The sleek silhouette of redheaded head-turner Samantha Eggar would be as fresh and contemporary if she were debuting today as when her Vogue-quality profile first catwalked onto the world stage in The Wild and the Willing (1962). Samantha was a bit of both wild and willing in the role she is best remembered for, that of a young girl held captive by a sexual misfit in the creepy thriller The Collector (1965). Although no nipples, pubes, or crack of bum survive in The Collector's final cut, long, exquisitely lensed scenes of Eggar's captor bathing the comely hostage's nude body in a sudsy tub are erotic in a highly charged, eerie, and disturbing way. Samantha's open-view roll of breast flesh in A Name for Evil (1973) is pleasing in its own way, but The Collector is where her best and oddest sexual thrills are to be found.
