About Caroline Munro:
Caroline's modelling career started when she was just sixteen. Her mother entered her into the Face Of The Year competition being held by the photographer David Bailey and the British newspaper The Evening News, and she won. This led to many modelling contracts, the first being for Vogue Magazine at the age of 17. She then moved to London to pursue her career and became a regular cover girl for fashion and TV adverts before moving towards acting.

Her film career began with uncredited roles in Smoke Over London (Original title: Fumo di Londra) (1966), G.G. Passion (1966) and the James Bond parody Casino Royale (1967). Shortly after these one of her photo ads got her a screen test and a one year contract at Paramount where she won the role of Richard Widmark's daughter, Ms Patten, in the comedy western A Talent For Loving (1969).

Later she played Victoria Phibes, Vincent Price's wife in The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) and again in Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972) which in turn led to a Hammer Studios contract and such spine-tinglers as Dracula A.D (1972) and Kronos (1974).

Away from Hammer she enjoyed new challenges such as the slave girl love interest, Margiana, in The Golden Voyages Of Sinbad (1974), Princess Dia in At the Earth's Core (1976) and Bond girl Naomi in the Roger Moore classic The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).

After her first Vogue feature she was chosen to head the advertising campaigns for several products, she is remembered most as the calander girl for Lambs Navy Rum, which she did for over 10 years.
