I was reminded how sexy girls could look in the 1960s when I watched a rather mediocre late Boris Karloff movie, Die, Monster, Die, from 1965. Suzan Farmer, the British actress who, without a headband or pointy bra, was also quite fetching in Victorian garb in Hammer’s Dracula, Prince of Darkness from 1966, here looks quite luscious as she shows Nick Adams around Karloff’s gloomy manse. I couldn’t help but snap a few screencaps…
In a couple of the pics it looks like ole Nick couldn’t resist an ogle or two himself!
Miss Farmer had a nice face. I like how the scene rounded off the sneaky eroticism of showing off her shape in that vaguely see-through sweater over the white bra, and showcasing her blonde hair with the headband, by coming in for closeups that make you yearn for her soul as well as her body. But that was the magic of moviemaking back in the day. Even if the horror movie wasn’t good, you got horny and fell in love with the beauty onscreen.
Here’s an interesting obituary for Ms. Farmer from The Guardian in 2017, with trailers of some of her films. And another headband shot!
