There's not a whole lot for me to add to the birthday entry for Rene Bond I posted last year. Well, I could mention that I have become a pretty popular destination for her on the search engines since then, and I'm not exactly sure why. I guess I should know by now not to question the vagaries of such things.
One thing I could point out is the signature that appears on this photo. I have no way of knowing if it's really Rene's or not, but it's interesting in that spells her name "René." I've seen that spelling in PLAYBOY when she was profiled for the "Porno Chic" article in the August 1973 issue. Since that was probably the only time they talked to her during her lifetime, I suspect her actual name really was René Bond.
Rene Bond would have been 63 years old today. She might be gone from this Earth, but never from our hearts. R.I.P. Rene.
