Sylvia Kristel (born 28 September 1952) is a Dutch actress, model and singer. Her most famous role is in the French film Emmanuelle.
Kristel was born in Utrecht, Netherlands, as the daughter of Piet and Jean-Nicholas, who ran an inn in Utrecht. In her 2006 autobiography Nue she claims to have been sexually abused by an elderly guest at the hotel at the age of nine, an event which she has refused to discuss in detail. Her parents divorced when she was 14 years old after her father left home for another woman. “It was the saddest thing that ever happened to me”, she says of the experience of her parents’ separation. She has a younger sister, Marianne.
Kristel began modeling when she was 17. She entered the Miss TV Europe contest in 1973 and won. She speaks Dutch, English, French, German and Italian. She gained international attention in 1974 for playing the title character in the softcore film Emmanuelle which remains one of the most successful French films ever produced.
Kristel found herself typecast as Emmanuelle and often played roles that capitalised upon that image, most notably starring in an adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1981) and a nudity filled biopic of World War I spy Mata Hari in which she played the title role. Her Emmanuelle image followed her to the United States where she played Nicole Mallow, a maid who seduces a teenage boy, in the controversial 1981 sex comedy Private Lessons. One of her only other mainstream American film appearances was a brief comic turn in the Get Smart revival film The Nude Bomb in 1980.
Although Private Lessons was one of the highest grossing independent films of 1981 (ranking #28 in US Domestic Gross), Kristel saw none of the profits. She continues to appear in movies and last played Emmanuelle in the early 1990s. In May 1990 she appeared in the television series My Riviera, filmed at her home in St Tropez and offering insights of her life and motivations in an interview with writer-director Michael Feeney Callan. In May 2006, Kristel received an award at the Tribeca Film Festival, New York for directing the animated short film “Topor and Me”, written by Ruud Den Dryver. The award was presented by Gayle King.
After not having acted for eight years, Kristel played a part in the movie Two Sunny Days in 2010 and in the same year she played the mother of the Trio Lescano in the TV series The Swing Girls.
In September 2006 Sylvia Kristel’s autobiography Nue (Nude) was published in France. It was translated into English as Undressing Emmanuelle: A Memoir, by Fourth Estate, 2 July 2007. In it she tells of a turbulent personal life blighted by addictions to drugs, alcohol, and her quest for a father figure which resulted in some harmful relationships with older men. The book received some positive reviews.
Her first major relationship was with Hugo Claus, a Belgian author twenty-seven years her senior with whom she had a son, Arthur, born in 1975. She left him for Ian McShane, ten years her senior, whom she met on the set of the 1979 film The Fifth Musketeer. They moved in together in Los Angeles where he had promised to help her launch her American career. However their five year affair would lead to no significant career break for Kristel but a relationship she describes in her autobiography as “awful – he was witty and charming but we were too much alike.” About two years into the relationship she began using cocaine. This proved to be her downfall, though at the time she thought of it as a “supervitamin, a very fashionable substance, without danger, but expensive, far more exciting than drowning in alcohol – a fuel necessary to stay in the swing.”
Interviewed in 2006 for the documentary Hunting Emmanuelle, she describes how, nurturing an expensive cocaine habit, she made a number of poor decisions, including agreeing to sell her interest in Private Lessons to her agent on a whim for $150,000. With a domestic gross of over $26 million, she laughs at how much of her agent’s mansion her percentage probably paid for.
Since McShane, she has been married twice, first to an American businessman which ended after five months and then to film producer Phillippe Blot. She spent a decade with Belgian radio producer Fred De Vree before he died.
A heavy smoker of unfiltered cigarettes from the age of eleven, Kristel was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2001 and underwent three courses of chemotherapy, and surgery after it spread to her lung. On June 12, 2012 Kristel suffered a stroke and was hospitalized in life threatening condition. —Wikipedia
Alexandra Bastedo (born 9 March 1946, Hove, Sussex, England) is a British actress, best known for her role as secret agent Sharron Macready in the 1968 British espionage/science fiction adventure series The Champions. She has been cited as a sex symbol of the 1960s and ’70s.
According to her official website, her mother was of French, German and Italian descent. Her Canadian-born father was of Spanish, Dutch, Scottish and native Indian extraction. She attended Brighton and Hove High School and [Brighton] School of Drama. Her husband Patrick Garland was the longest serving director of the Chichester Festival Theatre.With Kenneth Fleet, the Festival Theatre Chairman, Patrick Garland was responsible for raising the £1,000,000 through Nissan for the Minerva Theatre. Without subsidies he ran the theatre most successfully for 8 years. In 1980 Alexandra married Patrick Garland.
