For our Patricia Quinn fans out there, I recently added a large number of Pat video clips covering a significant portion of her body of work. From her early film roles (i.e. bit parts) we have: Up the Chastity Belt (1971) (as "Wife" whose husband is going off on the Crusades), Up the Front (1972) (as Mata Hari's maid), and The Alf Garnett Saga (1972) (slightly larger role as "Bird #2", one of the romantic interests for Alf Garnett's son-in-law and a friend). A later film role is as "Woman" in Hawk the Slayer (1980), which is actually a fairly significant part despite the lack of a proper name. Be sure to check out the awesome (*cough*) special effects in Part 4, including Pat taking out a guard with a silly string blowgun! I shit you not!
Patricia Quinn also has extensive British television credits, with the BBC and ITV. Chronologically: Van der Valk (1972) (as a dominatrix!), Shoulder to Shoulder (1974) (women's suffrage movement activist), A Christmas Carol (1977) (The Ghost of Christmas Past), The Professionals (1978) (political campaign worker and murder co-conspirator), Fox (1980) (unfaithful wife with a violent streak), Hammer House of Horror (1980) (terrific role as a barely clothed, and sometimes entirely unclothed, time traveling witch), Tales of the Unexpected (1980) (tart of a wife who helps push her husband over the edge), Minder (1982) (painter with a big loft and room for an old boyfriend), The Box of Delights (1984) (villainous woman in a children's novel adaptation), Fortunes of War (1987) (wife of an unfaithful man during WWII), and finally... Bergerac (1988) (hotel owner).
