Biography by Hal Erickson

Sensuous leading lady Barbara Bach began her film career in Italy in 1972. Her first English-language film was Wolf Larsen, a 1975 version of Jack London's The Sea Wolf. She became a pin-up and fold-out "fave" after co-starring in the 1977 James Bond adventure The Spy Who Loved Me. Barbara Bach is the second wife of Beatle Ringo Starr, with whom she appeared in the raucous prehistoric farce Caveman (1979).
