Wicked pics Keith! I don't know what I'd do if she pointed that gun at me?

K and S said...

I've never seen this movie. I remember seeing the poster and print ads as a kid, dying to see it but have never gotten around to it as an adult. Thanks for the reminder! I'll have to check it out soon.

Planet Mondo said...

That looks entirely my sort of film Keith -

Keith said...

Hey Metalhead. Thanks. Yeah, I'm not sure what I would do either.

Keith said...

Hey K&S. Thanks for the comments. I hope you get a chance to see it. It's been ages since I've seen it. My post got me wanting to check it out again.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. I think you would definitely dig it. Cheers!

I've never seen this movie myself. I've heard of it though. I do know who Dorothy is. I watched the movie about her. Wasn't it Star 80?

Fantastic post of a beautiful lady. What a tragedy.

Darius Whiteplume said...

Somehow I have never seen this one or Flesh Gordon. Shameful, really. :-)

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I hope you get a chance to see this movie. Yeah, the movie about her was Star 80. I saw that growing up. That was my intro to Dorothy.

Keith said...

Thanks PTA. Yeah, it is a shame how things turned out for her. She was quite a beauty.

Keith said...

Hey Darius. I've seen this and Flesh Gordon. Maybe you'll get a chance someday.

I haven't seen this in ages. I was probably to young to even appreciate it when I did. I'd love to see it again.

she was murdered? wow, how sad...
looks like a fun movie

Scott (gotankgo) said...

Nice selection of photos. That second pic is my favorite of the bunch!

Dooder City said...

That is such a tragedy. I can't believe someone would harm such a beauty.

Keith said...

Hey Rev. Thanks for the comments. It's been some time since I've seen it. I can't even remember how years ago it's been.

Keith said...

Thanks Scott. Glad you liked them. I wanted to make sure I showed a good selection of her from this movie.

Keith said...

Thanks Deana. It is so sad that she was murdered. I wish I had known who she was while she was living. It was only after her death that I discovered her.

Keith said...

Thanks Molly. It is a good movie. She didn't do much before her murder.

I have not checked into this film too much though I have always heard of it due to Dorothy Stratten. These stills are great and I will probably try to download this one soon if I can find it and write about it.

Man Keith, I may be going through the phase you went through a few backs back. I am just burned out lately blogging. I am stuck. I know it will pass but I can't seem to get writing lately.

Cool images.

Hey Bill. I hope you get a chance to check it out. I haven't seen it myself in years. I want to watch it again to see if I still like it. It's definitely a b-movie, but she makes it special.

I've gone through that feeling again recently. I thought about taking some more time off. I know some other people who are taking breaks from their blogs. I say you've got to do what you've got to do. I'll definitely miss you though and I hope you won't be gone for good.
