One of the famous actresses and models of all the time Margaret A. Nalon left us last week. For a brief period around the 1960s, people knew her as Vicky Kennedy. Nalon is best known for her part in the movies Goldfinger and A Hard Day’s Night. She was a devoted artist, and her fans supported her wholeheartedly.

She broke her boundaries in the James Bond film of 1964, Goldfinger with the role of Bond’s masseuse, named Dink.
