A Load of Hassall

Ladies & gentlemen (but mostly gentlemen, let's not kid ourselves) I give you 'The Countess Of Cleavage' Imogen Hassall

Here she is as Ayak in a publicity shot from Hammer's desperately confused prehistoric epic 'When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth', i.e. at least sixty million years before the invention of the fur bikini. And humans. 

Here she is trying to get Terry Scott the hell away from her in perhaps her best known role, as Jenny Grubb in 'Carry On Loving'. 

Sadly, film and TV audiences found it difficult to get beyond her stupendous chest, so Imogen mainly got roles where her assets were exploited rather than her acting talent. Work dried up for her as she grew older and she committed suicide in 1981. Shame.

  1. Absolutely stunning woman. What a shame she decided suicide was the only way out for her.
