RIP, Karin Dor.

Karin Dor
(February 22, 1938 – November 6, 2017)

I love You Only Live Twice (1967). And I hated to see that Karin Dor, seen above with Sean Connery, had passed away.

With Lex Barker in The Torture Chamber Of Dr. Sadism (1967).

Like so many of the Bond girls from the 60s, Ms. Dor appeared in a lot of other cool things. You’ll also find her in The Face Of Fu Manchu (1965) with Christopher Lee, Hitchcock’s Topaz (1969), and a number of German films co-starring Lex Barker — such as The Invisible Dr. Mabuse and The Treasure Of The Silver Lake (both 1962). From time to time, she even turns up in American TV shows like Ironside and The FBI.

  1. Oh, that’s indeed sad news. I first became aware of her in the Danish/German krimi movies based on the Edgar Wallace tales, and made a mental note to look out for other examples of her work. Like so many other resolutions . . .


    • The piranhas getting her in You Only Live Twice is one of those movie moments that was seared into my brain as a kid. Piranhas and quicksand loomed large in my young movie geekdom.

    I know it is an unintentional typo, Toby – Les Baxter is of course Lex Barker….
