Tiffany Jones (1973)

Pete Walker (Die Screaming, MarianneFrightmareHouse of the Long Shadows) directed this movie, which is based on the comic strip by Pat Tourret and Jenny Butterworth. It fits nicely into both the comic book and spy genres.

Anouska Hempel was one of the Angels of Death in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, plus she had roles in Scars of Dracula and Black Snake before becoming an interior designer and a member of British society.

Here, she plays Tiffany Jones, a model by day and secret agent by night. This movie lives up to the tagline, “Presidents want her, Revolutionaries seek her, And that’s why she’s always taking off!”

Perhaps that’s why Hempel bought the UK rights to the film, preventing any future DVD releases or TV showings. I’m sure she’s very unhappy that it’s on Amazon Prime now.

It’s not great, but it is a time capsule of London in 1973 in a way that the Austin Powers films can only hope to create.
