From Biba to Bond with Madeline Smith


Thanks to the wonderful Twitter, my attention has been drawn to this lovely event taking place next month in London. The Walthamstow Women's Institute, the Stow Roses, are hosting an evening with the gorgeous Madeline Smith. Madeline has enjoyed an extremely sucessful career in British film, stage and television which of course has included outings with the Carry On team, James Bond and Hammer Horror. 

An engaging and humorous raconteur, Maddy Smith brings to Walthamstow an evening of conversation about her life and career as model and actress in the 1960s and beyond. 

A temporary job at famous London fashion boutique, Biba, led to encouragement from Biba founder, Barbara Hulanicki, for Maddy to enter the world of modelling. Acting roles soon followed, first in Hammer Film Productions, then in a vast array of film, TV and stage roles, including her most high profile role, at Sir Roger Moore's personal request, as his first ever Bond girl, Miss Caruso, in 'Live and Let Die.'

Join Maddy for an evening of tales from stage and screen as she recalls her days starring alongside the likes of Ava Gardner, Peter Cushing, Frankie Howerd. the Two Ronnies, Alec Guinness, Leslie Phillips, the Carry On team and many more.
