That last one is a real kick for me, even though the nudity is
basically confined to her cute butt, and the movie looks like
complete dog crap.
When I was about 18, I had
no idea who Catherine Deneuve was, but I had my schoolboy crush on
this woman, Francoise Dorleac, Deneuve's older sister.
How can that be if you never even heard of her?
Long story. Kinda.
Those were the days when the world shut down at 11, even
convenience stores. The only worthwhile offering from the television
networks after the local news at 11 (10 Central) was the Tonight
show, so some non-NBC stations showed a film, then played the
national anthem and bid us good night.
That was a different world, and perhaps a better one in some
One of the stations in our town had a different cinema theme for
each night of the week. Chiller Theater popped up on Friday, with
the obligatory spooky host. There was a Comedy Night, A Night for
Romance, and so forth. One of the nights featured Super Spy Theater.
It doesn't seem possible now that such a minor sub-genre could once
have been capable of commanding an entire night, but that was a very
frigid point in the Cold War and, spurred by the success of the
first three Bond films, America was running wild for "super spies."
That's where I first saw Francoise Dorleac: on Super Spy Theater,
on a sultry night, when I was home from college for summer vacation,
unable to sleep, watching a David Niven movie called Where the Spies
Are. By the time I got around to looking up Francoise's bio, I found
out she was dead. In fact I think she had already died before I
first became aware of her, although I can't swear to have remembered
the chronology with any real precision.
Her car flipped in the south of France, somewhere near Nice.
She was 25.
My boyhood crush, who was not so much older than I, has now been
dead for 44 years.

Lisa Baur in Animal House. Gorgeous woman. Spectacular. She was
never heard from again after this film.
Sarah Holcomb in Animal House
Mary-Louise Weller in Animal House
and I had a lot to say about Animal House (1978) in the
reviews we wrote back in 2003. I think it was one of our best
efforts, and it includes a lot of supplementary information.