Bastedo gained fame on the European continent, earning her the nickname, “La Bastedo”. Although most familiar to viewers of 1960s TV, she was also famous for her multilingual skills, speaking Italian, Spanish, French and German. This skill brought her to the door of 10 Downing Street to assist with translations and landed her the role of co-presenter of Miss World competitions with Peter Marshall in the 1980s. In the early 1990s she appeared in an episode of Absolutely Fabulous playing a 1960s model associate of Edina and Patsy. In 1991 she appeared in a notable production of the psychological thriller Dangerous Obsession by N. J. Crisp, opposite Marc Sinden and John Challis, at the Mill at Sonning.
In an interview on the BBC television series Where Are They Now? Bastedo provided a glimpse into her private life. She used to be the president of her local RSPCA branch, but gave up her position3 in 2008 so she could dedicate more time to her own fast-growing animal sanctuary at her home in West Chiltington, West Sussex. A journalist, who interviewed her husband in 2010, described their domestic surroundings:
Bastedo has written a memoir, Beware Dobermanns, Donkeys and Ducks, as well as several books on caring for cats and dogs.
In 2006 Bastedo was reunited for the first time with her co-stars from The Champions to provide commentaries and an interview for a DVD release of the show. Still working as an actress, she appeared in Batman Begins, and touring theatres in 2006 with a production of Beyond Reasonable Doubt alongside Leslie Grantham and Simon Ward. In 2008 she joined the cast of EastEnders playing “Cynthia”. In January 2008 she appeared as co-presenter (with Ed Stewart) of “The Magic of Mantovani” at Lighthouse, Poole. The success of this concert led, the following year, to a second concert at Lighthouse in Poole, with the Mantovani Orchestra, which she again co-presented.
Bastedo is a breast cancer survivor. Her younger brother, Lindsay, died following a long battle with cancer.

“We have made our big outdoor pictures in all parts of the country where we could find beautiful locations, but Idaho especially Priest Lake, has the most wonderful and beautiful scenery for our work to be found anywhere in the United States, and we can work there for the next ten years and never use the same location twice.”
Nell Shipman (October 25, 1892 – January 23, 1970) was a Canadian actress, author and screenwriter, producer, director, and animal trainer. She was a Canadian pioneer in early Hollywood. She is best known for her work in James Oliver Curwood stories and for portraying strong, adventurous women. In 1919, she and her producer husband, Ernest Shipman, made the most successful silent film in Canadian history, Back to God’s Country. She was one of the first women to do a nude scene on screen when she did so in that movie.
Shipman was born Helen Foster-Barham in Victoria, British Columbia. Her family moved to Seattle, Washington when Nell was 13 years old. Around the same time, Nell started stage acting and joined theatrical stock companies before working in film. When Nell was 18 years old, she met and married 39 years old theatrical entrepreneur, Ernest Shipman (December 17, 1871 – August 7, 1931).
After marrying, Ernest and Nell Shipman moved to Hollywood to start working in the film industry. During this time, Nell sold the rights of her book, Under the Crescent Moon to Universal Studios (they wanted to make a six film serial of the story). Nell also started acting in Universal, Selig & Vitagraph productions. Between 1915–1918, she played several leading roles including her big debut film God’s Country and the Woman (1915). In God’s Country and the Women, Nell Shipman directed, produced, and acted in the film based on James Oliver Curwood’s short story. Nell was one of the first directors to shoot her films almost entirely on location.
In 1918, Nell Shipman suffered from Spanish influenza and nearly died. During her recovery, she decided to create a production company called Shipman Curwood Producing Company. The first and only film the company would produce was major Canadian silent film hit Back to God’s Country (1919). This film was based on another short story written by Curwood and adapted to the screen by Nell herself. Nell also was the lead of the film and it featured a controversial nudity scene. Although the film was extremely successful (posting a 300% profit by grossing a million and a half dollars), Curwood was infuriated with Nell because she changed the scenario of his short story. She adapted the protagonist of the film from the Great Dane, Wapi to the female lead, Delores. Shipman also shaped her character into a heroine: she saved the male lead and in so doing created an independent character and feminist role model.
In 1920, Nell and Ernest Shipman were divorced. During this time, Nell moved back to Hollywood and created Nell Shipman Productions with Bert Van Tuyle as her co-director. She focused on the major themes she enjoyed: wild animals, nature, feminist heroes, and filming on location. When she was younger, she started to develop a respect toward animals, fought for animal rights in Hollywood, and spoke out against animal cruelty. The production company produced only four films. In 1921, the film The Girl From God’s Country was removed from Nell’s control and was cut back from twelve reels to seven; when it released it was considered a box office failure.
