Bond Girl Lana Wood in Playboy Magazine, 1971

27. August 2014 18:09 by m | 0 Comments

These Playboy pictures appeared in the April 1971 issue, along with Wood's poetry. Lana Wood, in our opinion, is one of the most gorgeous Bond Girls ever, and even though her sister strongly disapproved of Wood's move to pose nude, the publicity was a major reason for her being cast as Bond girl, Plenty O'Toole, in the 1971 James Bond film, Diamonds Are ForeverDiamonds Are Forever.

The Well-Versed Lana Wood

Natalie’s kid sister —an accomplished actress—adds poetry to her bag

AT THE AGE OF NINE, when most young girls are playing with dolls and exploring the neighborhood on bicycles, Lana Wood was a professional movie actress—filling juvenile roles in films that starred her older sister Natalie. Following in her famous sibling’s footsteps began to pall as Lana reached her mid-teens and she went to work at sales and secretarial jobs —until one day in 1964 when Lana, then 18, was offered a supporting role in a television episode of Dr. Kildare. "After the first day’s shooting, I realized that acting was what I really wanted," Lana recalls. So she chucked her steno pad and plunged into TV full time, landing a succession of meaty parts, including 11 months as a resident of Peyton Place. Despite her ongoing record of independent achievement—she’ll guest on a David Janssen-series pilot film this fall—Lana is still more often than not referred to as “Natalie Wood's little sister." Sister she is, but Lana’s a big girl now and a versatile one as well. Her newest interest is writing highly personal and stylized poems—five of which we publish here for the first lime, accompanied by photos of their bountifully gifted author.

You either do not really know
Or you just do not want to know
or
You know
And don’t want to tell me.

Revelation
and
Revolution
at a quick glance
are often mistaken for each other.

Feeling down
and
Falling down
are also
quite the same.

As you raise your head
to look out
to the treetops
you see
feathery
light
branches

breaking up the gray sky
into
tiny pieces
and your thoughts
are being lifted
up
and out
scattering in the breeze
investigating
the clouds
and then
are brought back down
by the rain
and the monotony
of noise
will pacify
till your fingers hurt
from squeezing
the arm of the chair
and you’ll stop
and you’ll go inside again.


The white unfinished
wall that stands
marked only with
patches
of time
cobwebs
of short experiences
of life
fingerprints
of a few
who have tried to
touch
but still empty
and waiting
waiting
for the man
with a full mind
of pictures
who will bring
with him
his colored ideas
and slowly
with soft hands
and deliberate strokes
will draw the warmth
of freedom
and love
upon my mind.
