Ann Dusenberry in The Possessed

In 1977, Ann Dusenberry appeared in one of the largest roles so far in her career. The role was in a TV move titled The Possessed where she portrayed a beautiful young student at an all-girls school. Having only begun taking part in film and television projects about two years previously, this was a terrific showcase for the the talented actress.

One aspect of Ann Dusenberry's performance in The Possessed that many have noted was the fact she played a key scene in the movie opposite an actor who was on the cusp of becoming excessively popular: Harrison Ford. These two had a lot of chemistry in their single scene together.

This was the only real horror movie, besides Jaws 2, that Ann Dusenberry ever participated in. Undoubtedly, the lovely actress would have been great in a slasher flick if she had decided to do one...but, alas, horror film fans can only see her in these offerings.

Karen Allen in The Wanderers

In 1979, Karen Allen co-starred in The Wanderers, one of the best nostalgia/coming-of-age films ever made. The movie evokes a time and a place with great style and vast fact, the only 'problem' with this cinematic treasure is that Karen Allen does not get enough time on screen (at least one of her scenes was cut from the general release version). Regardless, Karen Allen is so strikingly beautiful in The Wanderers it's no wonder at all that her talents were utilized soon after and she became a huge movie star in the 1980s. This early performance from the gorgeous actress should be enjoyed by everyone!