When she was living in Spokane, Washington, Nell Shipman made a film called The Grub Stake, which costs around $180,000 to produce. Unfortunately, the film was never distributed. The American distributor went bankrupt and during subsequent litigation, the film got involved. During this time, Nell tried to maintain her production company by making several short films in Priest Lake, Idaho. However, because of the bankruptcy, Nell’s production company collapsed. In 1925, she was forced to send her animals to the San Diego Zoo because she was unable to afford the cost of maintaining them.
Shipman next moved across the country and traveled the world. Eventually, she started writing scripts and short stories. The most notable contribution at this time was the story which became the basis of Wings in the Dark starring Myrna Loy and Cary Grant (1934). Nell finally moved to the California desert and continued writing there for the rest of her life. Her last project was her autobiography, The Silent Screen and My Talking Heart. She died in Cabazon, California at the age of 77.
Nell Shipman lived for three years in what is known today as The Doctor’s House Museum in Glendale, California, from 1917 to 1920. She described it as on a “tree lined dirt road, away from the hub bub of Hollywood”. It was here that her mother died of the flu epidemic.
The Canadian playwright Sharon Pollock was commissioned to write a one act play about Shipman’s life. It was performed in 1999 by the Theatre Junction Resident Company of Artists in Calgary, and was directed by Brian Richmond.
All of Nell Shipman’s surviving films are available on DVD from Boise State University.—Wikipedia

Graciela Borges started her career in the late 50s playing important roles in films. Perhaps, her most successful role then was “Una Cita con la Vida” (1956) with leading actress Gilda Lousek. Borges had an outstanding performance in the movie “Cronica de una Señora” (1970) where she played an aristocratic bored woman. This film, as many others Mrs. Borges has made in the 70s, was directed by Raúl De La Torre.
In television, Borges was in a successful soap opera “Tres Destinos” (1966) with leading actresses Elsa Daniel, Marcela Lopez Rey, and Maria Aurelia Bisutti. In the 70’ s she played many main characters in " Alta Comedia". In 1994 she appeared in many episodes of “Alta Comedia” as well such as “La Casa” directed by Maria Herminia Avellaneda and with actors Jorge Marrale, Delfy De Ortega, Elena Tasisto, and Boy Olmi.
Untill these days, Mrs. Borges is still playing main roles in different films. Also, she is still appearing in important TV shows.—IMDb

Joe Don Baker
Joe Don Baker (born February 12, 1936) is an American character actor, perhaps best known for his roles as a Mafia hitman in Charley Varrick, deputy sheriff Thomas Jefferson Geronimo III in Final Justice, real-life Tennessee Sheriff Buford Pusser in Walking Tall, brute-force-with-a-badge detective Mitchell in Mitchell, James Bond villain Brad Whitaker in The Living Daylights, CIA Agent Jack Wade in the James Bond films GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies and the brilliant and tough NYPD Chief of Detectives Earl Eischied in television police drama, Eischied.
Baker was born in Groesbeck, Texas, the son of Edna (née McDonald) and Doyle Charles Baker. He attended the University of North Texas. In 1964 he appeared on stage in Marathon ‘33 at the ANTA Theatre in New York City. He got his start in acting as an uncredited character in the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke and as an illiterate vending machine robber in a 1969 episode of the TV series Mod Squad, but his real beginnings came when he scored the role of Steve McQueen’s younger brother in Sam Peckinpah’s Junior Bonner. He later starred in the 1973 film Walking Tall, directed by Phil Karlson and also starring in the filmmaker’s final work, Framed, two years later. Baker was offered a cameo in the remake, but declined the offer.
His work in 1973’s Charley Varrick may remain Baker’s most memorable success. Baker was praised for a courageous and offbeat portrait of the sadistic hitman Molly. The film starred Walter Matthau as the bank robber Varrick, and won a British Academy Award.
Baker has given many outstanding performances in a career spanning four decades. In 1980, he became the first actor to receive $1,000,000 to star in a television series, the short-lived Eischeid.
He was “The Whammer,” a baseball player modeled after Babe Ruth, in the 1984 baseball drama The Natural that starred Robert Redford. In a scene, the Whammer takes three swings at pitches from the young Roy Hobbs to try to impress a mysterious woman they have met on a train.
