BABE OF THE DAY - DALIAH LAVI...



In case you're wondering, DALIAH LAVI appeared
in DEAN MARTIN's first of four MATT HELM movies,
THE SILENCERS in 1965.  No doubt she's appeared in
a great deal more than that, but you'll have to look that
info up for yourself 'cos I'm far too busy swooning.

I swooned when I saw her naked (except for straps covering the "naughty bits") in the 60s Casino Royale

Aha! I knew I'd seen her somewhere else! Ta, Britt.

Didn't she have a massive beehive a la Night Girl from the LSH? Fascinating looking woman. I remember one Matt Hel movie where the bad guy threw her across the room [it was a slippery dancefloor iirc] and she went FLYING!
What is she doing these days, I heard she married a diplomat or something.

Karl, I think she's now in her early 70s, and I have the impression that she was also a singer. Yeah, I thinks she did have a beehive - she'd have made a good Modesty Blaise.

Ah, Casino Royale..."I'm the new secret weapon - and I've just been developed."

She was also quite good in Some Girls Do, a Bulldog Drummond film from the late 60s.

Ah, Bulldog Drummond. I remember watching the old b&w films, BS - BD's sidekick, played by Reginald Denny, was Commodore Schmidlapp in the 1966 Batman movie, his last role. (He also played King Boris in episodes 11 & 12 of the TV series.) I'll keep an eye out for Some Girls Do.

IIRC, she wore a sort of beehive hairdo in Some Girls Do.

She was in the first Matt Helm movie, The Silencers, in 1966. That was where she got knocked across the dance floor in that fight scene.

Her last movie was the spaghetti western Catlow (1971). After that, she focused on her career as a cabaret singer in Europe. The last I heard, she was living in the US with her husband, a businessman who runs some sort of plastics company.

I think that's where I first saw her - The Silencers. I was only a kid, but I was mighty impressed by how sultry she was.

The 1967 version of Casino Royale was an overblown mess, but, on the plus side, it did have Daliah, Joanna Pettet, Ursula Andress, "Jacky" Bisset, and Gabriella Licudi.

I can't watch it - it's truly awful.
