Julie Christie

Julie Christie, Britains darling of the sixties, Oscar winning actress, stage actress and style icon.  I have always admired her, I remember watching 'Billy Liar' with my Brother when we were quite young, he must have been around fourteen, like a lot of young men he became smitten.

  1. Julie Christie was..Is a beautiful woman. I have a friend who looks just like her.. She used to be Miss Wales, I think she may have been Miss UK too and a page three girl google Sian Adey Jones she is Julie Christie on Viagra xx

  2. I know it will make me sound dreadfully cranky, but they just don't make em like that anymore.

    And I love it that she hasn't altered her glorious face! She remains as exquisite as ever.

  3. My husband, a student at the time, was an extra on the set of 'Billy Liar' and stood behind Julie Christie in one scene. I was quite relieved when he announced that her stockings were wrinkled and her legs slightly bandy! (We've looked for him several times over the years but I think he's on the cutting room floor!)

  4. She's got that certain look that the camera just I scrolled through the images I was hoping for a current image and you came through!
    She looks even better than I imagined!

    I do so love the film Shampoo.

  5. I loved looking at these photographs. She's utterly beautiful.

  6. I loved looking at all of those old photos !
    I have always loved Julie Christie and all of her films and always wished I looked like her !
    I look nothing like her :)
    And to top off her looks, she is so very smart and kind.

  7. She's my other half's teenage pin-up and yet he married me! Am nothing like her either; wish I was!

  8. She looks like a female Peter O'Toole (Lawrence of Arabia, The Last Emperor).
