Julie Ege, Miss Norway 1962 and the leading lady in several B movies of the 1970s, has died. Ege was 64.
Born in the Norwegian town of Sandnes on November 12, 1943, Ege made her screen debut in 1967 in a couple of bit parts. After a brief appearance in the James Bond flick On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, starring George Lazenby, she went on to a minor career in mostly Z-grade European films.
Among those were Every Home Should Have One (1970), starring Marty Feldman; Graham Stark’s The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins (1971), in the “Gluttony” section; Bob Kellett’s Up Pompeii (1971), in which Ege played a character named “Voluptua”; Freddie Francis’ Craze (1974), starring Jack Palance and Diana Dors; and Percy’s Progress (1974), about a man (Leigh Lawson) who got the world’s first penis implant.
In the 1980s Ege underwent a mastectomy. She trained as a health-care worker, eventually becoming a registered nurse.
I vaguely remember a movie review, no idea which one. The reviewer said, Movies like this feature a pretty girl, and this one is incredibly beautiful, named Julie Ege. Worth seeing just for her.
realy sad to hear that such beautiful woman left us.
she and martine beswick were both so sexy ,beautiful and modest,never understand that those two make it big in hollywood,at that time they and brigitte bardot and Audrey Hepburn were the most beautiful woman of that era !
see you in heaven Julie !
She was amazingly beautiful. Her films beries from nice to awful, but she still is impossible not to repair. If she can act or not is not the issue. She was adequate to the roles she was casted. And she was also a fighter. They don’t make stralets like her anymore.
