He knew you needed to catch the fish and I needed to throw them back

Sad news that Ingrid Pitt has passed away today at the pretty decent innings of 73 years. Probably best known for her turn in cinematic classic the Wicker Man, a film so good even the remake turned out pretty great*, she also had the odd turn in Hammer vehicles and is probably best remembered for carrying the entire film as nympho nutter Countess Bathory in Hammer's Countess Dracula, which I rewatched this evening after hearing of her passing.

* This is a lie.
