  1. Quite a beautiful actress in a movie that wasn’t so bad. Rest in peace.

    I most remember her from the small role of a reporter in Robert Redford’s “Downhill Racer.” Rip Kathleen Crowley.

    It would not surprise me if she imprinted a few young artists who later went on to illustrate OMNI Magazine covers with cyber/android females. Breathtaking bone structure. So long, KC.

    The Rebel Set is one of the few MSTied movies that I wouldn’t mind watching unriffed and she was terrific in it. Her character deserved far better than she got.

    I liked her starring role in Target Earth, where she awakens from a coma (after an overdose of sleeping pills) and discovers that the city has been taken over by killer robots. I wonder if the makers of 28 Days Later or The Walking Dead were inspired by that. She was also good in the vampire western Curse of the Undead.
