Claire Gordon

Actress

Born - 16 January 1941, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England
Died - 13 April 2015

Bubbly blonde star of UK sex comedies who also played the occasional dramatic role. A doctor's daughter, her real name and date of birth are uncertain. She made her stage debut in 1954 (later becoming the first actress to appear fully nude on the London stage) and no Claire Gordon is being recorded as being born in the UK until much later than 1941. At any rate, she was highly decorative and more talented than her roles suggested. After a debut as a harem girl in I Only Arsked! (1958), she made Surprise Package (1959), Make Mine Mink (1960), Beat Girl (1960), And Women Shall Weep (1960), star-billed in Konga (1961), Licensed to Kill (1964), Great Catherine (1968), The Dirtiest Girl I Ever Met (1970), Suburban Wives (1972) and Commuter Husbands (1974). She died from a brain tumour.
