<p>Tracy Reed (born 21 September 1942, London) is an English actress. She was born Clare Tracy Compton Pelissier, the daughter of the director Anthony Pelissier and the actress Penelope Dudley-Ward, but took the surname of her stepfather, Sir Carol Reed, following her mother's remarriage in 1948. During a film-acting career that lasted from the early 1960s until 1975, she appeared in about thirty movies and was at one point under consideration as a replacement for Diana Rigg in The Avengers.
Reed is known for her role as Miss Scott, the mistress of General Buck Turgidson (George C. Scott) in Dr. Strangelove (1964). She has the only female part in that film and is seen in only one scene-when she answers the phone while Turgidson is in the bathroom. She is also shown as the centerfold "Miss Foreign Affairs" in the June 1962 copy of Playboy magazine being read by pilot Major T. J. "King" Kong (Slim Pickens) in the B-52. In the photo, she is lying down, apparently nude, with the January 1963 issue of Foreign Affairs – Vol. 41, No. 2, containing Henry Kissinger's suggestive article "Strains on the Alliance" – strategically draped across her behind.
