        R.I.P. Karin.

        I have seen Topaz and You Only Live Twice, on VHS recordings back in the late 1980s I think, but a film called Target for Killing caught the eye as I browsed her filmography. Her leading man was Stewart Granger and their co-stars include Rupert Davies and Klaus Kinski (both of whom would soon appear in the recently-viewed Edgar Wallace movie Five Golden Dragons). I look forward to watching this thriller on YouTube when the time is right*.

        Erika Remberg, lovely Austrian actress, was also in the film and I have just learned, from that link to the film's Wikipedia page, that she died just four days after darling Karin. 2016 was considered a bad year for Entertainment deaths but if you think back to who we've lost (from Barry Norman to Roger Moore to David Cassidy last night), this has been far worse.

        In all honesty, I don't really know Karin Dor all that well but will certainly try my best to catch up with her screen work.
