Celebrating A French Sex Kitten!
My “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” has gone around the world looking at some of the most successful Cult Movie Queens of all time – and here is an Actress with more than 100 screen credits!
Marilyn Jess was born on October 26, 1959 in Ile-de-France, France. She is an Actress who I didn’t know much about until she popped up in a film that I was highlighting to profile someone else!

Most of Marilyn’s films went straight to video, all shot in France, but she did appear in a few well known movies like this one:
