I was just watching The Saint on RTV. It was an episode I had never seen before. There was a slightly minor character of a secretary (minor, because she doesn't quite make it through the entire episode. ;-D). It was all cool. AND THEN I REALIZED. It was Eunice Gayson.
Eunice Gayson is basically the queen of eyebrow-raising. And here she was, with the king of eyebrow-raising. I basically could not handle the awesomeness.
Most people probably remember Eunice Gayson as Sylvia Trench, the woman who prompted James Bond to utter his first "Bond, James Bond" on screen (in Dr. No). She also showed up in From Russia With Love and she SHOULD have come back again and again -- 'cause she's stinkin' cool!
^LOOK AT HER EYEBROW.
Anyway. This post serves no purpose (I really need to
start get back to writing purposeful posts here).
But, really. For the brief moments that Simon Templar and Eunice Gayson were raising their eyebrows together, it was like watching Fred + Ginger dance or Frankie + Annette fake surf against a screen -- PURE AWESOME.
Yeah, I don't even know what I'm saying anymore.
I was GOING to post the video of Eunice as Sylvia, but EVERY SINGLE VIDEO HAS EMBEDDING DISABLED. Even the Italian dubbed version (Connery dubbed in Italian is more than slightly hilarious) disabled embedding. SHEESH. Well, if you want to see the scene, follow this link.
And apparently, she was in a color Saint episode which I somehow have never watched (HOW?!). I need to go watch it now.
