Black Daliah

We love Lavi!


  1. I love the fact that you know (and worship) so many semi-obscure people that I also adore. Daliah was such a striking woman. If you ever get the chance to see a movie called The High Commissioner with Christopher Plummer and Rod Taylor, she has some amazing get-ups and hair in it! Same with her Matt Helm film and most of her other 60s work.

  2. I think I've seen Ms. Lavi in exactly two movies -- her Matt Helm epic, and "Casino Royale." I fell in love with her through stills: I mean, come ON... those falls, those lashes!

    I'm surprised I'm not a drag queen, double-mascared lower lashes get me so giddy.

  3. Wasn't she fabulous!
    I love the fact that in "Lord Jim" (I'm an avowed Peter O'Toole Freak!) she was billed as, "The Girl".
    In my obvious ignorance, I always thought she was Southeast Asian or Indian; she's actually Israeli.

  4. Wow obscure but fabulously obscure. I thought I was the only one that loved this woman.
