More than Valerie My friend Keith Adams started a Valerie Leon fan page on Facebook after publishing a 1973 Motor Show photograph with the actress—and two-time Bond girl. Tonight, after uploading some screen shots from The Persuaders episode ‘The Long Goodbye’ to Keith’s page, in which Valerie guest-stars, I was reminded how many famous people were in this: Anoushka Hempel, for starters, who is a successful interior designer and hotelier now, and Madeline Smith, another Bond girl who was with Roger Moore in Live and Let Die. Here are the two ladies with Bernie and Roger.
Lancia 2000 Coupe (1971)
I’m in love. I want this in poster size and glued to my ceiling, so I can admire everything in this picture just before falling asleep.
There were two versions of the 2000 in coupé form: one built by Zagato, the other by Pininfarina. The most common form is the four door saloon, but this is way, way sexier.
