Saucy 70’s Actress Suzy Mandel! Her “Deep Throat” Meets “Singing In The Rain” Movie!

Ready For Some Classic British “Nudge Nudge Wink Wink?”

Here is a genre of 70’s films that is either loved or loathed – the British sex comedy!

Time to meet Actress Suzy Mandel – who appeared in some of the most well known of that era!

She was born Jacqueline Ann Elaine Jefcoate in London England in 1953.

According to the terrific website IMDB.com, Suzy graduated in 1968 from “The London Modelling Academy.”

Her modeling career flourished when she won the title of “Miss Benson and Hedges”, “Miss Teenage London” and “Miss TV Times”!

As with many beautiful young Models at the time, she ended up in The Sun newspaper as a “Page 3 Girl” as well as many other British men’s magazines of that era:

Suzy ultimately had two dozen film credits, including the longest running British film of all time! More on that in a moment!

She appeared in a number of TV shows and films with small parts before having a larger role in this 1976 sex comedy “Intimate Games”

That film also starred Anna Bergman – yes, acclaimed Director Ingmar Bergman’s daughter!

See her freewheeling career here:

For Suzy, next up was a series of British sex comedies that were hugely popular at the time!

“Adventures Of A Plumber’s Mate”

This 1978 film was a perfect “nudge nudge wink wink” sex comedy the British became famous for: including the “Confessions” series that she appeared in:

She also appeared on the ribald 70’s TV series “Benny Hill”, and in 1977 had a role in Mary Millington’s record-breaking cult classic:

“Come Play With Me” is the single longest -running movie in British film history!

This goofy sex comedy starred Mary Millington, perhaps the most notorious Nude Model / Actress of 70’s England:

“The Playbirds” also starred Millington and Mandel as well – more sexy shenanigans!

The film was loaded with wall-to-wall nude Actresses, and Millington’s name ensured it would be a smash!

Sadly, Millington’s world came crashing down around her – a terrific box set of her films includes a terrific documentary as well – click here for the whole story:

After a great career in England in the 70’s, Suzy married and relocated to California where she continued to work.

A Very X-Rated “Blonde Ambition!”

Now, a very controversial film appearance for Suzy…which has been described as “Singing In The Rain Meets Deep Throat!”

Suzy stars in this film, which is described by IMDB.com this way:

“Two young song and dance performers are offered a real job in New York. They get a lift from a millionaire. When they get there there is no job. The millionaire lets them stay in his apartment. They finally get a part in an X rated version of Gone With the Wind. Unfortunately, Candy’s ‘blondeness’ takes over, and the whole production ends in a riotous shambles.”

The film not only has plenty of nudity, but there are graphic sex scenes as well!

Suzy claims a body double was used for the hardcore sex scene! Most online biographies say that was the case, but there were still plenty of wild scenes for the Actress!

After this, Suzy’s career ended – her last film was an uncredited role in “The Sword And The Sorcerer” in 1982.

She ultimately retired from acting, and got involved in caring for AIDS patients

Her “Pussy Talk” Poster!

One last piece of trivia about Suzy, thanks to “Gavcrimson” at IMDB:

With her consent, her image was used in the UK cinema–and later video–artwork for the 1975 film “Pussy Talk” – a film she never appeared in!

That’s right, this graphically named film has her prominently on the poster even though she’s not in the film!

Bravo Suzy for a memorable career!

Felicity Devonshire was also in “Intimate Games” – what a terrific cast in that movie!

Corinne Russell also appeared on the hit TV series “Benny Hill”:

Corinne was also a “Page 3” girl – what a unique career – so what happened to her?

  2. Have you ever done a profile on actress Tina Aumont? A wide-eyed beauty who did her share of Euro-rotica, as well as working with class filmmakers like Fellini. She was the daughter of French actor Jean-Pierre Aumont, and did an especially scintillating bondage scene in the sci-fi movie ‘Lifespan’. Always curious to know more about her and her career.

  3. That took me back to the heyday of British ‘soft porn’ at the cinema, John. Those films were truly awful! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
