Hey pallies, likes we gotta 'fess up that we have never ever tried to keep up with sharin' the death notices of all of the tons of entertainers who had the powerful privilege of workin' with our one and only Dino.  But, today when our pallies at Twingly Advanced Blog Search lovin'ly lead us to a post at the spyster blog "The Spy Command," where we have shared Matt Helm Dino-centric posts before, we knew that we wanted to share their post, "Daliah Lavi, ’60s spy femme fatale, dies."

Those in the Dino-know will remember that it was Miss Lavi who starred with our Dino in Helmer numero uno, "The Silencers," playin' the baddie "Tina."  Below is that post with a bit of bio info on Miss Lavi, and the coolest of cool candid pose of Miss Lavi chattin' with our most beloved Dino on the set of "The Silencers."

We express our sympathy to those near and dear to Miss Daliah Lavi, as we fondly remember great great work  with our Dino as Matt Helm.  We thanks our pallies at "The Spy Command" for sharin' with the world this news of Miss Lavi's passin'.  To checks this out in it's original source, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Daliah Lavi, ’60s spy femme fatale, dies

Daliah Lavi, who co-starred in the 1967 Casino Royale spoof as well as The Silencers, has died at 74, according to an obituary posted by The Hollywood Reporter.
Lavi also appeared in Some Girls Do and The Spy With the Cold Nose.
In 1966’s The Silencers, Lavi played Tina, a character actually in the first Matt Helm novel, Death of a Citizen.
While the movie was done as a spoof, the basic dynamic was retained from the serious original story. Helm thinks Tina is on his side when she’s really working for the other.
The ’66 movie, starring Dean Martin, took the basic plots of two serious Donald Hamilton novels and went in an outlandish direction.
Lavi’s career extended from the 1950s into the late 1990s. She was born in Palestine. The former actress died May 3 in Asheville, North Carolina, according to an obit published by the Asheville Citizen-Times.
That obit says her “funeral and interment will take place in her native Israel.”

I did not hear this bit of sad news, as Danny G. said it is very sad to see so many people from yesteryear start to pass on. We will all be there ourselves some day too. At least we still have so much in the way of media with us today so we can continue to enjoy it long after the stars have faded away.
