Molly played Patricia Fearing, opposite Sean Connery, in the movie, and at the request of the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) a number of scenes were cut for being too racy.

She then went on to star in one other movie, 1968 comedy ‘Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River’, and made a handful of TV appearances.
