Movie "Stars" I love Part 1
Forget about the big names, "A-List" talent or whatever that means. I'll take a Character Actor or someone beaming with a real charisma over those manufactured Hollywood clones any day. I give special props to those actors who were unafraid to tackle on genre projects. I present you with a list of some of my favorite actors, who within good or bad films, totally won my heart... Let the idol worship begin! JOE DON BAKER of WALKING TALL, WACKO and CHARLEY VARRICK LINDA BLAIR of ROLLER BOOGIE, THE EXORCIST and SAVAGE STREETS ROBERT FORSTER of MEDIUM COOL, ALLIGATOR and JACKIE BROWN ANGIE DICKINSON of POLICEWOMAN, PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW and DRESSED TO KILL HAL HOLBROOK of RITUALS, ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN and THE FOG PAM GRIER of JACKIE BROWN, COFFY and BLACK MAMA, WHITE MAMA SCOTT JACOBY of BAD RONALD, THE LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE and DEADLY RIVALS BARBARA STEELE of BLACK SUNDAY, CAGED HEAT and PIRANHA KEN FOREE of DAWN OF THE DEAD, LEATHERFACE and FROM BEYOND DAPHNE ZUNIGA of MODERN GIRLS, THE SURE THING and MELROSE PLACE TONY ROBERTS of PLAY IT AGAIN SAM, ANNIE HALL and AMITYVILLE 3-D MICHELLE MEYRINK of VALLEY GIRL, REVENGE OF THE NERDS and REAL GENIUS CHRISTOPHER GEORGE of PIECES, GRADUATION DAY and MORTUARY PAMELA FRANKLIN of THE INNOCENTS, THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE and SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS JOHN GLOVER of THE CHOCOLATE WAR, GREMLINS 2 and 52 PICK-UP DEBORAH FOREMAN of VALLEY GIRL, MY CHAUFFEUR and APRIL FOOL'S DAY GEORGE KENNEDY of COOL HAND LUKE, AIRPORT '75 and JUST BEFORE DAWN A lot of these folk may not be acting anymore, but may their performances in each of their films live on forever. Part 2: The Revenge to air at a later date, to be determined.
