Margaret Lee Tribute Site


Margaret Lee as a fatal attraction in the rarely seen 1971 Eurocrime film, THE ROGUE.

Please click on the Margaret Lee Tribute Site link on the sidebar to examine this site devoted to the British actress who appeared in European spy, war, horror, crime, erotic films of the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Included are numerous images of her in THE ROGUE and other exploitation features of that time period. There is also a video of ARRIVA DORELLIK (1968), an Italian produced fumetti style parody, along with vintage film posters and magazine covers on which she posed.

She has supporting roles in Jess Franco's VENUS IN FURS (1969) and THE BLOODY JUDGE (1970).

Some of my personal favorite Margaret Lee performances and films include Riccardo Freda's DOUBLE FACE (1969), Fernando Di Leo's gory sleaze-fest SLAUGHTER HOTEL (1971), VENUS IN FURS (1969), all of which featured her alongside the legendary Klaus Kinski. She's also charming in such Eurospy items as Franco Prosperi's DICK SMART 2.007 (1967) and Giorgio Ferroni's NEW YORK CALLING SUPERDRAGON (1966). And she's just terrific as the sensual, deadly darling in the Yugoslavian lensed THE ROGUE, which I someday hope has a decent R1 DVD presentation.
I have been told that she now lives in California.

The Margaret Lee Yahoo Group has a bunch of Screenshots and posters from her films! Maybe you could post the Yahoo Group Link? http://groups.yahoo.com/group/margaretlee_actress/
It is occasionally active and needs some posts of where this elusive beauty's whereabouts are these days. I have heard that she was involved with a real life murder in Italy some years ago that brought an end to her career.

Thanks for the link. I'm not sure exactly what happened to her after a certain period.

I had heard from an actor who worked with her in the 1960s that she had some kind of problem with authorities of a certain European country, drug related, but I'm not sure if the charges were dropped or not, and I had heard about later legal problems, but the details were sketchy. She posed for men's magazines after her film career ended. Today, I think she wants to leave all that in the past. She's a talented, lovely ladey. I wish her well.
