Brassy blonde leading lady Shirley Eaton could be labelled the British equivalent of such American "blonde bombshells" as Barbara Nichols, Joyce Jameson and Joi Lansing. From her first film appearance in 1954 onward, Eaton excelled in roles calling for equal parts comic know-how and feminine pulchritude. Later in her career, Eaton essayed a number of straight dramatic roles. Shirley Eaton is best known for her brief assignment as the unfortunate gold-painted girl in the 1964 James Bond caper Goldfinger, though it was necessary to hire a voice actress to dub over Shirley's provincial speech patterns.
