Kay Lenz in Headhunter

In 1988, Kay Lenz starred in the Headhunter, a movie about two Miami cops working a case involving voodoo-esque slayings menacing the local Nigerian community. The other star, Wayne Crawford, brings a lot of humor to the film and the overall mix of horror, action and comedy works well. Kay Lenz looks lovely throughout, maintains a likeable character and has good chemistry with her male co-star Wayne Crawford.

For a long while, Headhunter has remained a fairly obscure movie. This can largely be attributed to the fact that the film has not seen a proper, wide-ranging DVD release. Another factor is the snobbery of certain horror fans who sought out the movie and then dismissed it for not be a good enough horror movie. Headhunter is pretty light on horror (though the end battle is quite nice) and is more of a cop action-thriller with some horror and comedy elements thrown in. Beyond that, it is just a fun low-budget movie made to fill space on video store shelves and not meant to be taken too seriously. Though I enjoyed the film, I really only watched it for Kay Lenz and in that respect I was not disappointed at all.

Carolyn Seymour in the first episode of Survivors

In 1975, Carolyn Seymour starred in the British post-apocalyptic TV series Survivors. Previously, the actress had a lead role the 1971 second series of the UK show Take Three Girls and had featured prominently in several major motion pictures.

For the first episode of Survivors, Carolyn Seymour wears a wig which gives her very different look than her usual iconic close-cropped haircut. She is quite visually striking in the pilot episode and this, combined with her strong performance, no doubt aided in the appeal of this wonderful series.

Here are some images of Carolyn Seymour in the original episode of Survivors:

Meg Foster in profile

Here's a great circa 1978 profile of Meg Foster. Alongside some factual information concerning her life and career, the actress offers some quotes about her background in the theater and her perspectives on acting.

Maryam d'Abo in Something Is Out There

In 1988, Maryam d'Abo starred as a humanoid alien named Ta'Ra in a science fiction miniseries called Something Is Out There. The show, created by veteran TV producer Frank Lupo and featuring fantastic special effects by the legendary Rick Baker, was also turned into a shirt-lived weekly series following the success of the original miniseries.

The lovely Maryam d'Abo, fresh from wowing international audiences with her role in the James Bond film The Living Daylights, decided to conquer American television next. Her beauty is doubtless one of the things that made Something Is Out There so appealing to audiences.

Unfortunately, Something Is Out There wasn't destined to become a hit weekly series. It sure was fun while it lasted, though!

Genevieve Bujold in L'incorrigible

In 1975, Genevieve Bujold re-teamed with Jean-Paul Belmondo for the outrageous comedy L'incorrigible. The duo had previously appeared together in the 1967 film Le Voleur. Genevieve Bujold made the French movie L'incorrigible in between her busy schedule of 1970s American blockbusters and it was her only French language project of that decade. She is terrific in her role of Marie-Charlotte, a social worker working with a recent parolee named Victor (Belmondo). Victor is an incorrigible con-man who takes Marie-Charlotte along on some of his irreverent adventures and it doesn't take long for her to fall for him.

Genevieve Bujold looks absolutely stunning in L'incorrigible and it is always great to see her in a straight comedy.

Carolyn Seymour in Unman, Wittering and Zigo

Unman, Wittering and Zigo is a deeply disturbing film about a nasty group of kids at a boarding school. After their former teacher dies mysteriously, David Hemmings comes in as their new teacher and is almost immediately drawn in to the mind games being played by some of the most obnoxious British teenagers you're likely to see. The upside is that a young and very beautiful Carolyn Seymour plays Hemmings' wife.

In Unman, Wittering and Zigo, Carolyn Seymour has her trademark short black hairdo, though here it is not as closely cropped as she would later have it. All in all, she is wonderful in her role of the doubtful, oblivious wife.
