Spy Vixen Week - Day #6: Daniela Bianchi

After her historic role as the girl who came to Sean Connery's 007 From Russia With Love in 1963, Italian beauty queen Daniela Bianchi appeared in several notable Eurospy flicks before retiring from the screen just five years later.

The most well-known of these is Operation Kid Brother (OK Connery) where she starred opposite Sean's brother Neil in an all-out spoof of the 007 film phenomenon. But her best genre appearance - in my opinion - was as the titular villainess of Special Mission Lady Chaplin, the third and best of Ken Clark's 077 trilogy. As the eponymous Lady Chaplin, Miss Bianchi was a delightful femme fatale, employing a vast repertoire of deceptions and double crosses to keep her opponents off balance - and looking great doing it!

Other spy-fi flicks that she graced with her elegant beauty include Code Name: Tiger, Operation Gold, and Requiem for a Secret Agent.
