#71 Catherine Schell

While many American B movie actresses of a certain era were Elvis girls, their European equivalents tended to be Bond girls instead. Elegant beauty Catherine Schell did her stint in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.  She also did a classic turn in Return of the Pink Panther, but was known mostly for British TV, including Dr. Who and Space 1999 (kind of a British Star Trek). Her classic looks actually reflect true nobility – her father was a Hungarian baron.
