THRILLER's second season (1961-1962) demonstrated a particular flair for casting international actresses in a considerable variety of episodes. This was rather atypical for an American television series, and it uncannily foreshadowed impending trends in '60s feature films such as in horror movies, westerns, and especially the spy/espionage genre with their James Bond girls.

Here we have the Canadian Suzanne Lloyd, Italian Luciana Paluzzi, Audrey Dalton from Ireland, the Swiss Ursula Andress, German-born Antoinette Bower, and French Danielle De Metz alongside veteran Hollywood Patricias (Barry & Medina) as well as up-and-coming starlets Mary Tyler Moore and Elizabeth Montgomery. Black & White photos have been selected when available to acknowledge this anthology's visual tone (and that of most television around this time period):

Suzanne Lloyd

Mary Tyler Moore

Mala Powers

Luciana Paluzzi

Sue Ann Langdon

Audrey Dalton

Ursula Andress

Antoinette Bower

Elizabeth Montgomery

Patricia Medina

Danielle De Metz

I didn't have much success in locating suitable vintage photos of Patrica Barry, unfortunately, because she looked magnificent in her 3 THRILLERS that she did around her age of 40, just as over-40 Patricia Medina was stunning in both of her THIRLLERs - and they're both still with us! (the younger Elizabeth Montgomery passed away too soon...)

Name your favorite "lookers" from THRILLER!