In 1985, he portrayed the corrupt Chief Jerry Karlin in Fletch. In the UK, Baker is probably best known as CIA agent Darius Jedburgh from the BBC Television drama serial Edge of Darkness. He was nominated for “Best Actor” by the British Academy Television Awards, losing to his co-star Bob Peck.
Martin Scorsese directed him as a private detective in 1991’s Cape Fear, hired by a man (Nick Nolte) whose family is being threatened by a psychopathic ex-convict (Robert DeNiro).
While actor Carroll O’Connor was undergoing heart bypass surgery, Baker took his place on the television series In the Heat of the Night. Baker appeared as Captain Tom Dugan, a retired police captain who filled in while O’Connor’s character was away at a police convention. Recently, he has appearances in “Joe Dirt” “The Dukes of Hazzard” “Strange Wilderness.” Baker plays “King” in “Mud” with Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Sam Shepard. Directed by Jeff Nichols, opening in 2012. Marking his 45th year as a film actor.
In 1987, Baker got the role of the villain Brad Whitaker in the Bond film The Living Daylights, starring Timothy Dalton as James Bond. In 1995 and 1997 Baker returned to the series, this time playing a different character, CIA agent Jack Wade, in GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies with Pierce Brosnan as Bond. This makes Baker one of three actors to appear as both a Bond ally and a villain, the others being Charles Gray who appeared as Henderson in You Only Live Twice and as Blofeld in Diamonds Are Forever and Walter Gotell who appeared as Morzeny, the Spectre Island trainer in From Russia with Love and General Gogol, head of the KGB in six films between 1977 and 1987.
The character of Wade is similar to that of CIA agent Darius Jedburgh, played by Baker in the 1985 serial Edge of Darkness. This serial was directed by Martin Campbelland considered by several critic’s to be his best work. Campbell also cast Baker as Wade in GoldenEye.
In 2009, Baker delivered another performance in The Cleaner on A&E, playing an alcoholic military veteran attempting to help a friend cope with the loss of his son, hires William Banks (played by Benjamin Bratt) for assistance in order to start back down the road to sobriety.

“War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography.”
Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (born June 24, 1842; died sometime after December 26, 1913) was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist, and satirist. Today, he is probably best known for his short story “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” and his satirical lexicon The Devil’s Dictionary. His vehemence as a critic, his motto “Nothing matters” and the sardonic view of human nature that informed his work all earned him the nickname “Bitter Bierce”.
Despite his reputation as a searing critic, Bierce was known to encourage younger writers, including poet George Sterling and fiction writer W. C. Morrow. Bierce employed a distinctive style of writing, especially in his stories. His style often embraces an abrupt beginning, dark imagery, vague references to time, limited descriptions, impossible events and the theme of war.
In 1913, Bierce traveled to Mexico to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution. While traveling with rebel troops, he disappeared without a trace. -Wikipedia

Robert E. Howard
“Barbarianism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is the whim of circumstance. And barbarianism must ultimately triumph”
Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American author who wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is probably best known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery subgenre.
Howard was born and raised in the state of Texas. He spent most of his life in the town of Cross Plains with some time spent in nearby Brownwood. A bookish and intellectual child, he was also a fan of boxing and spent some time in his late teens bodybuilding, eventually taking up amateur boxing himself. From the age of nine he dreamed of becoming a writer of adventure fiction but did not have real success until he was twenty-three. Thereafter, until his death at the age of thirty by suicide, Howard’s writings were published in a wide selection of magazines, journals, and newspapers, and he had became successful in several genres. Although a Conan novel was nearly published into a book in 1934, his stories never appeared in book form during his lifetime. The main outlet for his stories was in the pulp magazine Weird Tales.
Howard’s suicide and the circumstances surrounding it have led to varied speculation about his mental health; from an Oedipus complex, to clinical depression, to no mental disorders of any kind. His mother had been ill with tuberculosis his entire life; upon learning that she had entered a coma from which she was not expected to wake, he, for reasons that are not clear, walked out to his car and shot himself in the head.
Howard created Conan the Barbarian, in the pages of the Depression-era pulp magazine Weird Tales, a character whose pop-culture imprint has been compared to such icons as Tarzan, Count Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond. With Conan and his other heroes, Howard created the genre now known as sword and sorcery, spawning a wide swath of imitators and giving him an influence in the fantasy field rivaled only by J. R. R. Tolkien and Tolkien’s similarly inspired creation of high fantasy. Howard remains a highly read author, with his best works endlessly reprinted. He has been compared to other American masters of the weird, gloomy and spectral, such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, and Jack London. -Wikipedia
