Happy 70th Birthday Martine Beswick

Martine Beswick was born on September 26, 1941 in Port Antonio, Jamaica. Her parents were English and after her schooling she pursued a career in modeling. As often erroneously recorded Martine was not a Miss Jamaica winner. Beswick gained fame as a Bond girl, appearing in "Dr. No" (1962) and "From Russia With Love" (1963). She would go on to appear opposite Raquel Welch in "One Million Years BC" (1966) and "Dr. Jekyyl and Sister Hyde" (1971). Martine appeared in two Euro-westerns, "A Bullet for the General" (1966) and "John the Bastard" (1967). Her career continued well into the 1990s in films and TV. Still active today she participates in documentaries and is often a guest at film conventions. Beswick never married dispelling another myth was that she was married to actor John Richardson. Today we celebrate Martine Beswick’s 70th birthday.
