Born to an English Royal Navy father, Maltese identical twin sisters Madeleine and Mary Collinson caused quite a stir upon their arrival in Britain during April, 1969. Beginning their career with various modelling assignments, they became the first twin Playmates in the October 1970 Playboy, after attending a party where they met Victor Lownes, the head of Playboy's European operation. The twins sealed their pop culture immortality by taking the title roles - but were dubbed throughout - in Hammer's TWINS OF EVIL a year later and, after five flirtations with the British sex scene - George Harrison Marks' short HALFWAY INN, Donovan Winter's SOME LIKE IT SEXY, squalid entries GROUPIE GIRL and PERMISSIVE, and the Keith Barron/Kenneth Cope vehicle SHE'LL FOLLOW YOU ANYWHERE - Hollywood beckoned, but their only American credit was LOVE MACHINE, where they shared a shower with John Philip Law [text abridged from 'Maids of Evil' post 1/2/12].
