Sadie Corre, RIP

If I said the name Sadie Corre to you, you probably wouldn’t recognize it. But as soon as I showed you this photo…

most of you would know her immediately. (Hint: “It’s just a jump to the left!)

What I didn’t know until now is that she apparently was inside “Hugo the Dummy” (uncredited) in the movie in episode 818- DEVIL DOLL. She was also an Ewok, and she was in “The Dark Crystal,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” as well.

It seems she passed away on Aug. 26 at the age of 91. There’s a nice obit here.

    I wasn’t aware of her before, but of course i recognize the picture from RHPS. I’m always deeply impressed by an actor, such as her, that is able to carve out a succesful little niche and to keep making a living at it for such a long time. RIP Ms Corre.

    How sad that she had to play Hugo. She couldn’t have any ham! Not only that, she couldn’t have any luncheon meats: not bologna or thuringer…

    I have to confess I’m deeply disappointed that nearly half of the commenters on this post are apparently ignorant of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I thought MSTies were supposed to be more savvy when it came to cult and B-movies? :cry:

    Mike – I’m well aware of the RHPS..saw it originally 21 years ago at a midnight screening in Baltimore’s Senator theater while in high school. Saw it once…that was enough. Hated it then, would most likely hate it now. A thumbnail photo of a bit player in a flick seen two decades ago isn’t exactly going to ring bells for most folks.

  21. Hey, don’t be disappointed in me. I saw Rocky Horror at a Midnight show at least 20 years ago. Obviously the picture is from Rocky Horror. Doesn’t mean I had to know who this woman was beyond a background player.

    Am I the only human that believes Devil Doll to be a superior film to Rocky Horror?

    Rocky Horror gives cult films a bad name.

    I’d endure an intimate evening with Torgo before I’d watch the thing that is Barry Bostwick again. Although I do remember Susan Sarandon looking pretty nice in that movie….

    Devil Doll IS superior, KentuckyCunctator, as far as I’m concerned. I also agree with you that it gives cult films a bad name. It tries way too hard to be “weird”, and it purely REEKS of the effort. But I suppose we’re all allowed our own lousy opinions. Takes all kinds, I reckon.

  27. I like the first half of Rocky Horror but at that point the best songs are already done and it becomes a bit boring.

    This thread reminds me that I haven’t seen “RHPS” in awhile. And so now I’m torn. Do I watch my usual “Young Frankenstein” on Halloween night, or “RHPS” in memoriam?

    @ GizmonicTemp ~ If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Rocky Horror, then you’re well overdue for a booster shot. Sure, only the first half is funny, but it’s a classic and perfect for Halloween.

    As for the rest of you, I’m with Mike. How on God’s green Earth can ANYBODY not instantly recognize a Time Warp reference, especially with a pic of someone obviously from that immortal scene from the movie?

    For my Rocky Horror has always been one of those things you are “supposed” to like simply because of it’s wierdness. Yea..audience participation…yea. As someone exposed to the films of John Waters at an early age….Rocky Horror seems like so much fluff in comparison.

    RHPS: Like it or not ( I like it, but I think I understand why others might not ), RHPS is important to all of us that turn down the lights ( where applicable ) as part of the ( perhaps indirect ) pre-history of MST3K and the gentle art of talking back to, and otherwise interacting with, the movie.

    I’d give Sadie C. 2 paving stones on the Path of Honor that leads to the Gizomincs / Deep 13 National Historic Site and SOL Memorial.

    @ Matty-O # 29: I guess some folks are just blessed with a highly visual memory. :wink:

    As for Rocky Horror “trying too hard to be weird,” I have to disagree. Remember that the movie was released in 1975, and the play ran in London for two years before that. So it pretty well predates the trend of people referencing B-movies or cult films to be ironic or self-consciously “weird”. (It certainly doesn’t predate Susan Sontag’s Notes on Camp, but that’s another matter.)

    I see it as a genuine, if cracked, love song to horror and sci-fi films of the ’30s through the ’50s, with a healthy dose of the sexual revolution thrown in for good measure. Weird? Yes. Disingenuously so, or mere posing? Not in my opinion.

    To appreciate this movie I suggest you concentrate on the thoroughly hammed-up performance by Tim Curry. He’s the center of it for me. Also Meatloaf’s frantic number on the motorcycle. It’s superficial, manic and silly, and you will appreciate it best in that mindset.
