In 1967, when this photo of sex symbol Raquel Welsh was taken, the steamy actress had reached international fame for her doe-skin bikini-clad role in One Million Year B.C. and was wrapping up filming Bedazzled, a British comedy starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Set in London during the swinging sixties, Bedazzled is the story of an unhappy man who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for seven wishes that, he hopes, will bring him wealth and love. Welsh was cast in the role of Lilliam Lust, the personification of … well, lust.
