Corinne Clery, who played the doomed Corinne Dufour in Moonraker, turns 58 today. Nowadays, she acts mostly in Italy, where she has a TV series.

Carole Ashby doesn’t have a big acting career, nor is she famous as a Bond girl. She is of interest to me because she’s one of the many actors who have had more than one Bond film role. In Octopussy, she was one of the “Octopussy girls.” In A View to a Kill, she was the performer putting on the butterfly show in the Eiffel Tower. These multiple roles fascinate me, trivial though they are.
