i had no idea bridget fonda hadn't done anything since 2002. thats crazy.
I remember reading about it a few years ago, and I have no way of knowing if it's actually true. This is the only source I've been able to find:
True or not, she has certainly had enough tragedy in her life.
I could have voted for several (if not all of them) but I gave my vote by an edge to the beautiful Jenny Wright - I read she will be in a new movie soon actually
Wow,don't know if it's true or not,but I hope not.As you said,she's already had enough tragedy in her life.Thanks for the info.
tight race between Amelia Kinkade , but she's a famed animal psychic now so I guess I know where she is and Deborah Foreman so she got my vote. Not only the horror stuff like waxwork, and april fools day and sundown , but also the light comedies like Valley Girl My Chueffer( spelled wrong I know) etc
I had to vote for Bridget Fonda. She was in quite a few movies that I love (Jackie Brown, Lake Placid, Point Of No Return, etc.) and always enjoyed her performances.
Almost voted for Phoebe just for the hotness factor and for Jenny Wright just because I love Near Dark so much and loved her in it.
Meg Tilly, she was awesome in Psycho II. That sequel needed a strong female lead and she delivered in spades.
DEBORAH FOREMAN-funny, charming, vivacious, witty, cute, pretty...Hollywood lost out.
Agreed - saw that film three times at the theater because she was so effective. I hadn't even seen the original at the time but only read the book. Read Psycho 2 book a few days before seeing the film. WOW - what a relief that the film was sooooooooo much better than the book!
SO many fine actresses on this list that I couldn't possibly vote for just one. Instead let me mention some appearances that mostly haven't been singled out yet.
Jenny Wright in I, MADMAN: such a great, underappreciated film.
Deborah Foreman: VALLEY GIRL may be her best film but she totally steals MY CHAUFFEUR.
Meg Tilly: ONE DARK NIGHT!
Phoebe Cates: Let us not forget the holy text that is PRIVATE SCHOOL.
And mega-shout-outs to Anitra Ford, who I have really been enjoying recently in so many great 70s films. THE BIG BIRD CAGE and INVASION OF THE BEE GIRLS are quite good, but MESSIAH OF EVIL is a masterpiece.
Almost went with Deborah Foreman due to Real Genius and thought, I miss her the most. However Phoebe Cates' performance in Fast Times in Ridgemont High cannot be topped IMO.
I have to go with Phoebe Cates. I've been wondering for a while now what the hell ever happened to her.
What Barbi Benton and Bobbie Bresee are up to intrigues me as well.
Maybe her and Pheobe should do a comeback movie together.
Had to go with Phoebe. She always held a special place in my heart after Gremlins, Fast Times, and Drop Dead Fred.
Wow, can't even vote cause all of them are great. It's good to know that Jenny Wright is back in film, count me in. Any one of these women who haven't worked in awhile would reduce me to an autograph clutching stammering fanboy in seconds. I've just missed meeting Mia Farrow a couple of times and I would've loved to tell her I'm a fan of her, her sister, and her mom!
Found out through Imdb that Jenny Wright is not currently listed for the credits for Murder for Dummies, but I am hoping for that to be wrong. I'd buy it even if it was an Ulli Lommell film to show support. It also seems as though Tisa Farrow has weathered some personal tragedy in her life (my prayers are with her), but I couldn't gain any info on an alleged eye injury. She does, however, currently work as a nurse in Vermont, which makes her even cooler to me.
There's a new interview with Jenny Wright in the new Fangoria. I'm glad she didn't turn into a "born again" fruitcake.
In the latest issue of Fangoria, there is an interview with Jenny Wright. There are 2 covers, the first is The Howling, and the 2nd cover is Alice Cooper, talking about his new CD Welcome 2 My Nightmare. Very interesting article.
My first thought was for Pheobe Cates, but when I noticed Barbi Benton listed, I wish we would have got more from her.
I'm casting my vote for other: Paula Shepard of Liquid Sky and Alice Sweet Alice. Will definitely be getting that fango for that interview with Jenny Wright!
