Leggy, brunette-maned pin-up actress Caroline Munro was born in 1949 in Windsor, Berkshire, England, and lived in Rottingdean near Brighton where she attended a Roman Catholic convent school. By chance, her mother and a photographer entered her picture in a "Face of the Year" competition for the British newspaper The Evening News and won. This led to modeling chores, her first job being for Vogue Magazine at age 17. She moved to London to pursue top modeling jobs and became a major cover girl for fashion and television commercials while there.Decorative bit parts came her way in such films as Casino Royale (1967) and Les Bas-fonds de Londres (1969). One of her many gorgeous photo ads earned her a screen test and a one-year contract at Paramount where she won the role of Richard Widmark's daughter in the comedy/western A Talent for Loving (1973). She first met husband/actor Judd Hamilton filming this movie but they later divorced. Also in 1969, she became the commercial poster girl for "Lamb's Navy Rum", a gig that lasted ten years. She had no lines as Vincent Price's dead wife in L'Abominable Docteur Phibes (1971) and Le Retour de l'abominable docteur Phibes (1972) which, in turn, led to a Hammer Studios contract and such low-budget spine-tinglers as Dracula 73 (1972) and Capitaine Kronos: Tueur de vampires (1974). More noticeable roles came outside the studio as the slave girl/love interest in Le voyage fantastique de Sinbad (1973), the princess in Centre Terre : 7ᵉ Continent (1976), and a lethal Bond girl in the top-notch L'espion qui m'aimait (1977). Her voluptuous looks sustained her for a bit longer but the quality of her roles did not improve with higher visibility. Later 70's and 80's roles included the lowergrade Starcrash, le choc des étoiles (1978), Maniac (1980) and Le jour des fous (1986), the last-mentioned written and directed by second husband George Dugdale, whom she married in 1990. He died in 2020.Following her marriage, she was less seen. The septuagenarian continued to perform sporadically on camera, primarily in England and often in the horror genre. Subsequent lead and supporting movie roles have included To Die For (1994), Domestic Strangers (1996), Flesh for the Beast (2003), Vampyres (2015), Cute Little Buggers (2017) and House of the Gorgon (2019) which also featured her daughter, actress Georgina Dugdale.
