(BOND) BABE OF THE DAY - CAROLINE MUNRO...



LAMB'S NAVY RUM and BOND GIRL, CAROLINE
MUNRO, is today's babe, fellas!  Remember her in the two
Dr. PHIBES movies and CAPTAIN KRONOS - VAMPIRE
HUNTER?  If she ain't a babe then no one is!  Now, wipe
that drool of your chin - you look ridiculous.

Kid, the film I best remember her in was The Golden Voyage of Sinbad which also starred Tom Baker not long before he became Dr. Who - in fact I'm sure I read that he was offered the Who role on the strength of his performance in Sinbad, I could be mistaken on that though.

I remember seeing her in that film too, CJ. It was at my local cinema, but I think it was a few years after it first came out, before it was on TV (which took about 5 years back then).

I recall seeing her at the Glasgow Memorabilia show about 10-15 years ago signing autographs with a queue of about 30 excited (and sad looking stereotyped fanboy)blokes -I found that strange as she wasn't a young lady at that time (though nice looking) . I had no idea who she was until someone told me and recall looking at her again thinking "wow" -
that day I found out I was a shallow celebrity bunny boiler type

She's 65 years old, believe it or not, McScotty, but was certainly a babe in her day. Glasgow Memorabilia show, eh? So that's what you get up to when you're not giving Louis Spence a kicking?

I first encountered The Golden Voyage of Sinbad as a Marvel adaptation - it was in POTA No.35-38 with art by George Tuska but I don't know where it appeared in its' original U.S. version, some kind of one-off Treasury edition type of thing perhaps. I finally saw it on TV on Friday December 28th 1979 - I know the exact date as I saved the Christmas 1979 editions of Radio Times and TV Times because we were crossing the '70s/'80s boundary which was a big deal for me at the time (I was only three on New Year's Eve 1969 so obviously didn't understand the significance of the date). Anyway, I only kept those two TV guides for a few years but the 1979 Xmas TV schedule is seared into my memory.

As is Caroline Munro I bet, eh, CJ?

That was a good system when the movie played then after a significant period,was shown on the telly.
I remember it being promoted to the viewing public as a big deal.

I also miss the 'double bill'.

But not half as much as I miss the heavy purple curtain that protected the screen,which lifted and parted to reveal the bad trailers and local business ads, then closed again until the dusky orange lights dimmed and it opened again.
Sometimes the certificate would be projected onto the curtain as it opened,that was magical.


I saw this movie when it was released on a saturday matinee and it was great.
A big deal at the time.
I cannot remember if it was a double bill though.

Kid said...

I have the distinct impression that I saw it as part of a double bill, but I have no idea what the other film may have been. One day, I'll go down to the library and look through back issues of the local newspaper to see if I can find out.

The Marvel adaptation of the "Golden Voyage of Sinbad" appeared in "Worlds Unknown" issues 7 & 8 Colin

Thanks very much, Paul !

How do you find time to look these things up, McScotty, between costume changes?

******

See? You and Col are on first name terms now. Crivens! Blog - bringing people together.

I can multi task Kid I can do a costume change and check my comics at same time :) - I actually bought issue 8 about 2 months ago (tatty copy) and as its a continued story and issue 8 was the "end" I put my Sherlock Holmes detective skils to good use and sussed out the answer

Kid said...

I thought it was only women who could multi-task, McScotty? (Aha! I see - once you're in the dress...)
