Shrine of Smith | A Gallery Devoted to Madeline Smith

After a fleeting modelling career, Madeline Smith was memorable in all three of her Hammer roles: prostitute Dolly in TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA, sexually naïve Emma in THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, and mute Sarah in FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL. A Bond girl - playing Italian agent Miss Caruso - under personal recommendation from Roger Moore for his debut 007 adventure LIVE AND LET DIE, Smith subsequently spent most of the 1970's as the archetypal British crumpet in numerous TV light entertainment programmes. Her impish, innocent persona, together with spectacular figure - allegedly boosted by liberal amounts of muesli yogurt - means that the actress enjoys a loyal fan base to this day.

Madeline vs. J. Edward Oliver

British cartoonist J. Edward Oliver achieved fame in the 70's with a strip in Disc (and Music Echo) which became Record Mirror. Including film, TV and music personalities, one favoured celebrity was Smith. When the actress complained about her portrayals, Oliver stopped drawing her ... but not before one last strip about the call he received from the starlet. Smith's complaint, however, seems in contrast to her more recent reminisces, where the actress embraces her label of prime 70's crumpet. Oliver also created strips for Buster, Whizzer and Chips and Whoopee.
