PostSubject: Angela Scoular 1945-2011 CR & OHMSS Bond Girl   Wed Apr 13, 2011 1:30 pm

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1376148/Police-investigating-Leslie-Phillipss-Bond-girl-wife-Angela-Scoular-dies.html

Angela Scoular, the wife of Leslie Phillips, has died after drinking chemicals in a suspected suicide.

The 65-year-old actress, who starred in two Bond films, had been suffering from bowel cancer.

Police were called to her home in Maida Vale, north-west London, at 1.50pm on Monday after she apparently downed a significant quantity of a toxic liquid.


Tragic: Leslie Phillips with Miss Scoular:

Starlet: Angela Scoular as Ruby in a scene from On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969); with George Lazenby as James Bond


Bond girl: Angela Scoular appeared in two fillms about the famous spy - Casino Royale and On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Here, she appears as Buttercup with David Niven in Casino Royale

A talented actress, she played Lady Agatha Shawcross in the TV series You Rang, M’Lord? and Cathy in a 1967 production of Wuthering Heights. Other credits include The Avengers, Penmarric and As Time Goes By.

She appeared in two Bond films – as Buttercup in Casino Royale in 1966 and as Ruby Bartlett in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969.

Film roles also included A Countess From Hong Kong (1967), featuring Marlon Brando and Sophia Loren, Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (1968), and the British comedy Doctor In Trouble, in which Phillips also starred, in 1970.

A police spokesman said: ‘The death is currently being treated as unexplained and officers from Westminster are investigating. An inquest will be held in due course.’

A police spokesman said: ‘Ambulance services attended and the woman was taken to a Central London hospital where she was pronounced dead at 5.28pm.

‘Her death is currently being treated as unexplained and officers from Westminster are investigating.

‘An inquest will be held in due course.’

- Terrible news, RIP Angela

Damn, I hate to hear this. Ruby was an unforgettable character in OHMSS. One of my favorite secondary Bond girls.

Requiescat in pacem.

I really don't like hearing this type of news. 65 isn't terribly old, either.

Apparently they are saying that she killed herself to end her battle with cancer. Very sad :-(

I'm not a huge Ruby fan, but her character did always make me smile, and the writing with the lipstick is pretty iconic.

RIP

She drank drain cleaner, but it wasn't suicide? Okay.

Perhaps the rationale was that an insane person cannot commit suicide, although that doesn't make much sense either.

At any rate, what a ghastly end for poor Angela.

Yeah, not sure I get that either to be honest. Always liked her. As you can see from my avatar Majesty's is my favorite Bond film. It's very sad that something like this should have happened. I never knew about her alcoholism and depression and it's so sad to realize that the bubbly Ruby was actually a very unhappy person for much of her life. Rest in peace.

PostSubject: Actress Linda Christian, first Bond girl, dies at 87   Tue Jul 26, 2011 12:43 am

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/actress-linda-christian-first-bond-girl-dies-at-87-2322574.html

Quote :
Actress Linda Christian, who married Hollywood leading man Tyrone Power and became the first Bond girl, has died aged 87, her daughter Romina Power said.

Christian, who starred in the 1954 television adaptation of Ian Fleming's debut novel "Casino Royale" about 007 agent James Bond, died in Palm Desert, California on Friday after a battle with colon cancer.

She was born in 1923 in Mexico, the daughter of a Dutch oil executive and his German-Mexican wife, with whom she traveled the world, becoming fluent in seven languages.

Christian made her debut in 1944 in "Up in Arms," before marrying Power in 1949. The couple divorced in 1956, two years after her role as Valerie Mathis - aka Vesper Lynd - the love interest of 007 played by Barry Nelson.

The actress, who later married English actor Edmund Purdom, is survived by daughters Romina and Taryn Power and eight grandchildren.

The first big-screen Bond movie was "Dr. No" in 1962, starring Sean Connery and featuring Ursula Andress, who famously emerged from the sea in a white bikini, in her role as Honey

Rest in peace...

PostSubject: Syd Cain RIP   Tue Nov 22, 2011 8:35 am

Quote :
SYD CAIN, JAMES BOND ART DIRECTOR, DEAD AT AGE 93

By Lee Pfeiffer

Syd Cain, the respected art director and production designer, has died at age 93. Syd's death is a personal loss to many of us at Cinema Retro who considered him a friend. His remarkable career included a long association with the James Bond films. He began on the very first film, Dr. No, in 1962 as art director, working with the legendary production designer Ken Adam. When Adam wasn't available for the second film, From Russia With Love, Syd took over for the art direction and production design duties. Syd was billed as the production designer for the 1969 Bond classic On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969, playing a crucial role in the design of the Piz Gloria sets that served as the Alpine HQ of Blofeld. He would return to the fold several years later as Supervising Art Director for Roger Moore's debut as 007 in Live and Let Die (1973). Cain also did other films for Bond producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman including the Eon Productions comedy Call Me Bwana and the Saltzman-produced Harry Palmer thriller Billion Dollar Brain. In the 1950s he also worked for Broccoli and his former partner Irving Allen and their Warwick Films company.

Other major films that Cain served as art director or production designer for include Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Road to Hong Kong, Lolita, Farenheit 451 and Bond director Peter Hunt's Shout at the Devil. Cain also had a long association with producer Euan Lloyd, working with him on The Wild Geese, Who Dares Wins and Wild Geese II. In 1995, Cain renewed his association with the Bond franchise, designing storyboards for the 1995 blockbuster GoldenEye.

Cain remained active in his later years, attending many Bond-themed events. On a personal note, I recall having him appear as a surprise guest at an event I was holding at Pinewood Studios in the late 1990s. Syd was shocked and humbled at the degree of interest attendees had in his work and he kept them spellbound when he unveiled a portfolio of some of his original storyboards. In 2002, Dave Worrall and I had the honor of assisting Syd with writing his autobiography, Not Forgetting James Bond, which we also published. It was fascinating to read his first-hand comments about the making of the 007 series. As with many alumni from Eon-produced films, the company always maintained reverence for his work and legacy and invited Syd to high profile events relating to the world of Bond. We join them in mourning his passing.

RIP. A terribly underrated production designer. Easily the best after Ken Adam. Love the interiors of the Piz Gloria.

R.I.P.

Cain undoubtedly was a strong influence in the series. Ken Adam was of course better known, but Cain's work on FRWL and OHMSS is a major reason why these films are the two Bond films for so many.
