Exotic British model-turned-actress Caroline Munro enjoyed enduring cult status for her appearances in 1970s-era horror and fantasy features like "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" (1971) and "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" (1974). Munro's roles were largely decorative and hinged on her ability to wear as little costuming on her voluptuous frame as possible, but she captured audiences' attention, which led to a modest film career that reached its apex with a brief but memorable turn in the James Bond adventure "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1976). The decline of U.K. horror sent her to America, where she languished in violent slasher pictures like "Maniac" (1980) before ending her career in bottom-of-the-barrel European genre films. But her movie roles, as well as her prolific career as a print and advertising model, afforded her a sizable fan base, which in turn assured her permanent status as a guest at conventions around the world. Though never quite a star, Caroline Munro's abundant physical charms made her a much-loved, or lusted after, figure in horror and fantasy circles.
