Linda Christian was a minor film actress whose best role was arguably in Tarzan and the Mermaids (1947), but she found fame and notoriety through her marriage to superstar Tyrone Power and her string of highly publicised affairs. The red-haired beauty was playing small parts when she married Power, and her other lovers included actor Edmund Purdom, whom she briefly married, a racing driver, a bull-fighter and various financiers, politicians and playboys. Life magazine dubbed her “The Anatomical Bomb” and in 1959 her fame had become sufficient to earn her a place among the select group profiled in the encyclopaedic Celebrity Register, which stated, “With a sixth sense for publicity, she has parlayed a small talent for acting into an international reputation as a femme fatale.” The Independent.
