Isn't Tuesday Weld great? From her first flick Rock Rock Rock where she shares screen time with the Johnny Burnette Trio in their only film performance, to the retarded Sex Kittens Go To College where she proves to be much sexier than the va-va voom overstated Mamie Van Doren, to the utterly nutso Pretty Poison (clip seen above), she's livened up many movies and TV Shows (The Loves of Doby Gillis, 77 Sunset Strip, Naked City, et al). I'm convinced the only reason people bought that Mathew Sweet record Girlfriend was the cover shot (above). She was born Susan Weld in New York City in 1943, and whatever she's doing today I hope she's having a great time. Among her better film appearances are Play It As It Lays (with Anthony Perkins, who also co-stars in Pretty Poison), Thief (with James Caan), Who'll Stop The Rain, Looking For Mr. Goodbar, and Wild In The Country (with Elvis what's his face). Her entire filmography can be found here.
