When “Sex Kitten” Mamie Van Doren Met Classic Film Director Peter Bogdanovich

It’s tough to imagine that 1950’s sex kitten Mamie Van Doren turns eighty today, but her glamour and beauty continue even as the films she appeared in after that decade became schlockier.

One notable example is by the man who may very well finish Orson Welles’ final film, Peter Bogdanovich. Working as “Derek Thomas,” Bogdanovich edited a couple of Soviet sci-fi films together with new footage shot of Doren and other beauties, supposedly on the planet Venus. To ease any transitions between Russian actors and actors in a completely different film, Doren and the Venusian beauties use telepathy to communicate. Of course, when you have buxom babes in your movies, you may already have all the body language you need.
