Description

Gillian Hills gives us a detailed insight into her early life in film, music and art where she was discovered in France by legendary film director, screenwriter, Roger Vadim; the director of ‘And God Created Woman’ and ‘Barbarella’, who saw her as the next Brigitte Bardot and cast her in a version of ‘Les Liaisons Dangereuses’ (1959).


Gillian went on to become a sixties film icon appearing in movies like ‘Beat Girl’, her first film at just 15, in England. ‘Beat Girl’ (1960) tells the story of a young rebellious teenager who spends her nights clubbing and dancing to rock & roll. This was John Barry’s first film score. Her co-star was a young Adam Faith and Oliver Reed in their first credited film roles.


Gillian also played other key film roles in the classics ‘Blow Up’ (1966) and Stanley Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’ (1971) which she discusses in extensive detail with the renowned film critic Anna Smith.
