    Bummer. And I just re-watched The Deadly Bees (I’m keeping up with the Episode Guide in real time).

    I really wish Ballyhoo (or someone) could snag more interviews with MSTie actors before we lose them all.

    Their stories are almost always great.

    I remember her more for for two Hammer movies she did “The Lost Continent” and “Lust for a Vampire” plus a Bond spoof “Deadlier Than The Male” although it was really a Bulldog Drummond movie with Richard Johnson who lost out to Sean Connery when they auditioned for the first Bond movie.

    Tom Weaver is a great film historian who has managed to get interviews with a ton of stars from the 30s through the 80s. Check out his “I Was a Monster Movie Maker: Conversations with 22 SF and Horror Filmmakers” where he interviews Suzanna Leigh. His interview books are a treasure trove of MSTed actors and directors and producers.

    A few of his are definitely on my wish list. But they’re so expensive! (From Amazon, anyway–does he sell them directly from somewhere?)

    Another beautiful and talented actress that is gone too soon. Deadly Bees wasn’t one of Mst3k’s iconic episodes but Suzanna shined brightly in it. RIP.

    TDB was and is one of my favorite MST3K episodes, mostly because of the overall ’60s British wackiness and the riffing, but also because Leigh was perfect in her role. I hope she’s gone to a big farm (that was not built by a blindfolded guy on a dare) in the sky and enjoys nature walks with no bees or bitter old people.
