Julie Mendez from opening title to "From Russia With Love"

I know what happened to her- she's my great aunt

Hey, Julie Mendez is my great Aunt- she doesn't do movies or dancing anymore- she just spends time with her son in their house in england. She's still just as eccentric as always- last time I visited her was 2 years ago though.

What fun! Can you tell us more about her? Did she dance in any other movies? Does she have any funny stories about working on the set of To Russia with Love? How about her dance career - did she have any regular belly dance jobs at restaurants?
 
Sure,
The only thing I remember talking with my family/her about was her snake dance on the show on the buses, but I know she's done a lot more. She definitely had smaller dancing jobs all the time. My mom remembers when she was about 4 or 5, she'd go over to Julie's and be terrified the whole time because of the 2 snakes she had. But thats about all I know for sure- I'll ask my mom and grandparents about it at some point and post what I find out later. I've only really seen her 2ce for a substantial amount of time as she lives in england and I've lived between Canada and the States my whole life. Sorry i'm not more helpful- i'll get some info over the holidays when I'm with my family.

O-M-G :shok: :shok: :shok: (I had to go and search YouTube didn't I?)




Holy c£&p there are some appallingly outdated attitudes, and Indian and Arabic is all pretty much the same thing, clearly....:rolleyes:.
 
Oh no, not the open legged pelvic thrusts. Kind of reminds me of Anita Hariss's turn as a belly dancer in "Follow that Camel". Can't find the clip from YouTube any more, though, or I would post a link to it.

No worries, my pleasure

If you click on the name of the user you want to send the message to, on the left hand side of all the posts, in blue, then you'll get a drop down menu, and one will be send a private message.

Or, if you click on the user name, then view public profile, then the contact info tab also has the send private message option.
The second way is longer 'round, but just in case you have any probs with the first way it's there.
