#94 Yvonne Furneaux *

* - author has her autograph

I’m a little surprised at how little I was able to find about Yvonne Furneaux. I always figured she must have been a major babe back in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

I do know that her career featured an interesting combination of B’s (sword and sandal seemed to be a particular specialty) as well as some real classics (how about La Dolce Vita and Polanski’s Repulsion?).
