As I posted on a thread in the main website today I broke my dominant arm before Xmas so even though there are loads of household chores to do I haven't been able to manage them so have had time on my hands [well I tried some left-handed dusting but I wasn't very good at it. Anyway, here are my thoughts for 4 potential Curses from circa 50 years [or a little less] ago.

1) Nyree Dawn Porter [from New Zealand] here in a clip from the 1967 Forsyte Saga

2) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Cilento The late Diane Cilento (Australian) who was once married to Sean Connery.

3) Julie Christie (British)

and Genevieve Casile (French) - Isabelle in the 1960s kids' series The Flashing Blade. Sadly I can't find the original dubbed version only the 1980s parody (I think by Russell T Davies)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgHjirfqZeo
and she was another Isabelle (Philippe le Bel's daughter in the 1970s Accursed Kings.

Curses! I should have said 4 Cerseis! Though maybe Cersei does sometimes tempt one to curse.

This is actually from the 1950s but French-English actress, Yvonne Furneaux might have made a suitable (if slightly older than book) Ashara Dayne had the character been cast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9nHdaCVLtA
She's at about 1:23 in the foregoing clip from the 1959 version of "The Mummy" with Christopher Lee in the title role and Peter Cushing as the scientist.
