Bond Girls: Daniela Bianchi as Tatiana Romanova

Italian model Daniela Bianchi stars as Tatiana Romanova in the second James Bond film, “From Russia with Love.” Romanova is a loyal Soviet operative who thinks she’s working for the Soviets in an operation designed to pass false information to MI6. It’s her job to meet James Bond and play the role of a love struck defector. Bob Westal points out that her Italian accent was dubbed out of the film and replaced by the voice of English actress Barbara Jefford. The stunning Bianchi was Miss Rome and a Miss Universe semi-finalist but definitely pulls off the look of a Russian blonde beauty.

‘Barbarella’ featuring Jane Fonda is out on Blu-ray

It’s pretty interesting to see how hot Jane Fonda was back in the day, and “Barbarella” ranks up there as Jane’s most titillating role. In the film, Jane performs a zero-gravity striptease, seduces an angel and still has time to save the universe! Her Barbarella character is a sultry space adventurer in the ultimate sci-fi romp. The cover art for this film is just awesome.

The film is out today on Blu-ray so you can enjoy the lovely Jane in super high def on your big screen in all her late-60s big hair glory. Jane Fonda helped make this wild and outrageous film a cult classic. It was directed by Roger Vadim (Fonda’s ex-husband) and was filmed at the height of the psychedelic era.

Enjoy the two clips below.

  

Classic Raquel Welch in ‘Fareup’ on DVD

Diehard fans of classic Hollywood starlet Raquel Welch will be happy to know that another of her films has been released on DVD. In “Flareup,” Raquel stars as a go-go dancer stalked from Las Vegas to Los Angeles by the psychopathic ex-husband of her friend. The trailer above is classic, as the dancing scenes from Raquel and her amazing figure are front and center in the promotion of the film. “Flareup” was released in 1969 and isn’t a particularly memorable film, so we’re assuming only her most ardent fans will check it out. But Raquel looks amazing as usual and she delivers a solid performance.
