      Much loved for her Hammer credits, and her frequent ITC guest appearances (especially for The Saint).

        RIP Suzan

        A fine Hammer screamer.

          A pleasure to watch in our very tiny corner of the 13,5 billion years of the Universe. RIP

          You get the impression that because girls like Suzan often appeared in different episodes of long running stuff like the Saint, that the team liked working with them, liked their professionalism and of course they were gorgeous as well.

            Very sad news, She was lovely! I thought one of her best (& sexiest) roles was in the "Thriller" episode "Death in Deep Water" opposite Bradford Dillman.

            I wonder why her career faded in the 1980's?

            R.I.P. Susan.

              Thoughts are with billy farmer (no relation), who started her Britmovie thread, and of course deepest condolences to Suzan's family and friends. A great favourite on DVD. Better known to me for her guest roles in ITC shows than film career, to be honest. My favourite performance is probably Man in a Suitcase but the aforementioned Thriller episode was the better part. The best of her career?

              Already hundreds of tributes on Facebook. Some posters remind us that Jennifer Daniel, another Hammer actress of the mid-1960s, died recently. Her husband Dinsdale Landen co-starred with Suzan Farmer in Rasputin, the Mad Monk. There is also a fantastic contribution from Laura Wagner, who has put together a beautiful collection of photographs in memory of our beloved Suzan. Hope this link works:

                This is indeed very sad news. She was a stunner in her day and the camera loved her. She lit up the screen in everything she appeared in. A lovely lady and a talented actress. Rest In Peace, Susan.

                          Recently saw Susan in the 30 minute film TALK OF THE DEVIL (1968) on TPTV....Feeble comedy but Susan looks great in it - in colour as well.....Bound to be on again...!

                            Just found out, at the Daily Express archive, the date of my sole viewing of this still-unreleased short - ITV, 30th August 1978 from 6.30-7.00pm. Can anyone prove (hopefully with a screencap from the Talking Pictures transmission) that I'm right in thinking Tim Barrett, as the devil, is momentarily by the door of a living room where a wild party is taking place? Does he surprise Suzan by suddenly popping up, like a ghost? I'm guessing she was the hostess.

                          I hadn't realised she has passed on. I thought she was lovely and such a shame she didn't leave more films behind. Monster of Terror (1965) is one of my guilty pleasures, a 'so bad, it's good' movie
