Dear Patrons, years ago when many Midwest US newspapers were closing their doors, I was able to purchase photo lots from their dissolution via eBay auctions. I also have many Japanese magazine clippings that weren't published in the West and, of course, our own 1080 screen captures. These can make for some rare, and lesser-seen publicity photos. I will try to hi-res scan some of them (from Myrna Loy to Susan George, Paul Newman to Clint Eastwood, and many Film Noir actors) and will try to post one new photo archive each week for your use to print, use as computer wallpaper, etc. Last week was Suzanne Pleshette. Do you have a favorite actor you'd like a Photo Archive of? Let me know!


5' 6˝" Jacqueline Bisset (Winifred Jacqueline Fraser Bisset) claims her last name is pronounced "Bissit" and rhymes with "Kiss it". In 1977 she was described by Newsweek as "the most beautiful film actress of all time". She began her film career in 1965, making her official debut in Roman Polanski's Cul-de-sac (1966), credited as "Jackie Bisset". In 1967, the James Bond satire, Casino Royale, had Jacqueline playing Miss Goodthighs. She had roles in The Detective (when Mia Farrow dropped out), Bullitt, Airport (1970), the lesser seen The Mephisto Waltz (1971) and was considered for the role of Amy in Straw Dogs (1971) - that eventually went to Susan George. It was Truffaut's Day for Night (1973) which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film - and her fluency in French (she also speaks Italian) - that helped propel her to international acclaim. Later, in the film The Deep (1977) her wet t-shirt scenes, swimming underwater, helped propel that movie to a huge box office success. Secrets (1971) was the only film that had extensive nude scenes of Miss Bisset in her entire career. She worked continuously and she co-produced George Cukor's Rich and Famous (1981) with Candice Bergen, where Bisset played her friend, Liz Hamilton. In 1983's Class she played the role of Rob Lowe's mother who is involved in an affair with her son's friend (Andrew McCarthy). She earned a second Golden Globe nomination for her role in John Huston's Under the Volcano (1984) with Albert Finney. In 1995 she was in Claude Chabrol's La Cérémonie with Sondrine Bonnaire and Isabelle Huppert. Her performance was nominated for a César Award.

Her favorite films are Brief Encounter (1945) and Splendor in the Grass (1961), her favorite actresses are Jeanne Moreau and Jessica Lange with her favorite actors being Marlon Brando, Anthony Hopkins, and Montgomery Clift. Jacqueline Bisset has yet to marry, although has had long-term relationships with Canadian actor Michael Sarrazin, Russian dancer/actor Alexander Godunov, and 3 other partners. In 2010 she was awarded the Légion d'honneur - the highest French order of merit for military and civil merits, established in 1802 by Napoleon Bonaparte. Stunningly attractive, Miss Bisset has always imbued class, intelligence and an European flair throughout her acting career. At the writing of this, she is 75 years young and is still working today.
