Claire Bloom topless in A Severed Head (1970 or 1971)

What a life she has led. She won both a film BAFTA and a TV BAFTA. She was married to outsized personalities like actor Rod Steiger and author Philip Roth. She had a famous romance with the even more outsized Richard Burton, and even one with Lord Olivier himself. She has a daughter who is a successful opera singer. She wrote two memoirs. The first was a serious book about her career: “Limelight and After: The Education of an Actress” (1982). The second one was a controversial tell-all called “Leaving a Doll’s House: A Memoir” (1996).

She is still with us, aged 90, and supposedly has a new movie in the pipeline.

  1. She’s 40 years old here. I first saw her in Alexander the Great in ’56. Even at eight I was impressed. Always one of the under-appreciated lookers as well as great actresses.
    And still around at 90 having outlived three ex-husbands. Old enough to have been bombed out during the Blitz.
