Kathy Simmonds appeared in the 1968 film The Touchables as one of a quartet of Pop-Art princesses who kidnap a rock-star and imprison him in their plastic, see-through bubble house.


Simmonds was Harry Nilsson's girlfriend at the time that he recorded A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night and is pictured in one of the photos on the inside cover of the album.


When it came to printing the album sleeve, the story goes that Harry and Derek Taylor (The Beatles' press officer and a very dear friend of mine), were discussing the layout and Harry asked about the inside. Apparently Derek said "Well, we'll put a picture of Kath in one heart and you in the other." That's all I know, really.
