Hark! A swinging 60s type…

Wow, that Jane Birkin. What a gal she was. A model, an actress, a singer, a director. She did the lot. Plus, while she was doing it, she maintained hair as well-shampooed as a poodle’s mane, and her face was as clean and shimmering as a butler’s bathroom. Yes sir, she was something. For those who aren’t sure, she was one of those girls-about-town in the 1960s, having starred in Blow Up – a film about models being photographed, then something about a murder – and she sang a rather rude song with Serge Gainsbourg that got everyone quite sweaty between the thighs. It was pretty racy. We shall also never forget her in the greatest film about a death on the Nile Death on The Nile. A fine woman.

As ever, there shall be no Jane Birkin for the guys, without some Tom Selleck for the girls. Below is Tom Selleck.


You’re welcome.

    She remains une grande chanteuse pour Les Frogs though, they just lap her up.
