Spy Vixen Week - Day #4: Senta Berger

Today's Spy Vixen is sultry Senta Berger, the statuesque Austrian beauty who, by her very presence, almost managed to save Dean Martin's otherwise disappointing third Matt Helm picture, The Ambushers.

With her 38-26-36 figure and simmering, Teutonic sexuality, Senta was a memorable femme fatale not only in the previously-mentioned Helm film, but in 1966's The Quiller Memorandum, the Eurospy caper Our Man in Marrakesh, and in episodes of the American spy-fi shows It Takes A Thief and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Her IMDb page lists over 140 screen appearances, and she's still active as an actress today.

She could have been a Bond girl.
Would not it be interesting to make a list of alternative Bond girls for every film in the series? Proposal for the COBRAS!

I'd participate in that, Johny!

Senta Berger was the name that immediately came to mind when you started this theme week, Christopher. I'm glad to see her included here.

...Let's be honest. I'm glad to look at her in any context.

She is still one of Germany's biggest television stars and has gained more than cult status! She is now a national treasure! LOL When she does a tv-series or a movie of the week the ratings are stellar!

She is my overall favorite spy chick. Really liked her It Takes a Thief appearanbces, as well as Quiller Memorandum.
