Beautiful Marie Devereux was photographed partially nude when she was still a teenager. During the 1950s, she became a regular nude model in magazines. Still, she also had a brief career in films, usually playing sexy girls in comedies, dramas and horror films, a few of which were directed by distinguished filmmakers. After appearing in Terence Young’s “Serious Charge”, she was seen to good advantage in three Hammer Film productions: first, under the direction of genre master Terence Fisher, she played a follower of goddess Kali in “The Stranglers of Bombay” (1959), and she was one of the “Brides of Dracula” (1960); these were followed in 1962 by John Gilling’s “The Pirates of Blood River”, in which she played a village girl. She was also in Guy Green’s highly praised drama “The Mark (1961), and then travelled to Italy to work as Elizabeth Taylor’s stand-in in “Cleopatra” (1963), directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Devereux went to Hollywood after the production closed in Rome and appeared in television and two cult movies directed by Samuel Fuller, “Shock Corridor” (1963) and “The Naked Kiss” (1964). After these roles, she decided to marry and have children in the United States and retired from films.
