Three new photos of Carolyn Farina

I haven’t seen these photographs before. I have written about Carolyn Farina a few times on this blog (I admit to having a “screen crush” on her). These pictures were presumably taken when Metropolitan (1990) was being released. Miss Farina (the short-haired brunette) was about 26 years old.

This remains my favourite shot of her, from about the same time.

Cute

 

Apparently this scene is from a film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, Ivan’s Childhood.

OK. How did she do this?

How did actress Carolyn Farina go from this (on the left in the front in the greenish dress):

to this (leaning over, drink in hand):

I refer to her boobage, of course.

 

 

 

Here Beauty and Function Meet

[A woman wrote on Facebook: ” … artistically,
a woman’s shoulders are one of the most
beautiful sights.”]

 

Here beauty and function meet,
truly, high on a woman’s
body; shoulders like an elegant
span of bridge carrying a double
load, perhaps supported by a bra;
and sometimes a man can lend
a hand, like a good engineer;
and then use his other hand
to prop her thighs apart, just so.

James Bond and the modest beauty queen

At the age of about 24, Marguerite LeWars played an associate of Dr No in the movie of the same name.

I have referred previously to this scene, in which she plays a “freelance photographer”. She is seen here licking the bottom of a flash bulb to improve the electrical connection:

LeWars had been Miss Jamaica. She was working at Kingston Airport when she was given the role in Dr No. She refused another role:

“She was first offered the role of Miss Taro but she was reluctant because of the sexual theme involved. She was then offered the small role of Annabel Chung.”

She married well and she writes a bit.

Here is an autograph photo of her in her role in the James Bond movie, Dr No:
