tango In Paris spoof by Franco Franchi !!! And Martine is TERRIFIC, I can't believe she's the same actress in Doctor Jekyll and Sister Hyde...

Mass. Patriot's rating:

How Lady Oscar became Lucio Fulci's favorite actress remains a mistery, she did all "Gates Of Hell" trilogy, living in Italy for a couple of years, enduring Fulci's screams and shouts along with pal David Warbeck.

Jane presented a late night quiz show, I believe her romanian, later I discovered an excellent acting as dark lady, the perfect she-villain. She's born in Watford in 1972, her Tweets are never gratuitous as below.

About this list...it's tough with my poor english how to describe sensations, situations and feelings for actresses, for women in general. I hope you have fun reading the fun facts, sometimes not funny, that's life.
