Virginia “Ding Dong” Bell (born 1932 in Montrose, California) is a topless model and actress. She started her career in the 1950s as a burlesque dancer.
Virginia had one starring role in a feature film, Bell, Bare and Beautiful (1963), which was the product of legendary sexploitation team of Herschell Gordon Lewis and David Friedman. It was made to fulfill a request by her husband, Eli Jackson. In it, Virginia plays a burlesque dancer pursued by Lewis regular Thomas Wood. But his attempts at finding true love with the “girl of his dreams” are thwarted by her gangster boyfriend (played by David Friedman). Wood gets around this speed bump by tracking Virginia down at the nudist camp she frequents, which is where at least half the film takes place.
Virginia would make another appearance in Lullaby of Bareland (1964), a series of three shorter segments spliced together to flesh out the run time. Virginia’s contribution is a lengthy striptease routine.
Aside from feature films, Virginia appeared in many nudie loops, which can be found in the video series, “Reel Classics”, and in the “Big Bust Loops” and “Super Boobs” series from Something Weird Video.
