RIP Vivienne Chandler

British actress and photographer Vivienne Chandler died in London on June 6, 2013. Thanks to Daniel Meier who alerted me of her passing. Chandler made her first appearance on TV in ITV Playhouse in 1970 but she immediately began acting in minor parts in a number of major early 1970s films including “Lust for a Vampire”, “Duck You Sucker” and Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (all 1971). She made several small appearances in the 1980s, including the music video for "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" by the British super group ASIA in 1983, and appeared in Babies in 1997 but since then she had become a professional photographer working in the U.S. and many countries across Europe including France, Italy and the U.K.. She’s best remembered by Western fans for her appearance as Coleen, the love interest of James Coburn and David Warbeck in Sergio Leones 1971 “Duck You Sucker” where she’s seen in flashbacks.
