From A View To A Kill’s Alison Doody

Alison`s two biggest film credits have been acting opposite James Bond: Roger Moore in A VIEW TO A KILL, and the original James Bond, Sean Connery, in INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE. Unfortunately, in both films, Alison`s character meets an untimely demise and she doesn`t get the guy.

As Jenny Flex, Alison got to engineer Tibbet`s death, set San Francisco City Hall on fire and send California into the Pacific Ocean; or at least try. She ended up drowning in a mine cave-in, a victim of Zorin`s betrayal, but never has villainy looked so sexy. Together with her tag team partners of Grace Jones and Papillon Soo Soo, mayhem abounded.

As Elsa Schneider, Alison got to do all the betraying four years later in INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE. Sleeping with both Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, she led the two on wild goose chases across Italy and Africa before meeting her doom due in yet another earthquake.

INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE looked like the film that would put Alison over the top and make her a star. After all, she only had a few lines in A VIEW TO A KILL, and with her role in `CRUSADE`, she made the most of it. Allison Doody has retired from films for the time being. She had a featured role was in 1994`s MAJOR LEAGUE II.
