Liselotte Pulver as Fräulein Ingeborg in One, Two, Three (1961).  Credited as 'Lilo' Pulver, she was quite a star in Germany at the time.  The role of the Euro blonde bombshell secretary was repeated in many films, notably in Mel Brooks' The Producers.

What a great long career Athene Seyler had.  She passed away at 102.

John Carradine in two roles towards the opposite ends of his long career.

First, as the gruff character Long Jack who eventually warms to the young lead in 1937's Captains Courageous:

And secondly, as the blustery political candidate in 1962's The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance:

Loved Long Jack in CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS, could not stand Major Starbuckle in THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE (anyone who defends scum like Valance and tries to portray him as an 'honest citizen' can't be trusted themselves IMO!).

Carradine was great in both roles though.

Veronica Cartwright as Cathy Brenner in The Birds (1963).

Love Veronica, but her characters always seem to have the worst of luck in movies, don't they? I mean she gets attacked by our fair-weathered friends in here in addition to....

(SPOILERS ahead)....in the 1978 remake of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, she is in the middle of an alien invasion,  duplicating humans (minus any emotions) and then killing them....she gets outted by the newly transformed Donald Sutherland who shrieks at her. Even though the movie ends, we have to assume she'll probably be captured and forced to go to sleep and end up as one of 'them'. 

In ALIEN, she ends up getting slaughtered along with her other crewmates by the bloodthirsty, chestbursting visitor that climbed aboard their ship. Only Ripley (SIgourney Weaver) manages to survive by the end of the movie.

In THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK, she senses that something is very, VERY, wrong when Daryl Van Horne (Jack Nicholson) comes to town and works his charms on the ladies, particularly on Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer. She tries to warn the townspeople and ends up vomiting herself to death thanks to Van Horne's cherry-eating spell.

Of course, maybe this is karma for her bratty character in 1961's THE CHILDREN HOUR for unjustly turning folks against Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine with her lies about the nature of their friendship.
