RIP, Susan Bernard.

Susan Bernard
(February 11, 1948 – June 21, 2019)

Actress Susan Bernard (in the striped bikini, above), who spends most of Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) being menaced by various freaks, has passed away at 71.

Miss Bernard, the Playboy Playmate for December, 1966, was the daughter of the noted Hollywood photographer Bruno Bernard. She published a few books of her father’s incredible photographs. And she was in two episodes of The Beverly Hillbillies and a regular on General Hospital.

That’s Susan leaning on the MG in the center. That’s a 1964 Porsche 356C on the left, along with (L-R) Tura Satana, Haji, Lori Williams and a 1958 Triumph.
