It's Catherine Denueve, from Roman Polanski's 1965 film 'Repulsion' ;)

Bingo! We have a winner.

The film has some great day time street footage obviuosly filmed ad-lib. Spotting the Cooper is not easy (around 27 mins in), but there's plenty of other stuff to look out for.

I remember watching the film when BBC2 and Channel 4 were showing a whole load of cult stuff in the early '80s ;)

I was rummaging through some old Stanford Hall show pics and came across this one from 2009 I took of a lovely '64 1275 S, the reg' number rang a few bells and I remembered it's the car that was featured in a Taurus stage 1 tuning kit review in 'Car & Car Conversions' back in July '65...
