Redheaded German leading lady Karin Dor began showing up in European films in 1955. Only a handful of Dor's straight dramatic films have been seen in America, though her more saleable Westerns, sci-fi films, and horror-melodramas have gotten much play in U.S. theaters. Of her Western appearances, the one receiving the widest exposure was her heroine stint in the two-part Winnetou (1965); her more familiar horror flicks include The Invisible Dr. Mabuse (1960) and The Face of Fu Manchu (1962). Among Karin Dor's English-language films were the James Bond opus You Only Live Twice (1967) and Hitchcock's Topaz (1969), each of which afforded the actress a spectacular death scene.
