"Gal" Friday & Classic Cutie! Suzy Kendall

Sticking with blond “gals” again this week, and indulging a personal pick after seeing the 1967 film To Sir, with Love, for the umpteenth time yesterday on Turner Classic Movies.

British actress Suzy Kendall is best known for her film roles of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Her attractive blond looks got her many leading roles in some fairly prestigious productions, although she increasingly appeared in lower-profile films and television series later in the 1970s, before finally retiring to spend more time with her family.

From 1968 to 1972, she was married to comedic actor Dudley Moore, and despite their divorce they remained friends throughout the rest of their lives. She hosted a memorial service for Moore when he passed away in 2002. She currently lives in London with her second husband, and their daughter Elodie Harper, is a BBC journalist.

Besides To Sir, with Love, a selection of Suzy Kendall films includes The Liquidator, Thunderball, Circus of Fear, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Assault, Fear is the Key, Torso and Adventures of a Private Eye. Suzy was always a rockingly cool chick who didn't show up nearly enough for me and now she's also added to my private gallery as this weeks official "Gal" Friday selection.
