As part of our Women In Classic Horror celebrations this month we thought we’d focus on a glamorous lady who, despite not having appeared in many fear and fantasy flicks, has still carved herself a place in horror fans hearts. Step forward Miss Valerie Leon – star of Hammer Films’ Blood From The Mummy’s Tomb (1971) as well as various Carry On films, two James Bond movies and an episode of Space:1999! This sexy seventies babe is still gorgeous and makes regular guest appearances at horror and cult film festivals across the globe including the ever popular London Film Memorabilia Convention at Westminster.
