In my haste to write my previous post, I totally forgot that former Playboy Playmate Anne Randall (whom I interviewed for my book Glamour Girls of Sixties Hollywood) was also in Jacques Demy’s Model Shop playing a model that aired last night. Below are her comments about the movie:
“This was wonderful and one of my favorite memories! Jacques Demy was a very nice man and easy to work with. I worked with Gary Lockwood and found him to be very professional. By that, I mean, he didn’t ‘hit on’ me. I didn’t get to know him and I really can’t remember any kind of exchange with him.
I remember hanging out on the set with an unknown actress who was visiting Jacques Demy and his wife. I thought she was absolutely stunning and a sweet person. She had a beautiful face and a great body—very tan with smooth skin. She was wearing a flimsy mini sundress and sandals with bare legs and no bra. I thought, ‘She’s going to be a huge sex symbol!’ Her name was Sharon Tate. Sharon was there all day and we got to know each other. She was so nice and so beautiful.”
