This is very sad...

She was one of my childhood heroines.

Sad news indeed. I'd read about her recent health decline in the press and the indications were that the end was near.

I had one of her posters in my bedroom, growing up. I remember her the most from "Logan's Run" where she played Holly, the girl who was the receptionist at the "New You" salon. It was one of the very first films I ever saw on the big screen in it's initial release. (and made quite an impression on me!)

This news has just left me bummed out.

It was time...and it was a difficult fight.

Do you remember 'Saturn 3'? She dabbled in scifi a little but never returned to it after getting some critical acclaim for 'The Burning Bed'.

Saturn 3 was an...interesting movie. I think that's the only time we ever see her topless in a movie or on tv.

Bizzarely... I just bought the soundtrack to Saturn 3 on CD.... The music was about the only thing worthwhile about that movie... aside from the beautiful John Barry set designs.

Frankly, seeing her topless wasn't that big of a deal... her best charms were all above the neckline. (Which is probably why she excelled at TV, rather than movies.)

She was a lovely woman. So sad.
