Ingrid Pitt - R.I.P.
The fantastic Ingrid Pitt has passed on, sadly. (November 2010)
Hammer's Horror Lovely survived a concentration camp, believe it or not. She lived through the horror there and went on to star in several horror spectaculars like Countess Dracula, The Vampire Lovers and The House that Dripped Blood.
The delicious vixen was in several other films, of course, but I'll always remember her in the Hammer films. She wrecked me as a boy of 15. :)
R.I.P., Ms. Pitt!
