Photo of the Day

Andromeda (Judi Bowker) is unaware that someone is looking at her while she sleeps in CLASH OF THE TITANS

In this scene Perseus is wearing a magical helmet which makes him invisible and he has entered Andromeda's bedroom and he's looking at her while she sleeps. I always wondered, back then and still today, if this was intended to be a pervy kind of thing. The way it's filmed in COTT it's made to look sorta harmless but take for example another identical scene in SALAMMBO where the horny hero clearly looks at a sleeping Salammbo with lustful intent and there was no question that sex was in his mind. I guess it can go either way: as a simple 'sleeping beauty' kind of harmless fantasy shot or it can be a horny pervy kind of thing.

Judi was also in Zeffirelli's BROTHER SUN, SISTER MOON but I don't remember seeing Judi in anything else after this.

I've seen Judy pop up in various movies since COTT, mainly costume dramas like "Anna Karenina" and "The Shooting Party". I remember her most vividly from BBC's rather effective "Dracula", with Louis Jordan as the count and Judy as Mina.
