And we might observe the young lady above. She is Jenny Agutter. She's British. This a still of her as "Jessica 6" in the 1976 movie, Logan's Run. Pretty stunning. And that costume. She's completely nude beneath it (if you watch the movie, it's quite apparent). But she's entirely unselfconscious about it. That is quite apparent too. Now, Ms. Agutter does not strike me as an exhibitionist. It's more like she said: "Oh, I got cast in this movie about a city full of people who rather run around naked. Well, I suppose I ought to get comfortable then."
But before I get into more about Ms. Agutter I wanted to examine something that came up in part 1 of this blog. In the opening credits of Makin' It, there's one of those special credits at end. You know, like: "...and Carol Channing as The Beaver." In this case it's "And Lou Antonio as Joseph Manucci." Lou who? Why did Mr. Antonio warrant this special credit. Did I miss something (and I watched a lot of TV)? If anyone, it was Ellen Travolta who should've received the special credit. And what about the other actors listed in the cast? Let's take one, for example: Denise Miller. Was this the height of her fame. If it was, why? Why didn't she go on to the movies and entertainment stardom. What separates one actor from another? What is it that takes Tom Hanks to the stratosphere and Peter Scolari to the entertainment hinterlands when both of them were equally good (and I would argue Peter was cuter and funnier than Tom)? Was it because Tom was taller?
But back to Jenny...
OMG, I forgot all about Walkabout!
I had a friend and room-mate when I lived in Los Angeles. He was an actor. He got cast in a "featured guest star" role (like all those actors in the Cannon clip) on a show called Reasonable Doubts. It starred Marlee Matlin and Mark Harmon.
Her birthday is December 20th. So that's it. She's a Sagittarius. Well that explains it all then, I should think. She simply didn't want to be a Big Star. ;)
