Mini Bio (1)

Beautiful Marie Devereux was photographed partially nude when she was still a teenager. During the 1950s she became a regular nude model in magazines, but she also had a brief career in films, usually as a sexy girl in comedies, dramas and horror films, but under the direction of a few distinguished filmmakers. After appearing in Terence Young's "Serious Charge", she was seen to good advantage in three Hammer Film productions: first, under the direction of genre master Terence Fisher, she played a follower of goddess Kali in "The Stranglers of Bombay" (1959), and she was one of the "Brides of Dracula" (1960); these were followed in 1962 by John Gilling's "The Pirates of Blood River", in which she played a village girl. She was also in Guy Green's much praised drama "The Mark (1961), and then traveled to Italy to work as the stand-in of Elizabeth Taylor in "Cleopatra" (1963), directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Devereux went to Hollywood after the production closed in Rome, and appeared in television and two motion pictures directed by Samuel Fuller, "Shock Corridor" (1963) and "The Naked Kiss" (1964). After these roles she decided to marry and have children in the United States, and retired from films.
