In the book she's a beast of a woman, a sort of Fleming evil mamma type. I'm glad the film cast against type, it's probably the best casting decision in there tbh!
Rossella Falk as Mrs Fothergill the psychotic killer in 'Modesty Blaise" is a stand out actress in this film and is well worth watching just to see her performance. Bob Taylor Portland, Oregon USA
