Pamela Ann Davy.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0205853/

Indicated as Born: 1939 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

This is an absolute fib. In fact, she is older and I think, on the basis of my research, she was born in Melbourne.


Adding to my post in this topic (see above) about Pamela Ann Davy here:

There's an early Honor Blackman film being shown on the excellent Talking pictures channel tomorrow at 11.30 called Diamond city, made in 1949. It also stars David Farrar & Diana Dors. Set in the diamond fields of South Africa, a lawman is trying to maintain a semblance of law and order.

I watched Diamond City (1949) starring Honor Blackman recently. I have to say it was the worst film I have ever seen her in. I do remember her being interviewed and she bemoaned many of her early roles. It was a pretty awful role she had to play here, very saccharine with not much depth. It must have been Manna from heaven when she got the part of Cathy Gale. Post Avengers, Honor's roles improved significantly. Pussy Galore is the best Bond girl (along with Tracy Di Vicenzo). She was also terrific in Life at the top and Shalako, and practically stole the show in Dagger of the mind, my favourite Columbo movie.

As I mentioned once before, she is great in the Danger Man 1960 episode 'Colonel Rodriguez' as her realistic portrayal adds great suspense. We're watching the Cathy episodes this year (just watched one) and Honor is so good.

Honor appears in an episode of Robin's Nest tomorrow (Wed 3rd) at 5.30pm on the Talking Pictures channel. The episode is called Love and Marriage, and Honor plays Tessa Wyatt's mother, in this 1970's sitcom starring Richard O'Sullivan. I'm not sure, but I think this channel is only broadcast in the UK and Ireland. Honor also appeared in an earlier episode called The maternal triangle. All episodes are on youtube though.

Over the weekend I watched an old movie I found on youtube called A matter of WHO. Sadly very topical at the moment! Honor has a supporting role in this film. It was made in 1961 and stars Terry Thomas who carries a brolly, wears a bowler hat and drives a vintage car that looks quite familiar Exclamation

Honor is rather good in this as a vampire hunter... dressed in leather with a very Cathy Gale taste in hats!

Ah that's a blast from the past! I'd forgotten about that show. I'll see if the other episodes are around.

familiar tale of woe...many actors, actresses, etc.often got stuck in horrible films / TV programs, early on...especially if they were trying to jump start their careers, or pay the rent, etc...for Years, Paul newman, would wince, when the local TV station in L.A. , would air his first film, the golden chalice, (??) Newman actually took out a newspaper ad, moaning that film....and offered to buy up every print of that film..LOL !

I watched yesterday A Night to Remember with Honor Blackman (and Laurence Naismith and David McCallum...); she is the mother of 3 and her husband has to stay on the Titanic. A very good movie (better than Cameron's version for me).

A Night To Remember has an amazing cast. Some later-to-be-much-more-famous faces in early roles... Cameron's "Titanic" (with it's cheesy love story nonsense) stole many of the same camera shots and angles.

Well done to David McCallum for cso-starring with so many Avengers ladies, too! Honor in A Night to Remember, Joanna Lumley in Sapphire and Steel, Diana Rigg in Mother Love... did he ever do something with Patrick Macnee?

Edit: silly me, of course there was the Man From UNCLE reunion film, "The Fifteen Years Later Affair".

Remembering the magnificent Honor on her birthday. I'm so glad to be enjoying her first series again, after a long gap they seem very fresh.

true....but cameron shooting in color, and using at the time, state of the art, CGI....and it looked well, despite the cheese-ola...love story...the two earlier films...1953, and 1958, had better script/story...and of course, all three pretty much had the same ending....
